There are so many choices we make for our children that God has entrusted to us as parents, and we dutifully accept this role day after day. The Christian school is vital in this challenge and more so today than ever before. With a steadfast and gritty determination, Timothy Christian School—teachers, staff, coaches, parents, grandparents, alumni, and students—has partnered with the home since 1911 in cultivating the potential of our youth to the glory of God.
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 for the body. It doesn’t get any better than that. Here are the top 10 reasons to consider a Timothy Christian education.
As Director of Advancement Bob VenHousen’s job is to advance Timothy financially. Call it semantics, but the way Bob sees it, the word advancement in his title, isn’t just tied to raising resources. To Bob advancement has a much deeper meaning: to advance the Kingdom of God. And that is what’s been at the very core of a Timothy education for over one hundred years.
Laura Horner’s life was changed in the parking lot of Timothy Christian Schools—not once, but twice. It was in that parking lot where she experienced selfless love and acceptance. It was an act that so deepened her faith, it set her on a course that eventually led her across the world to her son.
Mr. Scholma, a 5th grade teacher, drives 90 miles just to teach at Timothy Christian Schools. Why? Because it’s more than just a job. It’s a community with a unifying vision to educate disciples who will transform the world.
Among the choices we make on behalf of our kids, where they will attend school is one of the most significant. By the time our children are in elementary school, our kids will spend the majority of their waking hours in the academy. All the more reason to “discern” what’s best rather than merely to “decide.”
