Mission Statement & Aspirations 

Grace-St. Luke’s Episcopal School prepares boys and girls to become creative problem solvers, confident lifelong learners, and responsible citizens in their communities and the world.

In striving to live our mission day by day, we are committed to these guiding principles:

  • to diligently cultivate a sense of belonging in our school community where each student and family feels welcome, included, and connected.
  • to discover and foster each child’s unique strengths and passions and to find ways to connect these to classroom learning.
  • to intentionally develop in each child skills and attitudes that offer a foundation for a lifetime of success.
  • to provide through our curriculum many opportunities for all students to plan and participate in meaningful service and contribution to the various communities in which they live.


Since opening its doors in 1947, Grace-St. Luke's Episcopal School has been committed to meeting the needs of boys and girls by offering a superior, college preparatory education and building 21st century skills within a nurturing environment that emphasizes the development of character, honor and integrity. The school is proud of its Anglican roots and its modern diversity.Read More

Episcopal Identity

Grace-St. Luke's School is an Episcopal school, affiliated with Grace- St. Luke's Episcopal Church, and therefore the mission and ministry of this school finds its specific expression within the structure of the Christian faith and practices of the Episcopal Church. The expression of our foundation of faith is an important aspect of our life together. From Miss Lee's early childhood program through grade eight, students attend regular, age-appropriate chapel services at designated times each week. Attendance at chapel is required of each student. At the same time, the religious traditions and background of each student are respected, and we believe a range of faiths and cultures enhances the personal and educational experience of all students.

School Prayer 

O God, let your heavenly blessing be upon Grace-St. Luke's School, that whatsoever things are true and pure, lovely and of good report, may here flourish and abound. Inspire with love and goodness both those who teach and those who learn. Open our hearts and minds to all truth, and give us grace to serve you faithfully. We ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
