The philosophy at the heart of Temple Baptist Academy is thoroughly Biblical. We realize it is our privilege to come alongside parents assisting them in fulfilling the mandate they have from God to develop the mind of Christ in the life of their child. Every subject is taught from a Biblical worldview, for all truth is God’s truth. Our teachers strive to show their students each day the Scriptural emphasis God has placed in every subject area.
