About St. Luke School


St. Luke School is a Catholic institution of learning fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. St. Luke’s, by its very nature and purpose, provides a Catholic atmosphere that nurtures the growth and development of the whole person: intellectually, spiritually, emotionally and physically.

The faculty, in cooperation with the parents, endeavor to correlate moral and spiritual values with the day to day living of the faith life of the child. Daily religious instruction and prayer, together with participation in liturgical and para-liturgical celebrations and the regular reception of the sacraments, are an integral part of each student’s life. The experience of Christian Community leads naturally to service. The students are encouraged to participate in service projects throughout the year.

St. Luke School holds membership in the National Catholic Education Association. Our school is part of the Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens and is subject to and bound by the general policies of the Diocese. Located in the Borough of Queens, St. Luke’s School complies with the regulations and requirements of the New York State Education Department.

Students enrolled in St. Luke enjoy a structured yet flexible learning environment. Through a program of basic academic skills, the students are encouraged to develop their talents and to achieve their optimum level of performance so that they will continue to reach higher levels of learning. The school offers a well-ordered curriculum of studies that include Religion, English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, TAC (Technology Across the Curriculum), Spanish, Physical Education, Music, Library, and Computer Education.
Established 1910
For 100+ years, St. Luke School has remained dedicated to nurturing the growth and development of the whole student: intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Our mission is to continue to acknowledge our obligation to guide our children in the manner called for by Christ in His Gospel, educating the whole person; body, mind and spirit, for his/her eternal community.
Vision Statement
Saint Luke School acknowledges its obligation and intention to guide our children in the manner called for by Christ in His Gospel, educating the whole person; body, mind and spirit, for his/her eternal community. It is the community of staff, teachers, administrator, pastor and parents, who are all involved in the education of our children.
Jesus Christ
is the reason for our school. He is Our Master, Our Lord and Our Savior. In his gospel, the deepest and most profound wisdom the world has ever known, we find the purpose of our lives. In the light of that gospel the clergy of our parish, the principal, the teachers and the auxiliary staff strive to serve our families by imparting to our children the finest possible education, and the priceless gift of our Roman Catholic Tradition.

BROOKLYN AND QUEENS CATHOLIC SCHOOLS ANNOUNCE BACK TO SCHOOL COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS
 

            The Office of the Superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Brooklyn, which
includes 69 elementary schools in Brooklyn and Queens, today has announced the COVID-19
safety protocols that will be in place when school opens on Wednesday, September 8, 2021.
 
            In the absence of a mandate, the New York State Department of Health recommends
school districts adopt universal indoor masking for all based on guidance from the American
Academy of Pediatrics and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Therefore,
Catholic Academies and Parish Schools in Brooklyn and Queens will require all students,
faculty, and staff members to wear masks beginning on the first day of school.
 
            In addition, school officials will continue to encourage vaccinations, social distancing,
hand washing and hand hygiene, while maintaining the rigorous daily cleaning and sanitizing of
facilities as well as enhanced ventilation. Parents will be reminded to keep their child home from
school if they are sick, and their child will be required to receive medical clearance from a
healthcare provider that they can safely return to in person instruction.  
The Catholic Academies and Parish Schools will also continue to follow city and state
guidelines regarding contact tracing, quarantine and isolation protocols.
 
            “As the numbers of Coronavirus cases continue to spike in children, and the overall
numbers of hospitalizations in New York City are on the rise, this is the most responsible
approach to take when we begin the new school year. I know the return to these safety measures
is not the situation parents, teachers or students were hoping to be the case in the 2021-2022
school year, but we cannot ignore the trends,” said Superintendent Dr. Thomas Chadzutko.
 
“Let us do our part from day one to prevent further increase of cases. If we are
successful, as this academic year moves along, we will revisit these guidelines and adjust them
accordingly. As much as we want a return to normalcy in our classrooms, we want our students,
faculty, and staff to be safe,” continued Dr. Chadzutko.
 

“Looking at the trajectory of past pandemics, it seems that a virus such as this one does
linger for some time even with the vaccination. I have received my vaccination and continue to
encourage others to do so as well. It is our hope that the COVID-19 vaccines will help bring an
end to this terrible virus that has controlled our lives for much of the past year and a half,” said
The Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio, Bishop of Brooklyn.

 

Catholic schools in Brooklyn and Queens, in adherence to strict guidelines, opened on
time for the 2020-2021 school year, and were able to offer five day a week instruction.
Enrollment increased in nearly 40% of the schools last year in grades K-8. To learn more about
