At St. Luke School we recognize that every child is unique and that each student learns in a different way. That's why we don't teach to the middle of the class—we tailor each lesson to the level of the individual student.
Our NEAYC-certified Early Childhood Program provides spiritual, social/emotional and academic growth all through a Catholic-centered education. We offer three-year and four-your-old preschool classes, as well as full and half-day kindergarten programs.
The St. Luke Parish School enrichment program provides students with academically-grounded, hands-on learning situations designed to foster new interests and develop intellectual talents. We know that each student has untapped gifts that are best nurtured by a variety of creative approaches to learning—our enrichment projects work in concert with the high academic standards of our curriculum and extend key concepts and ideas into more complex, interdisciplinary settings often outside the classroom environment.
We offer our students a fully-integrated academic experience that employs the latest technology including a state-of-the art Apple computer lab used by preschool through 8th grade;MacBook laptops for middle school students, and in-classroom computers and Smartboards. We combine technological adeptness alongside the essential building blocks of learning—and we understand that technology is an essential link between the school classroom and the outside world. Technology also allows us to keep parents current with the activities in the classroom, access homework assignments, and track student performance.
The St. Luke Parish School athletic program is open to students in grades 1 through 8, with younger students participating in intramural athletics in our After School Gym program. Students in grades 5 through 8 can participate in year-round organized team sports. And, we offer a wide variety of co-curricular activities to extend learning opportunities into social activities outside the classroom environment—from Green Club to Music to the Young Authors Club, there's something for everyone.
Come and see for yourself what makes St. Luke School—and its students—so unique. Attend our Open House on Sunday January 29, from 10am – 12pm.
