School Notes:

  • The school’s residential structure enables faculty to support students in their personal, social, and intellectual development. Boarding and day students – as well as our parents, alumnae, and friends – appreciate the individual attention, the community atmosphere, the spiritual richness, and the high standards that characterize the St. Timothy’s experience. The academic program fosters excellence in all disciplines within the liberal arts tradition.  Faculty members guide students in mastering skills, acquiring knowledge, and thinking critically, creatively and independently. The School strives to help girls achieve their potential not only intellectually, but also artistically, athletically, and morally, so that they may lead responsible and fulfilling lives.St. Timothy’s School is committed to establishing a community that encourages people of diverse backgrounds and beliefs to understand and respect one another and to be sensitive to differences. In its programs, the School seeks to promote a balance of leadership, cooperation, and service, together with a deeper awareness of the global community and the natural world.  Each member of our tight-knit community – students, faculty, and staff alike – has special talents and gifts that help fulfill the mission of the School.
