What high school will my child attend?

Your choice of high school reflects the evolving needs, interests, and personal preferences of your child and family. Our eighth grade graduates thrive and excel at a wide range of high schools. Each year we have students enroll in local private schools as well as public high schools, including magnet high schools and Raleigh's nationally-recognized charter high school. A few students from each eighth grade graduating class choose boarding schools for high school. The important thing to remember is that St. Timothy’s students are prepared for the rigors and workload of the high school of their choice.

Why not an STS High School?
