Youth Learning

St. Luke School

Since 1921 St. Luke School has provided outstanding well-rounded education in a faith-centered community.  From early childhood education through eighth grade, students grow through a rich learning program that has led St. Luke to be recognized as a Blue Ribbon School.  The program focuses on developing academic excellence, critical and creative skills, emotional and physical health, and a strong Christian value system rooted in the heritage of our Catholic faith.  To learn more about our excellent blue-ribbon school contact us.

Faith Formation for Children

Come learn with us! Our program provides the opportunities to experience the rich sacramental life of the Church that can nourish and sustain our faith.

Register Children for Religious Education 

Come learn with us! We offer both in-school and at-home programs:

  • First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion are received in second grade when children have an understanding and readiness. Preparation requires two years of faith formation in first and second grade. 
  • Confirmation is received in eighth grade. The celebration of this Sacrament focuses on a young person’s faith and commitment to Christ, and his/her desire to enter adulthood in the parish community.
  • In-school classes are on Wednesdays at St. Luke School. Grades 1–4 meet from 3:30 – 4:30pm, and grades 5–8 meet from 6:30 – 8:00pm.  
  • At-home study program allows parents to work with their child(ren) using the same resources as the in-school classes.
