Saint Luke School offers a comprehensive curriculum to students in kindergarten through grade eight committed to fully developing the capabilities of each child in a challenging, stimulating environment that emphasizes the mastery of basic skills.
Primary Grades (K-5)
All primary grades are self-contained classrooms, but the students receive regular, specialized instruction in French, Spanish, art, computer, library, music and physical education. The reading program utilizes phonics and spelling instruction in thematic units relating to the core subjects of science, math, social studies, language arts, and religion. Study skills are introduced in fourth and fifth grade.
Middle School (6-8)
Grades 6-8 are departmentalized, with specialists teaching social studies, math, science, and language arts. Critical thinking skills, such as note-taking, outlining, and time management are particularly emphasized and integrated into the curriculum. Students who meet the requirements established by the Diocese are eligible to take pre-algebra in the seventh grade, and algebra in the eighth grade. Algebra students take placement tests at their high school of choice in May or June. Students not taking Algebra I follow the alternate track of taking Introduction to Pre-Algebra followed by Algebra IA. Graduating students may exercise the option of taking either the National French Exam or the National Spanish Exam or the placement tests administered by the high school of their choice to receive credit for high school level I and place into high school level II.
