From Templeton Academy DC

At Templeton Academy DC, our mission is to revolutionize student agency by our students having a voice and choice in their learning and educational journey. We encourage our students “to be in the room where it happens” — to position themselves to take an active role in the issues and ideas about which they are passionate. We do this by using the city as our classroom for a hands-on, experiential learning experience, through the adoption of a rigorous Gold Standard Project-Based Learning curriculum, and by centering our school around a Core Advisory Program that supports students in developing traits and gaining core skills for success such as self-regulation, compassion, agency, and purpose. Our vision is creating a world full of purpose-driven lifelong learners prepared to thrive in college, career and life.

The City is a Our Classroom!

Learning isn’t limited to a desk or a classroom; and we believe school shouldn’t be either. Actually, we think the most meaningful learning often comes from being out in the world and interacting with community members which is why we say the “city is our classroom.”
