St Luke School

Tel: (718)585-0380
  • St. Luke's offers a balanced and challenging curriculum that serves intellectually curious and able students in a small, intimate learning environment.
  • Located on a two acre landmark block in the West Village, the School has spacious outdoor facilities and large, sunny classrooms.
  • At St. Luke's, we seek to give our students a sound cognitive foundation for their lives and prepare them for admission to and continuing success in future schools.
  • As an Episcopal Church School, we also seek to do something more.
  • St. Luke's is a small school, deliberately. Its size enables us to focus on each child as an individual.
  • Its size also allows everyone to know everyone else. It fosters a feeling of family -- a supportive climate of trust and understanding, communicating values and building community.
  • In this environment, children form positive relationships with classmates and teachers, with older children and with younger ones.
  • St. Luke's is coeducational and heterogeneous. Its students and faculty come from a variety of backgrounds -- racial, ethnic, economic, religious.
  • We value and actively encourage this mutually enriching diversity. It is part of the process of helping each child discover his or her own uniqueness and infinite worth as a human being- and at the same time, that of others.
  • St. Luke's is a traditional school, in that it has a strong academic curriculum, high standards, clear and consistent boundaries and expectations.
  • Within that structure, we emphasize freedom. We use varied educational approaches and techniques to help stimulate independent thinking- to free the children to question, challenge, explore, and pursue truth wherever it leads.
  • We encourage them to express their imagination and creative powers, in science and mathematics as well as in words, music, and art.
  • Interdisciplinary teaching allows content from one subject area to reinforce another and open up fresh insights.
  • Above all, St. Luke's seeks to awaken in children a lifelong love of learning, a sense of joy and wonder at God's universe, and a deep feeling of connection to the natural world.
  • We hope that whatever they go on to do and be, we will have prepared them to be good stewards of the world's resources -- responsible, caring members of one global human community.
