Since Temple Academy was established in 1971, our approach has been to make a Christian education available to every family with the lowest costs of any private or christian school in the Knoxville area. Our job is not to take the place of the family, it is to come along side and assist in the educational foundation for their life.

Academic Excellence

Our school has been granted the highest academic accreditation available in the state of Tennessee.

Student Life

Our aim is to prepare every child to fulfill God’s purpose for life. It is more than academic instruction, it is influencing students to make a difference for Christ in this world.  At Temple Academy, each to student is challenged to “Take the High Road” in their lives by choosing to pursue Christ in everything they do.
