Founded in 1945, St. Luke's School opened with two teachers and 19 students in four grades, holding classes in the Parish House. Independent from the Church as of 2012, St. Luke's School has expanded its student body to two classes per grade, with the exception of a single section of Junior Kindergarten.

Dance allows children to learn to express their emotions and become aware of themselves and others through creative movement and improvisation. As students mature, they collaborate as they learn choreographed sequences.

Our state-of-the-art gymnasium.

Participation in athletics is an integral part of the student's life at St. Luke's. Our gym which opened in 2017 has given our athletes room to run, an opportunity to operate as a team, and a place to hone their leadership skills. When not serving as home court, the gym hosts school-wide assemblies and the Lower School gathering called Mentions.

Our athletes compete against other New York City independent schools on soccer and softball fields around the city, including Pier 40 and JJ Walker Park. During the 20-21 school year, we will also pursue these alternatives to provide more time for our students outside.   

Students sit in the chapel.

Chapel is a special time set aside for all members of the school community to gather in the church for prayer, song, reflection, and celebration. Students participate in a quiet and respectful way; some find it a time to renew or develop their own religious life while others use it an an opportunity for quiet contemplation.

Upper School students learn in the science lab.

Lower School students learn in class.

Students listen, learn, and engage in our classrooms. Their teachers inspire confidence in their students across the subjects, serving as a partner as the child masters skills and concepts. Through this hands-on learning approach, students become more comfortable in their own learning experience, and curiosity for the world begins.
