Enrollment Process

Grateful for influence

As alumni, my wife and I are both grateful for the influence Temple Academy has had on our lives. I have watched two brothers, three sisters-in-law, and now my own daughter grow up and graduate under the influence of the same school. The Lord truly blessed our family when He led us to Temple.

Shared faith

“I have the opportunity to work with outstanding students and faculty in the College of Education at Lipscomb University. I can share my passion for teaching and learning – focusing on more than academics. While at Temple, our teachers went out of their way to assist students in their learning and shared their faith with us. I will always be grateful to them and want to model their examples with my graduate students.”
