and Great Joy
Templeton Academy was founded to revolutionize the way Students learn by mentoring the critical thinking and problem-solving skills they need to thrive in college, career, and life. We welcome young people from all backgrounds and seek to nurture them into purpose-driven lifelong learners who use their gifts in a way that brings them joy and serves others.
Through meaningful relationships with their Advisor and their peers, Students engage in innovative curriculum that helps them delve deep into who they are — their strengths, interests, and values. Learn more »

Success in the Innovation Area
Most of today’s schools are stuck in a 19th-century curriculum and instruction model. Despite a culture and economy focused on technology and innovation, conventional schooling isn’t helping young people develop the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in the 21st-century.
Discovering passions, pursuing personal goals, learning accountability, developing essential skills to build on those passions and achieve those goals is what Templeton Academy is all about.
