Mission & Values
Challenging and nurturing Mind, Body, and Spirit, our community inspires students to lead lives of purpose, faith, and integrity.
Our mission is at the heart of everything we do. Through a nurturing and rigorous program, we prepare students for the challenges they will face in high school and life. We have high expectations for our students, and remain committed to supporting them through their journey.
At the core of a St. Luke’s education is the knowledge that each student is a unique child of God. Grounded in the Episcopal School tradition, we welcome students of all faiths, encourage open inquiry, promote service leadership, and value religious education and worship at the center of our Episcopal identity. St. Luke’s Episcopal School is an outreach ministry of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church through the St. Luke’s Board of Trustees and as an institution of St. Luke’s Church, the School is under the pastoral direction of the Rector.
Our PreK 3 through 8th grade program emphasizes the values and responsibilities of being part of a large caring family. As a community, we are dedicated to helping guide students to lead compassionate and responsible lives.
