Your Complete Guide to Applying to Templeton Academy

As the world debates the importance of transparency in the admissions processes of our higher education institutions, we are stepping forward to share our application process with you directly.

We know there can be a lot of questions when it comes to filling out an application — especially one that will have a huge impact on your future. That's why we’re here to help you explore both the practical and theoretical aspects of applying to Templeton Academy. Our goal at Templeton Academy is to figure out what makes you you and what motivates you to love learning, not simply to make you take a standardized test or submit a coached essay.

Our biggest priority in the application process is to find out three things from students and families:

  1. What do you already know and what do you want to know? (Think facts and content).
  2. What do you already know how to do and what do you want to know how to do? (Think skills and aptitudes).
  3. What have you already become and what do you want to become in the future? (Think character and identity).

We are excited that you’ve shown interest in what a Templeton Academy education has to offer you. We hope you will find our application process easy and our resource helpful and informative as you begin this journey.
