About Our School

St. Timothy’s School offers a small, nurturing environment where students learn, grow, and serve alongside each other. Maintaining these traditions, while embracing growth, allows St. Timothy’s School to remain a vibrant choice for parents in Raleigh.

St. Timothy’s School was founded in 1958 by the vestry of St. Timothy’s Church at the request of Father George B.S. Hale. Our first class enrolled 16 kindergarten students taught by Mrs. Carolyn Hale. St. Timothy’s was established with the intention to educate students through both lessons in academics and in everyday moments. Our community continues to serve as a safe educational space for over 550 students from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.
