Temple Christian College offers a Middle School program from Year 7 through to Year 10. Our curriculum is comprised of an exciting and broad range of subjects (STEM inclusive) that enables all students to have access to a thorough preparation for study at Years 11 and 12. During the second semester in Year 10, all students wishing to complete their SACE certificate participate in a programme of preparation for the selection of courses required for Stages One and Two.
At Temple Christian College our passion is that all students complete their secondary schooling with a very real sense of achievement, of hope and destiny for their future, empowered with the learning, skills and confidence to pursue all that God has in store for them in life. Year 11 & 12 students have the ability to follow a number of different pathways (SACE, ATAR and VET) as they journey through their senior years. To assist students in their selection process, Temple offers a programme of Course Counselling involving students, parents, subject teachers and course counsellors.
The Diverse Learning Department at Temple Christian College primarily works with those students at the extremities of the learning spectrum; those requiring additional support and those needing extensions. We acknowledge that students do not all have the same needs when it comes to learning and therefore in any given class, the abilities of students as learners will vary from student to student. We have a passion to work with students, teachers & parents to promote the inclusion of all students in school activities, both in and out the classroom.
Students at Temple Christian College will participate in a number of organised camps and excursions throughout their journey at the school. Every year, parents receive comprehensive information prior to each of these event from the teachers involved and often copies of this information will be published online. The Student Planner contains an annual consent form which will be signed at the start of each New Year to cover the majority of excursions scheduled.
At Temple, our aim is to promote an active and healthy lifestyle through our Sport & Physical Education Curriculum.

The Performing Arts are a much valued and vibrant part of the life and experience of Temple Christian College. The Arts, in all its forms, are a gift from God and encourages the holistic development of our students. At Temple Christian College, students have the privilege of participating in drama, dance, musicals, choirs, a myriad of music ensembles, praise and worship teams, and audio-visual production, through which their creativity, imagination, and skills are fostered in a caring environment within a Christian framework.
Drama is compulsory at Year 8, an elective option at Year 9 and 10 and then becomes an option to study as a core subject in Year 11 and 12. At junior levels, students are taught the art of effective verbal communication, improvisation, movement, gesture, characterisation, script-reading and analysis through a variety of theatre games, group activities and class exercises.
