School Notes

  • Go Beyond. A motto, or a battle cry, that represents "us" in just two words. Simple yet ambitious. Two words that imply action and endless pursuit - an overarching goal that is never fully achieved and a dream that is never fully realized. As soon as our school succeeds in any arena, we almost immediately hear the charge again: Go Beyond! It is a motto that never allows the finish line to come into view.
  • Sound overwhelming?
  • Hang in there with me and keep reading.
  • At Timothy Christian Schools we Go Beyond the boundaries and limitations of status quo. We Go Beyond previous benchmarks and accomplishments. We Go Beyond the conventional standards that have limited the potential impact of education for too long. Most importantly, we Go Beyond the academic teaching of the Bible and put our faith into action. Perhaps most impressive about this is that the entire Timothy community has adopted this motto. Students, teachers and staff, parents, grandparents, alumni, volunteers, prayer warriors, donors, board members, and the list goes on. The evidence is clear: We don`t settle for less around here.
  • Our high school was awarded the coveted 2019 National Blue Ribbon. Only 50 non-public schools in America received this extraordinary achievement this year, thus placing Timothy Christian among the very best. More specifically, this demonstrates that our students and our faculty are among the very best in the country! You see, Go Beyond is not just a catchy phrase or a marketing strategy - it is our DNA. Take the time yourself to put us under the microscope, and I`m fully confident that you will find Go Beyond to be a vibrant and authentic description of Timothy Christian Schools. We are committed to it!
  • This mindset of commitment and drive can often lead to pride. Yet in the midst of this great strength you will find a humble admission here at Timothy, actually a core belief, that we can accomplish nothing of eternal value apart from Jesus Christ. (John 15:5) He is above all, and through all, and in us all. (Ephesians 4:6) We desire to give Jesus Christ the highest place in our school and to make a difference in the lives of others for His cause and His Kingdom. It is because of Jesus that we Go Beyond. And it is because of Jesus that we are not overwhelmed in our pursuits.
  • From preschool to high school, it is our mission to ignite academic growth and inspire courageous leadership one student at a time. Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen. (Ephesians 3:20, 21 NASB)
