  • Step 3: Testing

    St. Timothy's School understands that the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact students across the world. Due to that, during the 2020-2021 admission cycle we will allow students to apply without needing to submit standardized test scores (SSAT or ISEE). 

    We will continue to accept SSAT and ISEE exams scores for those who wish submit. SSAT registration information is available at www.ssat.org (St.Timothy’s school code 6994); registration for the ISEE may be found at www.erblearn.org (St. Timothy’s school code 210990).

    Candidates for grades 11 and 12 may also submit the results of the PSAT, SAT, or ACT in lieu of the SSAT or ISEE.

    Students for whom English is a second language are required to take the TOEFL or TOEFL Jr. (Test of English as a Foreign Language; www.ets.org, St. Timothy’s code 8143) in addition to the SSAT. Please contact the Admissions Office if the TOEFL is not available in your area.
  • Step 4: Recommendations

    Recommendations are required from the following: your current English teacher, math teacher, and principal, advisor, or guidance counselor. There is also an optional form for applicants who would like to ask a favorite teacher for a recommendation.
  • Step 5: Transcripts

    Please submit transcripts from the current school year as well as the previous two school years. If you have changed schools, please send transcripts from all institutions.
  • Step 6: Character Skills Snapshot

    Character and personal growth are an integral part of a St. Timothy's education. Grades and test scores just don't tell us the whole story of your child. The Character Skills Snapshot gives us richer holistic information and illuminates areas where St. Timothy's can help your child grow. 

    While the Character Skills Snapshot is currently optional we do recommend all applicants take it. For students who take the SSAT, there is no charge to take The Snapshot. Once you register for the SSAT, you will have access to The Snapshot. 

    Students without the SSAT will need to contact St. Timothy's Admissions Office in order to gain access to The Snapshot. There is a $25 fee. Fee waivers are available for those in need. Please contact Jennifer Shelley, Director of Financial Aid, at jshelley@stt.org, to request. 
  • Step 7: Financial Aid
