What Others Are Saying About STCA
Parents of Current Students
I first became acquainted with Dr. Warren at a Twice Blessed meeting at Christ Church about a year before St. Timothy opened. As the parent of an ADHD son, I was always looking for ways to help us cope with learning difficulties and behavior issues. My son attended public school through the third grade. Each year I could see him become more frustrated with homework and falling behind in learning concepts. He had passing grades, but he just wasn’t getting it. Since he wasn’t failing, special education was not even an option. We resorted to tutoring several times a week, but that didn’t even come close to what a small class size with a caring teacher all day could do. When I heard that St. Timothy was opening, I registered my son immediately…he is now in his 4th year at the school. What a blessing it has been to our family. The teachers at the school do marvelous things and instill Christian principles every day. I only wish Dr. Warren had lived to see his dream come true. It truly is the school for hope!
Our son loves going to school, each and every day, and has for the last three years. The small class size, the academic accommodations made for him based on his ever changing needs, social skills being taught and reinforced every day have all really made a hugely positive impact on him and on our family as a whole. He feels successful as a student, even though there are areas where he really struggles academically. He feels empowered and it shows in other areas of his life. As a parent, I feel supported by our son’s teachers, the school administration and the other parents who I have met at the school over the course of the last three years. It is refreshing to be able to talk to other parents who share the same struggles that we do and who understand what our lives are like. St. Timothy Christian Academy has been a huge blessing in our family’s life. We hope to be there for many years to come.
All of you have made such a difference in our son’s life and in our lives. It has been amazing to us to see the growth he has made in such a short period of time. Anything I can do to help keep this school around for many years to come, I am more than willing to do.
Parents of Former Students
St. Timothy Christian Academy has been an important part of our family’s life. Our daughter’s learning differences were not only impacting her school life but also her home and social life. She needed a loving and caring environment where her educational and personal needs could be met. STCA offers an environment with Christian values where students feel welcome, have their individual education needs met; they are valued by the teachers and staff, and they gain a sense of accomplishment. This was evident in our daughter’s experience. Her self-confidence blossomed; she had wonderful friendships and she often randomly said, “I love St. Timothy; it is the best school.” What more could you ask for?
St. Timothy was a safe haven for my son from the turbulent waters of a “traditional” middle school. At St. Timothy he was able to regain his self-confidence and reset his academic course to success. He was supported, encouraged, and challenged all in a faith-based, grace-filled environment.
What STCA means to me…The blessing of looking forward to ministering each day with our staff, spending time developing relationships with parents and students, and experiencing the joy of students discovering and learning…A school where students are welcomed, accepted, loved, and celebrated; a place where we partner with families to help students grow in all aspects of development toward reaching their potential… Always growing, learning, adapting, and creating as a teacher in order to meet students where they are and make learning accessible to all…The eternal significance of investing in the lives of others for the glory of God and His kingdom.
It is exciting to teach in a place that understands students’ needs and really strives to meet those needs in creative, nurturing, and redemptive ways. I have been blessed by the students and staff so much already. God certainly has His hand on STCA.
I truly feel twice blessed to have the opportunity to spend my days learning, loving and growing alongside some of the finest people I know! The STCA family is made up of great educators and wonderful families and children who have come to know who they are and Whose they are. Working at STCA is not a job, it is a ministry; and I feel blessed to have been called to be a part of Dr. Warren’s legacy that was inspired by God.
"For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and self-discipline." — 2 Timothy 1:7
What the kids like most about STCA
Recess, lunch, snack Everything! Writing and drawing Computer Going home early on Fridays! My friends, teachers, and the toys! Math Fun Friday Lunch! The amazing, loving, wonderful teachers I love how we go to chapel and worship God. I like how there are fewer kids in the school which is calm and quiet. What I love about STCA is that I fit in with everybody. Fun field trips and all the friends I have. STCA showed me how to look at things as half-full instead of half-empty. I have real friends here. Ones that won’t leave me behind.
