Renew is Timothy Christian High School’s 8-day term that occurs after Christmas Break and prior to the second semester. The focus of Renew is to engage students in discipleship opportunities through course work, internships, and service and/or travel experience not available to students during the academic semester.

There are three Renew options for Timothy Christian High School students:

Internships — Juniors and seniors can arrange for an unpaid internship in a work area of interest.

Courses — Students have the opportunity to attend unique courses not normally found in the high school curriculum, often with multiple off-campus field trips and experiences.

Trips — Students can embark on a discipleship or mission trip.  Renew trips are domestic and international.



Renew’s internships have become very popular.  They are a blessing to the students as well as those the hosts whom the students shadow.  With the rising numbers of students choosing this option, our committee has determined that internship signup must begin earlier so as to provide necessary, additional organizational time.

Registration for internships are complete.  If you need to discuss this further please contact Mrs. Lee.





This past year’s course offerings were great once again. Students had the opportunity to take unique courses like Rock Climbing and Discipleship, Sports History, GarageBand, Music in Chicago, and many more.
