Student life at Templeton Academy is structured to provide a well-rounded educational experience both in and out of school. While academic success and student growth are our top priorities, we believe strongly in the importance of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. During the school day, our students focus on their academic courses and how to manage their time so that they have space outside of school to pursue their interests. Homework averages one to two hours daily and there are blocks of time during the school day for students to work with their classmates and teachers on homework.
Both the size and philosophy of Templeton Academy provides our students with the opportunity to develop new interests and to pursue new activities. All students are given the opportunity to propose co-curricular activities during the school day that interest them - clubs, events, speakers, and courses. All school activities take place under the direct supervision of staff members. Templeton Academy also encourages our students to participate in extra-curricular activities outside of school - service, jobs, internships, arts and athletic participation. Our curriculum is designed to provide students with the skills that will allow them to open any door they choose to open and to have them learn in the community rather than in a school bubble.
Templeton Academy students who live in Washington D.C. are eligible for the Transit Subsidy Program, which "offers free or reduced fares for District students who use Metrobus, the DC Circulator, or Metrorail to travel to and from school and school-related activities."
