Head's Message

Seeking truth.
(Without fear.)
St. Timothy’s is best understood by how our students are known: as self-possessed young women of intellectual curiosity, expansive worldview, and a strong-but-empathetic mindset.

Studying in the globally respected International Baccalaureate program, they are comfortable with rigor. Spirited conversations unfold around intimate seminar tables and cutting-edge innovation labs. Learning continues in the world’s great cultural institutions, policy centers, and historic sites—hands-on experiences that add invaluable context to IB studies.

Intellectual challenge is met by resounding support. Devoted teachers understand and respond to students’ individual talents and learning styles. Fellow girls applaud and encourage each other as they embark on new adventures. It is our steadfast belief that the best learning emerges from the strongest relationships.

Balancing mind, body, and spirit, our student life curriculum builds an unshakable foundation for self-esteem and wellness. Spirited athletic competition, a vibrant arts scene, a joyful residential life, and a general atmosphere of encouragement and trust all strengthen bonds of sisterhood that last a lifetime.

Having come of age in our culture of curiosity and self-discovery, St. Timothy’s girls are comfortable, creative, and fearless in their pursuit of knowledge. They are known and respected by the nation’s finest colleges and universities as independent-minded problem solvers who bring energy and optimism to an ever-changing world.

Our cherished motto, Verite Sans Peur (Truth Without Fear), underscores the essential relationship between depth of knowledge and strength of confidence. Because St. Timothy’s girls are so thoughtfully educated, they leave here prepared to lead lives of extraordinary courage and uncommon impact.

Thank you for your interest in St. Timothy’s. Please let me know how I can be of assistance as you continue your discovery of this special place.
