About St. Timothy’s School
Founded in 1958, St. Timothy’s School educates students through the everyday moments, big and small–instilling the knowledge, skills, and values to lead successful, purposeful lives. St. Timothy’s School may look a bit different from when we started with our first class of 16 students, but our commitment to nurturing young learners has not changed. Thanks to the support of our close-knit community of teachers, parents, alumni, and friends, we have grown and now serve more than 550 students from pre-kindergarten to eighth grade.
Our Episcopal School Identity
St. Timothy’s is an inclusive Christian school where children and families of any and all faiths are equally welcomed and valued. We embrace both faith and reason in pursuit of truth and meaning–offering the strongest academic and intellectual foundations in science, math, literature, history, languages, and the arts, while also exploring lifelong questions of faith, existence, and purpose. We worship and pray together in regular chapel services, and our middle school Religious Studies classes examine Christianity and other world religions from an academic perspective. We respect families’ personal choices on matters of faith, and we teach our students that loving and serving others is an essential part of everyone’s calling.

St. Timothy’s School accepts students who range in age from four to fourteen and desire a diverse curriculum that balances academics, arts, and social and emotional development. We strive to prepare our students for every aspect of the world outside of St. Timothy’s. When they graduate, St. Timothy’s alumni have the strongest foundations to leave a positive impact on the world around them.

Technology at St. Timothy’s School
To supplement our expansive curriculum and stay up-to-date with an increasingly technological world, St. Timothy’s School offers the latest technology to support our students and staff. From SmartBoards in every classroom to robotics and programming activities in our Imagination Lab, our interactive classroom technology immerses students in their subjects and helps teachers introduce creative and engaging lessons. Classroom sets of iPads in pre-kindergarten through second grade allow children to get comfortable using technology as they learn. Students progress to classroom sets of Chromebooks in third and fourth grade so they can practice typing and presentation skills in a more independent environment. Beginning in fifth grade, all middle school students receive their own personal Chromebook to develop research and study skills in their classes and promote independence and responsibility.
