Temple Academy
60 West River Road
In 1976 a small church had a dream to provide quality Christian education for its members. With little finances but faith in a big God, Calvary Temple, now known as Centerpoint Community Church, began construction on what became a million-dollar project in Waterville, Maine. Starting out with only three classrooms and three teachers, the small, humble beginning has grown into a school that now educates students from Pre-K through 12th grade with over 24 faculty members.  In May of 2021 the school separated from the church and  became an independent, private, Christian school, governed by a Board of Directors with members representing several area churches.

The success of Temple Academy’s decades of service has to be shared with all who have been a part of its history. Hundreds of people have poured into the Temple students of past and present. Enormous sacrifices have been made to help the school succeed. Teachers worked long hours to near exhaustion, giving up high-income jobs with benefits. Some took no income for extended periods making do with only the bare necessities, so that the children God placed in their care would have the best that could be offered. The church supplemented this ministry for many years until it became financially independent, and although the costs have been great, the blessings have been even greater.

Temple Academy’s vision has expanded over time. Instead of reaching out solely for the church’s family, the school has opened its doors to as many families in the area who share the same faith principles and are open to having their children taught the Word of God. In recent years international students have joined our ranks, adding to the diversity of our student body. 

Throughout its history, the leadership of Temple Academy has always sought to raise the bar of academic excellence. Temple is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, is a member of the National Honor Society, and is a member of the Maine Principals Association.

Remembering Temple Academy’s humble beginnings reminds us of the most foundational truth; we can do nothing of value without the hand of God. We pray for His wisdom, grace, and guidance as we navigate the challenges ahead.
