General School Mission

"The Mission of St. Timothy's Episcopal School is to offer a rigorous academic education in a nurturing environment fostering in equal measure the disciplines of intellect and the formation of personal character. Strong teaching, daily Chapel, attention to individual students, and an emphasis on Christian Ethics in community life are essential aspects of our methodology. We are committed to diversity in our student body and pledged to the strengths of tolerance, mutual respect and broadmindedness as expressed in the Anglican religious tradition.
