Your Complete Guide to Applying
to Templeton Academy

Welcome to Templeton Academy!

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?

A Transparent Look at Our Application Priorities

As you might expect, our unique educational philosophy makes our application process look different too.

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.

Our goal is to figure out what makes you you and what motivates you to love learning, not simply make you take a standardized test or submit a coached essay.

We think about education as a process of learning how to be, how to do, and how to know. Because of this, our biggest priority in the application process is to find out three things from students and families:

  • What do you already know and what do you want to know? (Think facts and content)

  • What do you already know how to do and what do you want to know how to do? (Think skills and aptitudes)

  • What have you already become and what do you want to become in the future? (Think character and identity)
