St. Timothy's School is an Episcopal preparatory school committed to educational excellence and the emotional, physical, and spiritual growth of children in an environment where traditional Christian values are emphasized.
2019-2025 Strategic Plan
The St. Timothy’s School Board of Trustees and school leaders conduct a comprehensive strategic planning process every 4-6 years. Such a process ensures that we remain true to our mission and foundations while still being mindful about the future and identifying opportunities for improvement, growth, and innovation. The 2019-2025 Strategic Plan is both an ambitious and achievable plan for the school’s next 4-6 years and is informed by all in our community.
In 1958, the vestry of St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church founded St. Timothy’s School at the request of its rector, Father George B.S. Hale. Sixteen children enrolled in the first kindergarten class, taught by Mrs. Carolyn Hale. The school added new grades and students each year, surpassing 400 students in elementary and middle school grades within its first decade.
Throughout our history, St. Timothy’s School has been committed to three principles established by Father Hale in the formative years: strong preparatory academics, a close-knit community where each child is known, and an Episcopal foundation. Maintaining these traditions, while embracing innovation, has allowed St. Timothy’s School to remain a vibrant choice for parents in the Raleigh area for over half of a century.
