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.
