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.

Matt Davidson started his career as a history and Bible teacher at Aurora Christian School. But no matter what his title has been the students and mission of Christian education have always come first. And Matt believes the only way to truly inspire students to follow Christ is through personal connections and speaking power into their lives.
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.”
