This school does have some positive aspects, but there are many things to look out for if you are considering sending your child here. Some of the staff member's children get away with anything they want, yet other children are harshly punished for very minor things. The teachers are very legalistic and do not show much "grace", only judgemental attitudes. If your child does not fit the fundamental, Baptist mold, they will not be accepted. I love the Christian aspect, but this legalistic attitude can actually push your child away from Christ instead of make them desire to hear His word. If this school had a more nurturing and accepting attitude towards kids' differences, it could be a much better school.

I have attended a couple of other schools before TCA, and this school is definitely my favorite. The teachers are all very nice, and they always help you if you don't understand something. There is a great Christian environment at the school, and it is really obvious that the all of the staff cares about you and your education. I also really like the principal at this school. He's really nice, and you can tell he also cares about your education and future. I hope I can go here until I graduate:)

I am so pleased with the nurturing atmosphere at TCA. My daughters enjoy both their friends and their classes. They have been challenged to work hard and to do right - very pleased with our school choice! I plan for them to graduate from Temple!

If anybody told me they wanted their children to attend this school I would do my best to convince them otherwise. First of all the teaching is TERRIBLE, my kids did not get the attention they needed and when asked for help the teachers didn't even know how do do it!! The teachers are very inexperienced and are not ready to teach yet. The staff is horrible and focus more on your social class and the clothes you wear than your actual academics, they are very degrading and judgmental toward the students and I don't know a parent that would want their children involved in this school. My children would come home almost every day from school and tell me how terrible their day was. They will definitely not be attending next fall. To the other parents out there that are thinking about this school, I strongly do NOT recommend it!

TCA is an excellent place to have your child have a quality education with Christian values! The opportunities to excel are great and they are evening offering AP classes starting this fall! It is a place where students can call their school a "family". I have one already graduate from there and the other will be a sophomore this fall. I highly recommend this school!

the school is okay but the favoritism is a big yes there. the teachers are unfair they are nice to only the ones who go to the church. there is no extra credit for those who need help. they don't care about your feelings. it is like they want to break you down. the teachers don't care if you pass or not. it is a horrible school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Most of the elementary teachers are excellent and have been teaching for many years. In junior and senior high, teachers are hit or miss...they really need to focus on keeping the great teachers when they get them. There is a high turn over rate for middle and high school teachers. Also, the grading structure needs improvement. It's frustrating to have one test (exam) each quarter count for 33% of a child's overall grade. They can do great all quarter and then have their average drop significantly all based on one test.

TCA has MANY problems First of all EVERYTHING is abeka and no not just all the books Every day the teachers follow the abeka lesson plans to get through the entire book in one year which is not really necessary Even though the school passes the required minimum days of school required by law if we miss a day due to weather, we have to make it up to keep up with the abeka schedule Also we have to have quizzes and tests on mondays and thursdays and homework on wednesday nights. I have heard teachers say that they dont like doing this but they have to because thats what abeka says Abeka books are ineffective for the most part math and science are the worst The teachers are all way too inexperienced. the majority of them went to PCC and some didnt even major in what they are teaching, or any education for that matter In most classes all we do is read out of the books while the teachers repeat what we just read The grading system is frustrating Homework counts little to nothing the 2 tests per quarter count 33% countless quizzez count 33% and the exam is 33% it is punishing and impossible to bring a grade up if you do bad on a test since they are averaged by category

So far, I have been very happy with this school. The class sizes are small and the academics are challenging, but teachers will help your student if they struggle. The most important thing is that the main focus is Jesus Christ and bringing Him glory in all areas of life.

I removed my kids from this school after a number of years. The teachers are overloaded, the leadership is inadequate and I agree with other parents, that if your family does not go to the church, the kids are not favored like the ones who do. My kids had a mostly positive experience there, but I was not happy with it. They are in public schools now.

I took my kids out. The bullies were out of control and if your child isn't part of their church or related to a staff member, you can forget about getting any attention to this issue or any other. The favoritism shown towards "the IN kids" shows up everywhere....sports teams, winning contests, you name it. The elementary teachers were great. Not too many are great in the upper grades. One of the math teachers lowers the grade because the paper isn't folded right and that was the first week of school! A big blow to a straight A student. That's not a "teacher" thats a drill instructor.

I went to school here from the ages of 3 - 18. This school molded me into the person I am today, I am grateful for the school and the staff. I learned a lot and made some great friends. The staff was great , it is a small school with an easier learning environment for students and if you dont want your children to be taught evolution and be involved in sex and drugs then this is the place for your child. My whole family including mother, aunts, uncles and cousins went here. Its been around a long time!

Teachers work extremely hard to creat e a nurturing learning environment and the principal is a great leader! I am not a member of their church and it has taken me some time to get to know everyone = they are super nice!

Elementary grades have been great, but junior high has many issues. If your child struggles, it is too bad. The teachers keep moving no matter if your child gets it or not. Junior high is a huge adjustment and if they fall behind, their grades begin to drop and it can be a very negative experience for your child. My child will not be going back in the fall.

TCA is a wonderful school for my children! They have a qualified and caring staff who consistently go the second mile. I wholeheartedly endorse Temple Christian. May the Lord continue to bless this great school!

Its better for your child if you attend the church. Also, the principal seems to change every year. To many quizzes for children under the age of 13. The school seems to lack fairness especially to be 'Christ' centered.

If you are not a church member your children will not get the proper attention.

My children have attended Temple Christian Academy for 6 years. Temple Christian has outstanding academics and an outstanding Christian emphasis. I strongly recommend TCA!

The school is lacking in qualified staff. The curriculum is out of date and the middle school and high school classes are lacking in discipline and focus. Some teachers are not teacher certified and there has been a revolving door for principals in the past few years. Very disappointing for a private and Christian school experience.

They need to focus on what's really important and let some of the little things like clothing style go.
