WELCOME TO TIMOTHY CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS
Thank you for your interest in Timothy Christian Schools. Founded in 1911, we have been tirelessly partnering with families for over one hundred years. Very few schools can boast our combination of a proud tradition and contemporary relevance. We are a college-preparatory school with a unique approach to career readiness. Most importantly, we are Christ-centered in everything we do. We are not only in the business of education—we are called to leadership development, as we prepare our students for a lifetime of achievement and adventure for Jesus Christ.
There are countless parents, extended family members, alumni, current students, and a host of others who would testify that goals are being reached and dreams are being realized through the work of Timothy Christian Schools. By the grace of God, these claims will persist as we carry on in the nurturing and development of leaders and difference-makers for our world.
Please contact Dan Quist at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like further information. We would welcome the opportunity to share with you and your child the vision of Timothy Christian Schools.

WHY TIMOTHY CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS?
We have a high standard for excellence. Our teachers are highly qualified, but it is the way our staff focuses on your child that makes a Timothy education so compelling and essential. Timothy educates the mind, enriches the soul, and provides physical training to the body. It doesn’t get any better than that. Here are the top 10 reasons to consider a Timothy Christian education:
1. Christian Worldview: We train, equip, and inspire our students to make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ. This has been the mission of Timothy Christian Schools for over 100 years, and we are fiercely committed to it.
2. Our Campus: We have three distinct schools – an elementary school, middle school, and high school – on one campus. We just completed a 16 MM middle school that includes a state-of-the-art field house.
3. Academic Excellence: We offer 10 AP classes, multiple advanced classes, and dual credit and honors classes. Our curriculum is entirely Christ-centered. We have academic support and gifted programs as well.
4. Competitive Sports: Beginning in 6th grade, students can participate in organized sports. The TCS athletic program is dedicated to developing Christ-like character and leadership through sports.
5. Extra-curricular Activities: From drama, to the arts, to scholastic bowl, to choir, band, and orchestra, there’s a place for every student. We are proud of our State Champion Scholastic Bowl Team and Mock Trial Team. We have students competing and representing Timothy Christian Schools on a national level.
6. The Arts: At a time when many public schools are cutting art programs, ours is expanding. We believe that visual art, like creation, is a gift from God. The search for beauty should be a driving force in every Christian.
7. Our Community: We are a tight-knit community that draws from over 55 surrounding cities. Our students represent over 250 area churches.
8. Busing: We are closer than you think! Our buses travel within a 20 mile radius. We even offer express busing.
9. Our Staff: Timothy teachers, counselors, and staff love God and their students. They consider it a great privilege to walk alongside families and their church as students learn and grow in Christ Jesus.
10. Partnership: We are your partner in education. An education from Timothy Christian Schools provides integrity, as well as a sense of community that reinforces family and Biblical values. Our partnership with families and churches helps us develop academically prepared disciples who are world transformers.

Every busing situation is unique so please contact us for more information about your specific circumstances.

Timothy Christian Schools uses FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to conduct its tuition assistance analysis. Grants are not guaranteed if you apply, however, we do our best to assist you if needed. Tuition assistance grants will be distributed to eligible families upon completion of the admissions and enrollment process. To apply for tuition assistance click here – www.online.factsmgt.com/aid.
PRESCHOOL & KINDERGARTEN
If your child will be 3 (for preschool), or 5 (for kindergarten) by September 1, he/she is eligible to apply for one of those programs here at Timothy Christian. Our application deadline for preschool and kindergarten is the first Friday in February every year. If we receive more applicants than we have spots available, we conduct a random draw to fill those spots.
Throughout the school year, Timothy allows open enrollment in preschool. For example, if your child turns three by November 4, they would be eligible to enroll at that time. Open enrollment is only available if space allows. Open enrollment is not available for kindergarten, however, if space is available, students can start at the beginning of the third quarter in January.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT PROGRAM
Psalm 22:27 tells us that “all the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him.”
Timothy is authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant alien students, and celebrates this reminder of God’s sovereignty over all the nations of the world. We welcome international students and have established our World View international student program to increase cultural diversity on our campus. All students are challenged to grow as academically prepared Christian disciples, but there are also many opportunities in and out of the classroom to share perspectives and traditions that reflect the nationalities and heritages of students. Together we extend and deepen our global awareness and appreciation for all of God’s creation.
ADMISSION POLICY OF NON-DISCRIMINATION
Timothy Christian Schools admits students of any race, national and ethnic origin to all the rights and privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school, and is non-discriminatory in its policies and practices.
