A Sanctuary in the City

Welcome to St. Luke's School, an oasis in the heart of the historic West Village.

Who We Are


St. Luke’s School inspires students to achieve academic depth and become equity-minded citizens.
Whether a child enters our community in Junior Kindergarten or walks through our doors for the first time in Upper School, they graduate in Grade 8 with a strong sense of self, an understanding of their unique purpose within the world around them, and a resilience to take on the challenges ahead.

Rooted in the community standards of dignity, compassion, respect, excellence, and honesty, students create special bonds with our professional staff who are equally committed to these enduring values and their roles as educators in a changing world. Teachers at St. Luke’s are lifelong learners, modeling to their students the ways in which they build expertise in their fields, stretching their own knowledge of the subject areas that they teach. Our integrated curriculum weaves subjects together, bringing a deeper and richer understanding to lessons in every field: as history informs art, art transforms history. We seek to find this intersectionality in all areas of study. Each voice and perspective is valued as a reflection of our Episcopal identity, and we welcome children of all religious, moral, and spiritual traditions to call St. Luke’s School home.

Students watch as their parents grow in their sense of belonging as members of the school community. Our vibrant Parents Association creates unforgettable memories for children and their families throughout the year, and all adults who care for these children are encouraged to volunteer, lead projects of interest, and build long-lasting friendships with one another. 

For seventy-five years, St. Luke’s School has nurtured those within its walls.

The past decade has been one of change as the school has expanded from tiny to small, now educating more children to share a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We are learning together, listening to one another, and looking forward to a brighter, more equitable, future.
