St. Luke School has high expectations for its students. Our students are accepted based on the belief that they are able to handle a strong academic curriculum. We employ several assessment tools that are used to monitor individual student performance as well as collective data. Those assessment tools include the ITBS in grades 1-8, and Renaissance Learning STAR Reading and STAR Math. Data collected from these tools is ultimately used to evaluate programmatic needs. Our students regularly score one to two grade levels above placement on all of these tests. Student achievement on these tests is reviewed at our annual staff retreat, and is highly effective both in pinpointing strengths and in determining areas for growth.
St. Luke School uses a variety of resources to support the SLS curriculum perspective. Our curriculum is based on age appropriate activities as well as opportunities for authentic individual and group learning projects. The curriculum was also developed to meet individual student needs. A complete copy of our curiculum is available in both Media Centers for review.

St. Luke School students have been recognized for their strong academics and character through the National Junior Honor Society, Geography Bee, Spelling Bee, Math Team Contests, Science Fair, National History Day and various essay contests. Students enjoy classes in art, music, PE, Spanish, drama (4-5 and 7/8), speech (6), computer applications (6), yearbook (7/8), broadcast (7/8), and geometry (8). Our students’ music and drama skills are further enriched with our annual spring musical performance. In addition, St. Luke offers a broad range of co-curricular activities for student enrichment. Students participating in these activities have the opportunity to work with teachers outside the academic setting and have fun doing something they enjoy. Some of the co-curricular activities offered include Elementary and Middle School Math Teams, National Junior Honor Society, Praise Band, Recycling Team, SLS Ambassadors, Student Council and Velocity.
St. Luke also offers a full interscholastic sports program for students in grades 5-8. Sports offered include cross country, cheerleading, dance, girls and boys basketball, volleyball, golf, tennis, girls and boys soccer, baseball and softball.
