Academic

Academic support is available to all students and includes twice-weekly ‘Office Hours’, enabling students to meet with teachers for support. Homework study hall is available before school in addition to peer tutoring for help in specific classes.

Timothy’s academic support program provides assistance to students who have documented learning disabilities. We offer support and accountability as well as promoting a personal link between the student and the classroom teacher. We work with individual students and parents to create a personalized plan to provide necessary accommodations.

College and Career

The counseling department hosts college planning workshops, conducts class presentations that take students through career interest inventories, and schedules individual student meetings beginning in the student’s freshman year. All high school students have an Naviance account which is a web-based college and career planning platform to create college lists and search for careers.
