Many leadership opportunities are available to our students.
Students in fourth through eighth grades have the opportunity to run for the St. Timothy's School Student Council. Those students chosen by their homerooms are given the priviledge of serving a one-year position on the Student Council. Members act as liaisons to their homerooms and have many opportunities to practice leadership skills and serve our community throughout the year.
National Junior Honor Society
The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) chapter at St. Timothy's School is open to rising 8th grade students. NJHS students regularly provide service to the school community and assist at various school-sponsored events.
Students will become eligible for NJHS admission at the end of their 7th grade year. Students who have a scholastic average of 93.5 or above in all subjects will be alerted to their eligibility and given the opportunity to apply for NJHS membership. Specific application requirements will reflect the basic tenets of the NJHS, including scholarship, character, leadership, service, and citizenship. Final selection is determined by a faculty council.
Biggles & Littles and Study Buddies
Our Biggles & Littles program pairs a fourth grader with a kindergartener and our Study Buddies program matches a fifth grader with a first grader. Monthly sessions allow the older student to lead the younger student in an engaging activity planned by the teachers. These programs are extremely popular and give all the students an opportunity to feel connected with students from other grades.
We have a vibrant and active Boy Scouts of America program that meets weekly on campus. St. Timothy's School has sponsored Pack 334 since 1997. Cub Scouts is for boys between 6 and 11 years of age entering first through fifth grades. It is a skills-based program that fosters citizenship, friendship, and community service. Cub Scouts enjoy camping, hiking, whittling, and many other outdoor activities. Meetings are held on Thursday evenings throughout the year.
From fifth grade to age 18, boys are eligible to join Troop 334 and become a Boy Scout. The Boy Scout program uses camping, adventure opportunities, training in life skills, and an extensive merit badge program to instill the values of the Scout Law and the Scout Oath. Our Boy Scouts learn cooperation, service, maturity and leadership. Weekly meetings are held at St. Timothy’s on Monday evenings throughout the school year, and we attend a week-long BSA camp every summer.
