An affinity group is a group of people linked by common interests, backgrounds, ideology, or experiences and who gather to support each other. At St. Luke’s, student and parent groups provide supportive spaces for underrepresented groups, playing an important role in ensuring an inclusive community where all are valued, included and empowered to succeed.
A Note on Student Groups:
We have two student affinity groups at St. Luke's School. We are in the process of refining and reengaging these student groups in order to better serve our students.
- The Student of Color Affinity Group (SOC) is a student-led group which provides opportunities for workshops, discussions and events reflecting the unique concerns and needs of its student members. More importantly, it is a space where students of color are free to share and affirm experiences, building connections and a stronger sense of self. Students in Grade 6 - 8 are welcome to participate.
- The LGBTQ Student Allies Affinity Group (Rainbow Allies) is a group open to students in Grade 6 - 8 facilitated by the Director of Diversity and two faculty members. Students meet to learn about sexual identity, gender identity, and some of the issues that surround them. All students of this age range are welcome, including allies.
Stay tuned for details about these affinity groups as they develop.
