Cultivating conscience, compassion

and all that is good

Chatting and joking with one another, St. Timothy’s students work in an assembly line to make sandwiches and pack them into paper bags with snacks and drinks.

Preparing lunches for a homeless shelter probably doesn’t rank high on most thirteen-year-olds’ list of preferred afterschool activities. But St. Timothy’s students volunteer to help out every month without fail.

Younger children take part in service activities like bringing a toothbrush for the Tooth Fairy Tree (which is donated to a local charity).

How many people can you help feed in an hour?


A group of older students invented “Rake and Run”—anonymously raking a neighbor’s leaves and then dashing away. Some shave their heads each year for a children’s cancer foundation. It’s never been necessary to require a certain number of volunteer hours in order to engage our students in community service.

At St. Timothy’s we talk about being “upstanders”—not just knowing the right thing to do, but taking action. You might see a second grader invite a classmate sitting by herself to join a game of tag. Teachers don’t just talk about Christian values; they model kindness, respect and thankfulness.

Integrity and compassion become a part of every student’s identity. Wholehearted and thoughtful, they are already finding ways to make the world a kinder place.

Alumni find meaningful ways to make a difference.
