Admissions Policies

The final approval or disapproval of a child to be admitted to Temple Christian School is governed by the school’s Board of Education. The administrator at the school screens each student prior to final acceptance.



  • The natural parents or legal guardians must subscribe to the Statement of Faith and rules governing dress code and discipline procedures.
  • Parents and students must honor the purposes, philosophies, and Biblical lifestyle beliefs of TCS.

TCS reserves the right to deny admission to a student if his or her behavior or emotional development indicates that he or she could not be best served by our school program. TCS reserves the right to deny students who Temple cannot serve in our academic setting. Testing for readiness for the student’s entrance is required before acceptance. TCS reserves the right to deny admission to any family/student whose beliefs and lifestyle are not in harmony with the stated philosophy and purpose of the school.

TCS is a faith-based institution providing an education in a distinct Christian environment, and it believes that its Biblical role is to work in conjunction with the home and church to mold students to be Christ-like. On those occasions in which the atmosphere or conduct within a particular home or by a particular student is counter to or in opposition to the Biblical lifestyle the school teaches, the school reserves the right, within its sole discretion, to refuse admission of an applicant or to discontinue enrollment of a student. This includes, but is not limited to, being convicted of a felony, living together without being married, condoning or supporting sexual immorality, practicing a homosexual lifestyle or alternative gender identity or espousing beliefs that promote such practices, or otherwise having the inability to support the moral principles of the school.
