About Us

Description:

Boulder, having been named the “happiest place in the US” and nestled in view of the Flatirons and Frontrange Mountains beyond, is home to a healthy art scene, the University of Colorado, and is a destination for entrepreneurs. 

With Templeton Academy’s commitment to making private education affordable, parents can choose a model that prioritizes personalization and experiential learning. Templeton’s mission, “to transform the lives of its students by providing highly individualized, dynamic and experiential education in small classes with dedicated and skilled educators” offers parents an education alternative that reflects their values. 

Boulder’s commitment to health and wellness informs our commitment to a co-curricular program that supports student’s commitment to athletic development and socio-emotional learning. The city’s focus on innovation makes this an incredible fit for students to really explore the city while learning.

Our Campus: 

  • Conveniently located in Superior, Colorado, our full-time students will enjoy all the benefits of our world-class, on-site fitness and training facilities.
  • Specialized, integrated sports programs in partnership with the RoughRiders Sports Club®(ice hockey, basketball, volleyball, golf, soccer, baseball, softball, and Esports).
  • The Sport Stable spans over 186,000 square feet that includes two NHL sized hockey rinks, one practice sheet; two turf fields for soccer, lacrosse, and baseball; 3 full basketball courts; batting cages & pitching areas; six full-sized volleyball courts; six full swing golf simulators; an Esports Lab; and a 21,000 sq.ft. Sports Performance and Fitness Center.

 

Everyone at Templeton Academy Boulder is thrilled to open its doors in September 2020 with a middle school program, grades 6-8, and a founding high school class. We look forward to expanding in years to come and offering a full 6-12 program in the near future.

APPLICATION INFORMATION

Templeton Academy is an experiential micro school offering an academically rigorous college-preparatory curriculum designed to foster intellectual curiosity through active learning and community exploration.

What if the future of education was developed around the student and driven by the student?

This is the question we are always asking ourselves. The time and energy of mainstream education can get tied up by standardized testing, complex reporting, and a one-size-fits-all approach in the classroom. Meanwhile, the needs of individual students fade to the background. We are pioneering an educational model that genuinely puts students first and that emphasizes the skills that colleges and employers value. Our model does not offer an “alternative” education, it offers an education experience that will help your student fall in love with learning and take an active part in their own education. 

Why not prepare students for successful, full lives starting in middle and high school?
