Academics

Curriculum

At St. Timothy’s, learning is inquiry-based, revolving around questions, which, you’ll come to see, are often more powerful than answers. You aren’t handed ideas that you can then repeat at test time – you’re involved in the process of discovering things on your own. In our integrated curriculum, subjects connect to each other and to what’s happening in the world around you. Teachers are your guides, and they keep the classroom active, engaging, and fun.

Arts

If you bring talent and years of experience in the visual arts with you to St. Timothy’s, the school offers abundant opportunities for you to build on them, and your teachers will push you to achieve your creative best. And if you come to St. Timothy’s with the idea that art isn’t really your thing, well, you might feel differently by the time you graduate. The curriculum is designed to bring out artistic abilities you may not even be aware you have.

Winterim

Unlike most school learning you’re accustomed to, with Winterim you’re not handed a curriculum to follow – you design the learning experience. Each year there’s an overarching theme to explore, but the path you take to explore it and the experiences you have along the way are things you, your classmates, and your teachers will work out together. This means taking ownership of your own learning, tailoring it to meet your needs, match your desires, and fulfill your passions.

Athletics

Facilities and Fields


St. Timothy's state-of-the-art outdoor athletic complex includes the Grass Family Foundation Field -- a synthetic turf field that is a FIFA II/quality sythetic field with 100% organic infill. Dedicated in 2012, the turf field is one of the first of its kind to be installed at a U.S. school. It is the site of our field hockey, soccer and lacrosse games. In addition, the outdoor complex includes the six recently resurfaced Harvey-Welles tennis courts, and the Ireland Field, a multi-sport grass field for softball and soccer games.

The Alice Ingram Hooker '51 Athletic Center features two regulation-size cross-basketball courts, a fitness center, meeting room, training room, and fully furnished locker rooms for home and visiting teams. The fitness center is equipped with LifeFitness cardio and weight training equipment, including treadmills, ellipticals, rowing machines and bikes, as well as a full complement of weight machines and free weights. The fitness center is fully wired and includes a stereo and television.
St. Timothy's equestrian facilities are equally impressive.

The Hamilton-Ireland Equestrian Arena houses twenty-eight 12' x 12' stalls, two tack rooms and a heated wash stall. The 150' x 280' outdoor riding ring features brand new sand fiber footing. The facilities also include a 80' x 200' indoor ring, four private paddocks, and seven large fields, three of them with run-in sheds.

Student Life

The Student Life curriculum at St. Timothy’s has some ambitious goals. It aims to help you to develop strength of character and personal integrity, to show kindness and compassion for others, to learn how to be an effective leader, and to find ways to make the world a better place. With goals this important, we make sure we approach student life with every bit as much thought and care and attention as we approach the academic curriculum.

Giving

Gifts to St. Timothy's School honor a trust that has been given to everyone who has benefited from her embrace. By giving back, you celebrate this sacred place that gives so many the precious opportunity to appreciate solitude and to cherish the life of the mind. It was at St. Timothy's that the values animating the civil rights movement, the women’s movement and the peace movement took shape for many. Somehow, the confidence exhibited in so many alumnae was nurtured here and the notion that through informed reflection and applied energy, the world could change, and that each of her graduates might make a small difference.
