BUILDING CHARACTER & INTEGRITY

It is the philosophy of Timothy Christian Schools that all aspects of Christian education, including interscholastic athletics, must fulfill its mission “to develop academically prepared Christian disciples who embrace Christ’s call to transform the world.”

Timothy Christian is committed to providing a God-centered education. As such, Timothy expects its coaches and athletes to pursue the goal of excellence with Christ-like character. Consistent with this goal, Timothy Christian seeks to develop the entire student, as it believes that successful Christian education results in the development of a balanced lifestyle in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions of a student’s total being . We believe athletics is more than competition between two teams of individuals representing different schools; it is an educational experience between the coach and the team through practice, competition, and person-to-person relationships. Participation in athletics contributes to good character development, good sportsmanship and the development of God-given talents and abilities. We expect our athletes and coaches to work hard, enjoy the sport, respect each other and their opponents and honor Christ in all they do.

METRO SUBURBAN CONFERENCE

The Metro Suburban Conference (MSC) proudly announced the addition of seven member schools beginning with the 2014-15 school year.  This major transition culminates years of work to grow the conference which began with just four schools less than a decade ago.

“On behalf of the MSC, we are thrilled to be welcoming these seven schools to our conference,” Fenton principal and president of the Metro Suburban Conference Board of Control Todd Leden said in a release. “The additional opportunity for student growth and achievement is very exciting and we are confident this expansion will be a positive experience for all communities involved.”

The MSC Conference boasts 15 teams — 4 public and 11 private.  Average enrollment in the conference dropped from 1,062 to 649 with the addition of seven private schools.  It is worth noting, however, that If the IHSA “multiplier” is applied to private schools, the MSC average enrollment is 729 students.

MSC expansion reunites Timothy Christian with former Private School League rivals Chicago Christian, Wheaton Academy, and Aurora Central Catholic.  The expansion also allows for the creation of a “cross-town” rivalry with IC Catholic Prep, also of Elmhurst. New members beginning in 2018-19 include Aurora Christian, Bishop McNamara, Rosary, and Wheaton St. Francis.
