We were new to Illinois and TCS last year - our kids started in October. They both received very warm welcomes from their new teachers and classes.

I couldn't be happier with Timothy. We bought a house in Elmhurst specifically because the public schools were "so good" as everyone told us. So we when we first started considering Timothy Christian because of its faith component, we were also shocked to discover that Timothy students out-rank Elmhurst public school (along with the Catholic school) kids.
Timothy has proved itself not only to be a wonderful, nurturing environment where Christian values are taught and lived out, but to be an academic powerhouse where students' gifts are encouraged and challenged.
We're so happy here!

We are thankful each day that we have found such a wonderful community to raise our children in. As the children get older and are exposed to more and more, it is comforting to have our children live and learn in an environment where so many other children come from families with similar morals stressed importance of family involvement.

"We love Timothy! Our oldest daughter is in fourth grade currently. She started Timothy when she was in preschool, so she's had six different teachers so far. My wife and I agree that every teacher has been excellent. Not a lemon in the bunch! Not even close. All have displayed exceptional skills in the classroom, a tremendous heart for the Lord, and a deep love for their students. Our oldest daughter told us early on this school year that her teacher now is her favorite so far. The funny thing is, my wife and I are quite sure she's said this every year from preschool on!"

"My children are happy and feel loved, this only can improve the education experience. I feel strongly that if the environment is caring and nurturing all children will learn. A happy area allows them to feel safe to learn and possibly make mistakes.
I knew in my heart that this is where my children needed to be since the day I first set foot in there. I have surely not been disappointed."

"We had chapel in the gymnasium weekly (if I remember correctly). After one of the chapel services I gathered with a group of students and a teacher in a corner of the gym and we prayed together. During that prayer the teacher said that if anyone had not accepted Jesus Christ that if we asked Him into our heart we would be saved. On that day I asked Jesus into my heart – I still remember the incredible, wonderful, loving forgiveness I felt. It was REAL! And, something changed.
I am now 48 years old, have 8 children (4 boys and 4 girls) ages 8 to 23 and an amazing wife. We are ALL born again and serving the Lord Jesus Christ; and I can honestly say that I don’t believe I would be where I am today if I had not given my life to Jesus at TC all those years ago.
I am so grateful for Timothy Christian – God used it to change the entire course of my life!"
