High School

Go Beyond instruction; inspire leadership

From personalized and targeted instruction in the classroom to opportunity-based clubs that give our students real-world experiences, there is an intentional effort to combine challenging programs with a culture that encourages a Christ-centered community. We want our students to live up to their full God-given potential, and we train them to be courageous followers of Christ.


Timothy Christian High School is the recipient of the U.S. Department of Education 2019 Blue Ribbon Award. The Department recognized Timothy Christian High School as an Exemplary High Performing School.




Our test scores are up! 

While test scores have declined regionally and nationally, Timothy Christian Schools ACT and SAT scores have risen over the past 4 years.

SAT Cumulative 1225
ACT Composite 26.8


What we aspire to do — educate servant leaders — has not changed for over a hundred years. For generations, teachers, coaches, and staff have helped students identify and nurture their God-given gifts and talents. 

3 National Merit Finalists
2 National Merit Semi-Finalists
9 Merit Commended Students

more than 1.7 million high school juniors gathered in gymnasiums and classrooms across the country to take the PSAT/NMSQT, a modified version of the SAT that determines who is eligible for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Out of those 1.7 million juniors, only 50,000 were recognized by the program, and only 34,000 of those students received letters of commendation. The top 1% of all scorers became National Merit Semifinalists, and the top 8,000 students—⅕ of a percent of the original test takers— were named National Merit Finalists. Three of those 8,000 are timothy students.

Opportunities for Every Student

Over half of all high school students participate in two or more activities and can choose from over 24 Clubs & Extracurriculars. 

At Timothy, we’re small enough that a student can dive into lots of different clubs and activities, yet big enough to be competitive. From leadership positions in DECA to creating inspiring music in orchestra, there’s a place for every student. Participation in many different extracurricular activities makes our students college, career, and life ready.

On Monday, November 20, the National Honor Society hosted the annual Soup Lunch and Offering.

On Monday, November 20, the National Honor Society hosted the annual Soup Lunch and Offering. Our community served together in a number of ways: washing apples, serving soup, and donating money towards the offering. Thanks to the efforts and generosity of students, parents, and faculty, we were collectively able to raise a total of $4,523.23, which helps to fund the Chicago Christmas Dinner occurring next week. This event helps to bless families by providing them a Christmas meal, fun activities, and generous presents for both children and parents. Thank you and to God be all the glory!

The high school students in child development class put their knowledge into action by creating and teaching a developmentally appropriate lesson to the preschool students in Mrs. Wieger's preschool classroom.

The high school students in child development class put their knowledge into action by creating and teaching a developmentally appropriate lesson to the preschool students in Mrs. Wieger's preschool classroom. After learning about the developmental milestones that preschool aged children experience, such as hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, and gross motor skills, the high school students worked collaboratively in groups to write and teach a lesson to the preschool students.

The preschool students were ecstatic to have the "big kids" on campus be their teacher. The high school students also had the opportunity to observe and learn from teachers Mrs. Wiegers and Mrs. Lanenga how to interact with preschool students to best support their development. In addition to this being a rich and memorable learning experience for both the high school and preschool students, this lesson also provided the unique and special opportunity for cross-campus collaboration. It is always so wonderful for the separate buildings on Timothy's campus to come together in order to build community, inspire one another, and give honor and glory to God in all we do.

Thank you, Team Timothy! Last Friday, sophomore Evie Bode collected 94 turkeys and 206 whole fryer chickens for Lampstand Ministries. The turkey drive was Evie's Community Giving Project for DECA (an after school business club that develops leaders and entrepreneurs). Lampstand Ministries is an urban ministry on the west-side of Chicago. On November 11, as part of Lampstand's Thanksgiving Outreach, all the turkeys and chickens were donated to families in need. Thank you for supporting Evie's DECA project and Lampstand Ministries.
