The doors to Timothy Christian Schools first opened to students over a 100 years ago. Many things have changed over time—we’ve grown, we’ve expanded our campus—but what has stayed constant are our core Christian values. From our youngest preschool students, to seniors getting ready to embark on their next journey, we are committed to providing each student distinct instruction, training, guidance, and mentoring from a Biblical perspective.

It’s this Biblical worldview that is at the heart of our mission. And it’s what makes Timothy Christian Schools different. We are committed to high academic standards, athletic traditions, and artistic excellence, and we encourage our students to hone their gifts in preparation for a lifetime of Christian service. Timothy Christian Schools’ students are academically prepared disciples of Christ who help transform the world.

The relationships I have formed with friends and teachers at Timothy are invaluable. My faith has been enriched here. I’m not sure where I’d be without the support of this school.

My dad passed away in elementary school. The Timothy community gathered around me. These teachers love their students. They made returning to school feel safe.

I’ve played basketball all four years. My teammates are my best friends. At Timothy, I get to do something I love, while moving forward in my spiritual walk.

Timothy gives me the opportunity to express myself through music, singing, and creative writing. These teachers and this community create opportunities for me that I would not have had elsewhere.
