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

Leadership-Minded

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.

Virginia Miedema, an 8th grader, represented Timothy at the Patriot's Pen celebration dinner. 

On Sunday, January 22, a celebration dinner was held in Montgomery, Illinois for local post winners of the Patriot's Pen contest. Virginia Miedema, an 8th grader, her parents, siblings, and grandparents all attended the celebration. Virginia wrote an essay in October for the Patriot's Pen contest. The topic was "Why Veterans are Important." This celebration was for all the local post winners. There were twelve students chosen to attend for the district prize. Virginia did not advance at the district level, but the VFW received over 1000 entries so it is a real honor to be selected locally and represent Timothy. The Elmhurst VWF will also host another pizza party for Virginia and some of the runners up on February 22.

Teachers at Timothy Christian Schools Go Beyond the classroom and help students nurture and identify their God-given gifts and talents. Over the next few weeks, we'll randomly feature a few of our teachers. This week meet Ms. Emma Hamm. 

Teachers at Timothy Christian Schools Go Beyond the classroom and help students nurture and identify their God-given gifts and talents. Over the next few weeks, we'll randomly feature a few of our teachers. This week meet Ms. Emma Hamm. 

"As a teacher, I treasure the responsibility of nurturing the minds and hearts of my students in a way that honors the Lord and points my class to Him. I believe that the classroom, at every grade level, is a space to learn about God’s created world and prepare students to enter into that world to serve Him and others well. Each child is made in the image of God and has inherent value, so the classroom should be a nurturing environment where students see their true identity in Christ and build a classroom community in light of that truth. 

 All of this growth and development happens within the context of the community of support that the Lord provides — parents, family, and church body. As a Christian educator, I am committed to caring for the educational and spiritual needs of each learner, praying for my students regularly, pointing them to the truths we find in Scripture, and setting a Christ-like example with the help of the Holy Spirit. " — Ms. Hamm

Favorite Verse: Psalm 16:6-11

The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance. I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

For the second year in a row, VEI places 1st at State and qualifies for Nationals! 

The Timothy Christian High School VEI program placed 1st  in the IL-WI Business Plan State Competition, which qualified them to represent IL-WI at the National Competition in April in New York City. This is the second year in a row with a 1st place finish. Congratulations to the Business Plan Team (pictured): Tyler Wolterstorff, Adriana Veliz, Jon Tameling, Mykaela Pettigrew, Ethan Munk, and Sadie Orange.

For the Business Plan Competition, the VEI students prepared a business plan, which included a company description, product decision rationale, marketing plan, and financial data. This represented 30% of the final score. The Oral Competition portion represented the other 50% and the Question & Answer Session represented 20%. 

VEI is a student-directed program where they run a virtual business in the classroom. This is an international program and there are over 3000 firms around the world similar to the one that can be found at Timothy Christian High School. The course is not run like a classroom; it is run like a workplace where the students are in various departments and there are chief officers. Students are responsible for making daily business decisions and running the business for one fiscal year starting with the business and ending with an annual report. What you see happening each day in a business is what is happening in the VEI classroom day in and day out.

Throughout the year, students have an opportunity to compete in different competitions and attend trade shows where they have to set-up a booth and sell their products. The course takes what they have been learning in the classroom and applies it to a real-world situation. Though there is core content that students are learning, the secondary curriculum (and one the instructor believes most important) is the development of leadership, conflict resolution, problem-solving, speaking skills and much more.

If you are interested in seeing the VEI firm in action, they would love for you to come by for a visit.  Contact Mrs. Kendra Lee () to set-up an appointment.  To learn more about the VEI program visit www.veinternational.org

I believe that Christian schools work alongside parents to develop a child’s God-given abilities so that he/she may use them to further His kingdom.

Teachers at Timothy Christian Schools Go Beyond the classroom and help students nurture and identify their God-given gifts and talents. Over the next few weeks, we'll randomly feature a few of our teachers. This week meet Mrs. Christine Voss. 

"The wonderful thing about Christian education is that it helps students grow not only academically, physically, and socially, but most importantly, spiritually. It is written in Deuteronomy 6:4-7, “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” 

As a Christian school teacher, I desire to assist each child in this pursuit of loving our Heavenly Father with all of his/her heart, soul, and strength. I believe that Christian schools work alongside parents to develop a child’s God-given abilities so that he/she may use them to further His kingdom." — Mrs. Voss
