Mission Statement:

Founded in 1882, St. Timothy’s School is a college preparatory boarding and day school, preparing girls to assume positions of leadership with moral focus and courage, intellectual honesty and acumen, and the confidence to act responsibly and ethically in all areas of their lives.

St. Timothy’s instills a passion for learning and is committed to the formation of character, spiritual growth, social responsibility, and a respect for diversity.  Such commitments are the hallmarks of our heritage; they illuminate our motto and guide our lives together.

St. Timothy’s curriculum is based upon the International Baccalaureate (IB) program, which is one of the most rigorous and advanced curricula today for preparing students for the varied challenges they will confront throughout their lives.

St. Timothy’s offers a rich and highly individualized program with superb resources in athletics, arts, clubs, world affairs, and community service, capitalizing on the talents and strengths of each individual student.

St. Timothy’s is affiliated with the Episcopal Church, the fundamental principles of which provide a moral compass for the community. The School welcomes students of all faiths and draws strength from a diversity of beliefs and experiences.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

Since 1882, St. Timothy’s School has been guided by our motto, “Truth Without Fear,” and with integral core values centered on our mission, St. Timothy’s continues to educate young women. This distinctive culture equips young women with the knowledge, confidence, imagination, discipline, and integrity that make them effective leaders and capable citizens.

The primary goals of a St. Timothy’s education are to gain a disciplined mastery of studies and to engender an understanding of oneself and others. Discovery is an integral part of this process. Girls are challenged to embrace intellectual curiosity and discover for themselves a passion and joy in seeking knowledge. A rigorous, internationally focused curriculum enables students to make the connections between their lives and the world beyond our campus. Our interdisciplinary curriculum clearly links the arts to the other academic areas while challenging students to create and explore.

Through the opportunity to compete in a wide variety of sports, our students practice sportsmanship and leadership while gaining valuable self-confidence and discipline. We assert that an all-girls school provides the best environment to develop competent and confident young women. Discussions in small classes allow each girl to participate actively in her own education. The faculty supports, guides, and challenges each young woman as she explores and develops her distinctive talents and gifts. Young women can experience the benefits of leadership opportunities and programs that are integrated within the academic and residential life curricula. Through a singular focus upon the growth of each young woman, St. Timothy’s seeks to provide a setting in which our students are intellectually and emotionally robust, balance work and play, and develop collaborative and competitive skills, gaining the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual stamina to reach their goals.

We celebrate our Episcopal identity as the Diocesan School for Girls in Maryland. Our Episcopal community is inclusive, welcoming and respectful of people of all faiths. Weekly chapel services and community outreach underscore the importance of spirituality, while an honor code encourages students to incorporate personal and academic integrity into their daily lives. We believe that the presence of varied faiths, ethnic origins, and socioeconomic and racial backgrounds in our school creates a vibrant community. Through exposure to different perspectives, girls learn the importance of belonging to a global community.

We know that a boarding school culture has a profound capacity to shape the lives of both our boarding and day students. Our closely-knit community affords opportunities for lasting friendships among peers and affirms interactions among faculty, staff, and students. Our traditions nurture community and connect each generation of graduates with the School. We honor the individual voice while fostering accountability toward others. Students benefit from service opportunities within our school and beyond our campus. As a result, St. Timothy’s students see the positive impact of their involvement, develop a sense of their own worth, and engender a respect for the dignity of others. A valuable education comprises many virtues. The stars on our school shield symbolize the three qualities we honor most: that our young women seek the truth and uphold it, prove worthy of trust, and practice kindness.
