The Templeton model is the product of a vision of what education can be: a life-giving, formative experience that unlocks the passion and potential of each student. Here at Templeton, we have asked ourselves the tough questions: What is the ultimate goal of education? What type of environment is most conducive to deep learning? How can a high school education prepare a student for life? How can it be more accessible?
But now, it’s your turn to think big and ask tough questions. As you think about applying to Templeton Academy, the first step is to learn about our educational philosophy and ask yourself if what we offer seems like it could be a good fit for you and your family.
