Our Pre-K program is the entry grade to St. Timothy’s. Pre-K students are expected to attend for duration of the school day, 5 days a week, which will build the foundation for the journey of learning as a Titan.
Students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade may register for our After School Care program.
No schedule decisions have been made for the 2021-22 school year.
We are offering on-campus learning as well as distance learning options for our students. For more information, please review our Learning Plan for 2020.
St. Timothy’s School is committed to high-quality instruction. We incorporate research-based, best practices into our daily instruction to help all of our students succeed. We continue to focus on differentiated instruction within the classroom to meet the learning needs and styles of our students. In addition to differentiation in the classroom, St. Timothy’s School has a Lower School and a Middle School Learning Specialist available to support students, families, and teachers. Our learning specialists review academic data, including educational evaluations and standardized testing, and work closely with teachers, administrators, and parents to monitor student performance in an effort to maximize academic potential. Instructional strategies and/or accommodations for students may be implemented on a case-by-case basis.
In Lower School, we are able to meet student needs through our small-group, individualized instruction within the regular classroom.
In Middle School, in order for accommodations to be considered for students, we require a current educational evaluation (within 3 years) that indicates academic need for support (below average scores) and evidence from the classroom which also supports the need for recommended accommodations.
Are teachers available for academic assistance?
Every teacher at St. Timothy's School is committed to helping students reach their academic potential. Our Lower School teachers are available throughout the year for parent conferences (by appointment only) to discuss ways both the parent and the teacher can help the student reach his or her potential in the classroom.
Middle School students have regularly scheduled Study Hall sessions rotated into their schedules. During this time, students are allowed to work on homework assignments and projects, and may seek out a specific teacher for extra assistance. After-school sessions are offered at least twice a week by every Middle School teacher. If additional help is needed, students may also contact a particular teacher to request an extra help session.
