“SAT scores are only one indicator that Timothy students excel in academics and in everything they set their mind to,” said Dr. James Smock, Head of School at Timothy. “There’s a misconception that Christian Education is a step below, yet God has called us to do everything with excellence for no other reason but for Him. Our academic outcomes are the result of this dedication.”

The strong focus on academics at TCS is evident from the many advanced placement (AP) courses and dual-credit classes, award-winning debate, robotics and computer programming teams, and an emphasis on STEM, critical thinking and collaborative and practical experiences in our curriculum.
