TCS is a wonderful school for students who want to succeed academically and athletically. My daughter struggled with reading when she was younger. Her teachers at TCS identified the issues and worked with her and us on a specific reading enrichment program tailored to her needs. Her reading skills have improved dramatically and she doesn`t complain about having to read. My daughter is challenged in her classes and encouraged to try her hardest. She enjoys math and bible class, especially memorizing scripture. I appreciate the caring and dedication shown by her teachers!My daughter also loves playing on the soccer team and learning new sports as well. The coaches are as caring and dedicated as the teachers. They show and teach patience, perseverance, and good sportsmanship. It`s such a pleasure to see the team open and close the games with prayer.

Our daughter has been a student at Timothy for 5 years now and I must say by far they offer THE BEST academics, life skills preparation as well as Christian education you will get and/or find anywhere within the Tr-State. Timothy is not only an educational institution it is a family friendly environment which fosters a culture of integrity, diversity, and agape love. A year ago our daughter Taylor-Faith was dealing with how to address/deal with peers whom she was upset with. To our surprise after she worked through how she was feeling she began quoting scripture and reciting biblical principles as to how to cope while still showing love for those who upset her. Dr. Shalen Bishop{Middle school principal} was instrumental in assisting our daughter all the way through the process, guiding her in how to effectively resolve conflicts thus helping Taylor-Faith's character develop into the unique person GOD made her to be.

The care of teachers at Timothy Christian does not end in their class, but it extends beyond the classroom. Teachers here show love and they care for their students. In addition to the academic classes offered, a variety of art classes are available as well as choir and band. As a student athlete, I am involved in many varsity sports at TCS. I enjoy the close environment here because it allows for a family-like environment.

The teachers truly care about you and desire the best, not only for your education, but also for your spiritual development. My coaches throughout high school have especially been great mentors, willing to invest in my life and expecting me to grow. They have pushed me to become the person I am today, and I am forever grateful for them.

Timothy Christian School is truly a blessed placed to be if children are seeking the Lord. The teachers here are all God-like and strive to imitate Christ's love for others. The school puts Christ at the center of everything it does, and the teachers and coaches of its sports teams urge the students and athletes to do the same and live a God-glorifying life. Through music, sports, art, and academics, Timothy students can learn to live for Christ by utilizing their God-given talents.
