Dedicated Teachers

“I attended Temple Baptist Academy from the time I was four years old until I graduated in 2008. I was ready for the classes in the engineering field because of the dedication of my teachers at Temple. I am grateful for all the time and prayer that was invested in my life by the faculty while I was at the academy.”

College Preparation

“While at Temple High School, the teachers helped prepare our classes for when we would go to college. Several classes that we took in high school were some of the same classes that I took in college, so this helped me already have a basic understanding for college-level material.”

Christian Influence

My wife and I are both thankful for the influence Temple Baptist Academy has had on our lives. I have watched two brothers, three sister-in-laws, and now my own daughter grow up under the influence of the same academy. I can say 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, the 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.”

Elementary

Preschool – 5th Grade

Childhood is a time to lay the foundation for an exciting and happy life. We strive to give each student a solid academic foundation in the formative years of learning.

Core curriculum: language arts, mathematics, science, history, geography, and Bible

Enrichment classes include art, music, Latin, and physical education

Building a broad base of core knowledge, acquiring the ability to work independently and as a group member, learning to persevere when faced with difficulty, and developing an excitement for learning

K4 & K5

Kindergarten students enjoy an activity-oriented learning environment with an emphasis on reading (phonetic approach), writing, and numbers. Students will learn to read before they graduate from kindergarten. The academic curriculum is supplemented as needed to expose children to unique educational themes.

Temple Baptist Academy-007

Grades 1-5

Phonics mastery is the cornerstone of the elementary reading program while strong foundations are systematically laid in mathematics, grammar, science, history, and geography.

The Academy is known for being a school with high academic standards; equipping students for success in whatever field God directs them. One of the reasons for such excellence is the exemplary curriculum in each of their classes. In addition to the basic academic curriculum, students in the elementary school benefit from enrichment classes such as Bible, Latin, Applied & Vocal Music, Band, and Physical Education.
