Welcome to St. Luke School!
St. Luke School began in 1961 in Bishop Ford Hall under the direction of the Sisters of Notre Dame of Covington. Work began on the school building we know today in 1965 and it was dedicated in January of 1966. The first addition was added in October of 1971 and included the library, science lab, and the multipurpose room (otherwise known as the gym). Enrollment continued to climb and the second addition was added in 1990. In this phase the Parish Social Center, five classrooms, a conference room, and a computer lab were added. The building also became handicap accessible with the installation of an elevator. St. Luke School has long been known for excellence in preparing students religiously as well as academically.
St. Luke the Evangelist School, in collaboration with the family, St. Luke Parish, and the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, is committed to helping each child grow in awareness of God, others, and self by providing quality religious and academic experiences. We provide a Christ-centered environment designed to nurture talents and to prepare our students to be self-motivated, lifelong learners who live the message and ministry of the Roman Catholic Church.
1. We believe that the intent of Catholic education is to provide our students with a unique academic environment in which Christian values permeate all subject areas, providing them with a strong spiritual and academic foundation.
2. We believe that learning is a student-centered, collaborative effort between parents, teachers, and the community. Each student is challenged and nurtured to reach their full individual potential through techniques that accommodate diverse styles of learning.
3. We believe that the role of our academic curriculum should be balanced to include art, music, physical fitness, and technology so that each individual's talents are recognized and nourished and seen as significant to the building of the Kingdom of God.
4. We believe in continuous self-reflection regarding our academic effectiveness and our commitment to living the message and ministry of the Catholic Church.
5. We believe in collaboration and communication among teachers, families, and students to prepare students to be active, contributing members of the Catholic Church and the community.
6. We believe in preparing our students to take their place in society by using their gifts to bring Christ's message of peace, justice, and compassion to their neighborhoods, their communities, and beyond.
7. We believe that faith formation involves living the message of the Gospel, seeking a personal relationship with God, and following the example of our Master Teacher, Jesus.
