St. Timothy's School
5.00 (2 reviews)
Our Lower School provides the foundation. Children have the opportunity to be challenged and loved, and to excel in ways that fit their own unique development.
Middle School students (5th-8th grade) receive their own Chromebook for use at school and at home. Students regularly use this technology both in the classroom and at home, from collaborating and creating documents on Google Docs to submitting answers on Kahoot to taking on structured project research.
After School Care program at St. Timothy's is available until 6:00 p.m. daily. Students have the opportunity to do homework as well as to participate in organized and supervised games and activities.
St. Timothy's School, a member of the Capital Area Middle School Conference (CAMSC), fields 16 competitive sports teams: varsity and JV soccer (boys and girls), varsity and JV basketball (boys and girls), cross country (boys and girls), track (boys and girls), tennis (boys and girls), boys baseball, golf (co-ed), girls varsity and JV volleyball, and girls softball.
One of the oldest and most beloved traditions at STS is the annual Christmas pageant, held every year since the school's founding in 1958.
Our band program offers several different levels for students in grades 3 - 8 including Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Beginning Band, Flute Ensemble, and Percussion Ensemble. We also offer an active middle school chorus program throughout the year.
St. Timothy's School weaves service opportunities into our schedules and our curriculum, as our students strive to make a positive difference for a variety of communities. We believe our pre-kindergarten through eighth grade model is uniquely effective in preparing students to meet the challenges of the future, and service learning is an essential piece of that preparation.
- St. Timothy`s School is an Episcopal preparatory school, grades pre-K to 8.
- With exceptional academics and a close-knit community of teachers and families, we stay small enough for each child to be known, loved and nurtured individually - so their true gifts can be identified and developed.
- We emphasize character development, teaching students to think beyond themselves and preparing them for high school - and a meaningful life of purpose and impact.

At St. Timothy`s School, we believe that from their earliest years of schooling through early adolescence, children are forming the skills and attitudes that will drive all future academic achievement and social development. They must be engaged, challenged, nurtured, and loved.St. Timothy`s School is an Episcopal preparatory school for pre-kindergarten through eighth grade committed to building the strongest foundations to guide our students in successful lifelong journeys. We offer exceptional academic experiences and enriching opportunities for growth in a close-knit community of dedicated teachers and supportive families. We blend Episcopal school traditions with academic excellence in an environment that inspires the imagination, fosters creativity, and promotes a love of learning.
- Our children are loved. For us, teaching is personal. Our teachers refer to students as "my children" or "my kids." We offer a nurturing environment that helps our children grow to be good people, not just good students.
- Our children are prepared. Ending in eighth grade means we must prepare students for public or private high schools, for Honors, AP or IB programs, and for Common Core or traditional curriculums.
- Our children are known. In a rapidly growing region, we have been - and will always remain - intentionally small enough to personally know each of our children and families.

We have had 3 children attend St. Timothy's collectively over the last 15 years and have been extremely happy with every aspect of this school. They provide a top notch education with state of the art technology, in a very nurturing environment with plenty of opportunities for parent involvement. Each one of my children were well prepared for High School not only academically (they were several levels ahead in all subjects) but also emotionally, physically and spiritually. Sending my kids to St. Timothy's School from K-8th was one of the best parenting decisions I've made!

I cannot say enough good things about this school. My daughters have gone to St. Timothy's since Kindergarten and love it there. They are far ahead of their friends academically that go to public school. I suggest visiting the school because as soon as you walk in the door you will know what a child-centered environment St. Timothy's is.

There are a lot of misconceptions about private schools. This is probably because private schools are indeed private.
