Dear Prospective Parent,


Thank you for your interest in Temple Academy. Our academy is a small private Christian school nestled in the heart of Waterville, Maine.  We are more than just quality, rigorous education for our students. Temple offers an experience and memories that will follow that student for a lifetime. We have been serving our community with faith-based excellence in education for over 40 years.

As a strong believer in faith-based education; my two oldest sons are graduates and my youngest is in elementary school.  I am not only an administrator, but a parent, who has lived the Temple experience for 15 years.  The camaraderie, friendships and deep bonds created throughout the years at Temple are the intangibles that you cannot measure but would have a void without them.

 At Temple Academy, education transcends everyday school life, welcoming students, and their families into a warm non-denominational, faith-based community where over 30 churches are represented. We are a school where your child will be safe and well cared for, but also flourish personally and intellectually. I look forward to getting to know your family throughout the application process that takes about two weeks to complete. The best way to understand what Temple is about is to schedule a tour.  I am happy to have a conversation with you and give you a tour of our campus.

 Whether you are looking for preschool or kindergarten through 12th grade, you'll learn firsthand how faith and study infuses our classrooms. Community is an integral part of our education, and we seek families who take a strong interest in their children's development and who will partner with us to support their children's education.

We are an active school that offers competitive interscholastic sports teams from 5th grade -12th. We are a Maine Principals Association school for competing at the high school level and a Sheepscot League school to participate for middle school in sports soccer, basketball, volleyball, softball, baseball, tennis and track and field.  New to the athletic arena is the MPA sanctioned E-Sports. We also offer mathletes, robotics, driver’s education, a fishing club, yearbook, student council, honor society and many other opportunities.      

Our international component adds flavor and diversity to our school serving over 25 countries with a quality education over the past 15 years. We offer a homestay program where students become sons and daughters. My oldest son is from Serbia who started as a student and who has now become family.  

We enjoy an active outreach program that spreads out beyond our campus and touches the real heart felt needs of our community.  We thoroughly believe if our doors were to close tomorrow and the community wasn’t affected by it, then we haven’t done a good job of sharing Christ in tangible ways.  

 It would be my pleasure to introduce your family to the Temple Academy family. I look forward to speaking with you.
