The educational philosophy of Temple Christian Academy is based upon a God-centered view of truth and man as presented in the Bible. We believe that a child's education must aim for the total person: academically, spiritually, morally, and physically. We also believe that a Christ-centered curriculum and academic excellence can coexist. Therefore, we integrate God's Word into every part of our students' learning so that the student will learn to see all truth as God's truth.

It is our belief that each TCA student has a unique ability and personality. We encourage our students to strive for both personal excellence and independent thinking in all their endeavors. Through Christ's guardianship, we hope that our students will mature to lead a prioritized wholeness in life, be productive leaders, and become a testimony to Christian living (Matthew 5:16; 6:33).

High School Graduation Requirements

All high school students must earn at least 26 credits in order to graduate. Credits are given according to semester grades and not the end-of-the-year grade. To earn a credit, a student must receive at least a 60% for each semester. Since this is a Christian school, a student must also be enrolled in and pass a Bible class each year while attending TCA. Please see the table on this page for TCA's credit requirements for high school graduation.

Seniors will be permitted to participate in the commencement exercises with satisfactory completion of all course requirements leading to full credits required for graduation.
