Timothy Christian Middle School 
8th Grade Annual Washington DC Class Trip

Save the Date for the next trip: April 23-25, 2025!

Nothing makes history come alive like a trip to Washington DC. Did you know 98 eighth grade students and 10 staff flew to Washington, D.C. this spring and spent 3 days and 2 nights bonding and exploring the Capitol? We visited the Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, US Capitol, Library of Congress, Supreme Court, Museum of the Bible, and the Jefferson Memorial, just to name a few! Our Christian tour guides from NationsClassroom gave a behind the scenes look into each exhibit and continuously connected Christ to history.

Cost: Approximately $1,200 payable in installments starting in October and ending in March. Financial assistance is available.

It was very impactful on my view of the world, history, and my relationship with God. The trip was fun and it was a great way to interact with my friends, grow closer with them, and even become closer with students who I wasn’t close with before the trip. —Alexis Brandsma

Fundraisers & Donations

Throughout the year we will host “Donut for DC days” in the Middle School, where the 8th graders can help sell donuts before school. We will also have a babysitting/gift wrapping fundraiser in December.

The profits from the  fundraisers will be combined and go towards purchasing the Washington DC t-shirts and other incidentals for the trip.
