St. Timothy's School is a four-year private all-girls boarding high school in Stevenson, Maryland.
The school was founded as a school for girls by Sarah Randolph Carter in Catonsville, Maryland in 1882. In 1952, the school moved to Stevenson, Maryland. In 1972, Hannah More Academy merged into St. Timothy's School. The school is run under the guidance of the Episcopal Church, and offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.
The school supports several sports programs including lacrosse, golf, tennis, dance, softball, field hockey, indoor soccer, volleyball, horse riding, ice hockey, soccer, squash and badminton. The school competes in the Interscholastic Athletic Association (IAAM). In 2004-2005, the school won the Division C Championship in field hockey and basketball.
The school is also known for its annual intramural basketball game, a tradition that began in the 1890s when co-headmistresses Polly and Sally Carter were looking for an activity to keep boarders busy during the Thanksgiving break. They divided up the girls into two teams named "Brownie" and "Spider". The game has been played each year according to the original three-court rules, with players wearing 19th-century tunics.
