St. Timothy 2016 492

Our family has truly found a home at St. Timothy Catholic School. The teachers are amazing. Not only are they challenging our kids academically but they are also developing them socially and morally. The staff and administration are hands down the best we've ever experienced. They are caring, kind, and truly do everything with the best interest of the children. Where else can you go and have a principal high five you when walking in? Or stop by your car at carpool to tell you what a great job your child did. St. Tim's is a true gem and we are so grateful to have our children enrolled in the school!

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Catholic Schools

Expand / Collapse All

Do I or my child have to be Catholic in order to attend a Catholic school?

Catholic Schools warmly welcome students regardless of parish or religious faith. Our schools are communities rich with religious backgrounds and practices. Students study the Scriptures and the Tradition of the Catholic faith, participate in Catholic liturgies and, if Catholic, are prepared to receive the Sacraments. Non‐Catholic students are expected to participate in liturgies, religious functions, and religion classes that are part of the academic curriculum. While non‐Catholic students are expected to be knowledgeable about Catholic teachings and practices, they are not expected to give their assent to the Faith. 

Are the Catholic schools of the Diocese of Arlington accredited?

The Virginia Catholic Education Association accredits each school and every teacher meets the VCEA or Commonwealth of Virginia certification requirements. 

How can I find out more about Catholic schools in my area?

You may obtain information on any of our Catholic schools by visiting the Schools Directory.

My family is relocating to the area, how do I determine which parish/school my family belongs to?

Visit the parish finder to locate parishes near your new home. Call the parish to see if your new home falls in parish boundaries and if the parish has a school.

What is a Blue Ribbon School? Does this mean that the Blue Ribbon Schools are better than the other schools?

Blue Ribbon Schools are those schools that have been nationally recognized for their excellence by the U.S. Department of Education.  This in no way indicates that our other schools are academically inferior as there are many requirements to attain the Blue Ribbon Award. Follow the link to learn more about the Blue Ribbon Program.
