St. Timothy's School (K-8)



St. Timothy's School is a vibrant Catholic institution staffed by fully certified teachers and is committed to Catholic teaching and academic excellence.

What a blessing it is to have such a good, faithful, and thriving Catholic school right here in Maple Lake.  Our children are the future of our Church and the world.  Jesus reminded his disciples that the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.  It is easy to understand what he meant when one is in the presence of our youth.  Their joy, love, and faith are living examples of the Gospel.  At Saint Timothy’s we stress that our students are valued because they are loved and because they are created in the image and likeness of God.  They learn to treat others with that same love and respect and they learn Gospel values and virtues.  Our children receive a great education from excellent educators, an education that develops the whole person – body, mind, and spirit.  We are blessed to have faith-filled, highly skilled teachers and volunteers who teach our children the knowledge, skills, and virtues necessary to develop their God-given gifts and talents.
