Thanks for taking the time to look at the TBS website.
We're so glad you've visited us. Welcome!
TBS is a private Christian school, with students from K3 through 12th grade, located in the suburbs of northern Virginia. TBS operates as a ministry of Temple Baptist Church.
Our mission is to prepare our students academically and spiritually for a life of service to Jesus Christ. What does that mean? Good question.
It means Temple emphasizes solid academics and an orderly, disciplined environment. And, of course, we teach from a distinctively Christian perspective. That is, we encourage students to follow the Bible, God's Word, as their reference point for moral values and character development. We also take the view that fine arts are an important part of the development of each student.
Our philosophy is that although the curriculum is important, the teacher makes the difference. To that end we look for caring, Godly, and competent teachers. (Most of whom have graduate degrees.) Our teachers daily demonstrate that their teaching is ministry-oriented; it's not just a job, it's a calling. We're especially thankful for our caring staff.
TBS has a wonderful atmosphere where teachers and students are respected. We're diverse; our student population comes from countries all over the world. And despite our "old school" penchant for order, we love to have fun and believe students should look forward to coming to school. So we have Spirit Days, Jersey Days, field trips and competitions to keep an upbeat spirit in the school.
And one last thing. Yes, we are a private school in the DC metro area, but we're surprisingly affordable and we work hard to remain so. Because our school is a ministry of Temple Baptist Church, we are able to offer a great education for a very reasonable cost.
If you'd like to learn more about our school, you ought to visit us. Just call the school office and setup a tour.
Our school year begins the week before Labor Day and ends the weekend of Memorial Day, but you can arrange a tour anytime of year.
We admit it - TBS is not for everyone. But if you are looking for a Christian education that emphasizes a strong academic foundation, thinking skills, and a commitment to Christ - well, you may want to check us out.
TBS is accredited by the North American Christian School Accrediting Agency (NACSAA) and by the American Association of Christian Schools (AACS). Our school appears on the Virginia Council of Private Education (VCPE) website under NACSAA accredited schools.
As part of our AACS membership, we are also members with the Old Dominion Association of Church Schools (ODACS), primarily for academic, Bible, and fine arts competition.
