A St. Timothy’s education reflects the increasingly globalized, interconnected society in which we live, giving students a world perspective in mathematics, the sciences, social sciences, languages, literature, technology and the arts. Students experience a multidisciplinary course of study that prepares them for the ib. In grades 9-10 (Threes and Fours), the curriculum focuses on an interdisciplinary approach where teachers work collaboratively on planning units of study that allow students to draw connections across different subject areas and use that content creatively to resolve real-world problems.

The academic program is organized around six curricular spheres that facilitate students’ academic, social, and personal development: Creativity and Scientific and Technical Innovation; Globalization, Sustainability, Communication, and Collaboration; Critical Thinking, Problem-Solving, and Decision Making; Research and Information Fluency; Citizenship in the Digital Age; and Pursuit and Assessment of Personal Growth.

  • An integrated curriculum – All subjects make connections to the real world. History connects to science. Art links with literature. Learning how ideas work together broadens your ability to think critically and apply knowledge in creative ways.
  • Outstanding college readiness – When you graduate with an IB diploma, colleges and universities take notice. Admissions officers say that applications from IB students are consistently among the very best they receive.
