School Notes

  • At St. Luke School, we believe that there are no standardized children and as a result, our robust and flexible curriculum is tailored to create a student experience that is second to none. We operate on the core belief that parents are the primary educators of their children, and it is our honor to partner with them.
  • Our excellent faculty and staff are focused on providing each student with the tools, challenges, and the nurturing needed to succeed both academically and spiritually.  Students have opportunities to develop, participate, and contribute at every grade level through extra-curricular offerings, athletics, and fine arts.  St. Luke students are servant leaders who are focused on giving back through supporting local missions and serving our neighbors.  We currently serve 425 families and nearly 600 children each day.
