Growth and Expansion

The opening paragraph of the St. Luke’s School mission ends with this phrase: “… we also seek to do something more.” The phrase is simple and profound. It defines St. Luke’s School as a place that enrolls students but builds a community of families, that challenges the mind and nurtures the spirit, that is intentionally small but impactful beyond our West Village footprint. It is in this spirit that St. Luke’s School developed its strategic vision and embarks upon a new phase of growth and change.

In 2011, St. Luke’s School articulated our ambitious dreams in our Strategic Plan. As we continue to achieve milestones in the history of the School, these dreams are well within our reach—creating a St. Luke’s School which will honor our strength, embrace the future, and be financially sustainable for generations of students to come while honoring and protecting the values and characteristics that have served us in good stead for so many years.

We are and always have been a small school that dreams big. 

Of all remained three things:
           The certainty
                       That we are always beginning...
           The certainty
                       That we need to continue...
           The certainty
                       That we will be interrupted before finishing...
Therefore we must make:
           Of the interruption,
                       A new path...
           Of the fall,
                       A dance step...
           Of the fear,
                       A ladder...
           Of the dream,
                       A bridge...
           Of the need,
                       An encounter...
