Looking for an affordable quality school to call home for the 2020-2021 school year?
The Templeton Academy Schools based in D.C. and Nashville are accepting students for the coming school year. Keep reading to learn more about why Templeton Academy could be the perfect fit for your student, what the application deadlines are, and what to expect in terms of tuition and fees.
Why Templeton Academy?
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. Templeton Academy is an experiential micro school serving students grades 9-12 at its Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C. location and students grades 6-12 at its Nashville, TN campus. It offers an academically rigorous curriculum designed to foster intellectual curiosity through active learning and community exploration.
By approaching only two subjects each term in a four-term academic year, our students are able to truly concentrate on the topics before them.
Our block approach allows students to spend several hours a day on each subject, giving them a chance to explore critical questions and deepen their understanding of complex topics.
We average only 10 students a class – a structure that encourages classroom discussion rather than lectures and collaboration over competition.
We use cities as our classroom, getting out into the city frequently to complement and enhance our academic work.
Our innovative, micro school model means that our application process looks a little different. 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.

Tuition and Fees
We believe that high quality education should be available for everyone. With tuition of just $15,550 for the full academic year, Templeton Academy is one of the most accessible private high schools in the Washington, D.C. and Nashville areas. Rather than putting tuition toward building and maintaining expensive facilities and grounds, we use the city as our campus, focusing our budget on hiring the best full-time and part-time teachers.
However, we fully appreciate that tuition of just $15,550 is still unattainable to many families. Because of this, we offer flexible payment plan options and financial aid opportunities
Here's a quick look at our tuition and fees for NEW students. Full information on Tuition and Fees can be found here or by clicking on the image below.
The online application for the 2020-2021 school year is available here. Admissions decisions will be made by the Admissions Committee once all supplemental materials are received. Applications are accepted on a rolling admission basis if space is available.
