St Timothy's School is an Anglican all-girls boarding and day college-preparatory school for students in grades 9-12. The school was founded in 1882 and is located in Stevenson, Maryland, 15 minutes from the center of Baltimore, one hour from Washington DC and three hours from New York City. The curriculum for students in grades 9 and 10 utilizes the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) program offered by the University of Cambridge. The school is authorized to offer the IB Diploma. The curriculum is designed to reinforce the values of international mindedness.
The campus has twenty-three buildings, including a Performing Arts Center with a 350-seat theater, a dance studio, and practice rooms with pianos. The Ella R Watkins Library has more than 22,000 volumes and computerized catalog search capabilities that link the school with the public and university library systems. Other facilities include a Visual Arts Center and three science labs for biology, chemistry, and physics. The entire campus is networked, and St Tim's integrates computer use in its curriculum. There are computer labs in both dorms as well as the academic building. The student-computer ratio is 2:1, and all campus computers were upgraded or replaced in 2005.
Approximately 60 percent of this year's students are boarders. Students room together by class. In 2005, both dorms were fully renovated. Faculty members live in each dormitory, and each dormitory has both formal and informal living rooms. There is a fully equipped health center and a registered nurse on call at all times. In addition, there are 18 faculty houses on campus.
A state-of-the-art athletic complex opened in the spring of 2003. It includes a basketball gymnasium, fitness center, training room and a classroom.
All girls participate in the athletic program each season. The year is divided into three seasons for sports, and girls are required to join a team sport for at least one season each year. In the fall term, field hockey, tennis, and volleyball are offered. In the winter, girls may choose basketball, ice hockey, indoor soccer, or squash; in the spring, lacrosse and softball are available. Horseback riding and dance are offered year-round.
The athletic facilities include playing fields for soccer, lacrosse, and field hockey; six all-weather tennis courts; an outdoor recreational swimming pool; and nature and cross-country jogging trails. The Hamilton-Ireland Riding Center has full facilities along with both indoor and outdoor arenas. Students enjoy the city's cultural activities, museums, theaters, historic sites, and research facilities. Washington and Baltimore serve as an extension of the campus.
