- Admission to the Templeton Master of Arts in Teaching requires a minimum 3.0 undergraduate GPA, a 3.5 GPA is preferred.
- All applications are reviewed by Templeton faculty and staff and are judged on the following criteria: 1) Passion for classical education, 2) Promise as a skilled teacher, and 3) Academic excellence.
- The MAT in Classical Education is a cohort-based program with a maximum capacity of 25 students. Because space is limited, fulfilling admissions requirements is no guarantee of acceptance. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, so it is advantageous to apply early before spots are filled.
