College & Counseling

Go Beyond Boundaries: Live Courageously

Our College and Career Counseling Center is ready to help students take their next step after graduation. Counselors help students with appropriate course selections for graduation, finding scholarships for college, as well as guide students through the college selection process. 

The counseling department hosts college planning workshops, conducts class presentations that take students through career interest inventories, and schedules individual student meetings beginning in the student’s freshman year. All high school students have a Scoir account, which is a web-based college and career planning platform to create college lists and search for careers.

New! College Conversations Series

From the Blog: College Readiness

Greetings from the College and Career Center at Timothy Christian Schools. We are excited to work with you and your students this year as they prepare for life after high school. There are many paths a student can take following high school graduation, but we anticipate that the majority of our students will continue their education at the college level. In an effort to help you and your student plan and be as well informed as possible, Timothy is offering the following opportunities for you to learn more about the college admissions process. I want to personally invite and encourage you to attend as many of these events as you can, as I do believe they can be very helpful as you navigate through this year.

Seal of Biliteracy Program

Dear Parents & Students:

The Illinois State Board of Education has established a Seal of Biliteracy program to recognize high school graduates who have attained a high level of proficiency in English and in one or more other world languages. This recognition is designated on a student’s transcript and high school diploma with a receipt of the State Seal of Biliteracy, provided that all conditions and requirements for the program have been met.

In order to qualify for this program, students must take an approved standardized test in English and the world language of choice. The English test is the AP Language. The world language test will depend on the language. (If you are currently registered in AP Language, you will take the AP exam as designated.) 

The tests can take place anytime during the high school student’s career, but recognition will be designated upon graduation. In order to be considered proficient and receive the recognition, a score of 4 or higher is required on the AP test and a score of intermediate high on the approved world language test.

If you are interested in pursuing the Seal of Biliteracy, please complete the form. Mrs. Lee or Mrs. Raley will reach out to you with more information.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Mrs. Lee or Mrs. Raley.

Have a wonderful day.

Mrs. Kendra Lee
