Small class sizes facilitate targeted student-centered instruction.
This approach allows educators to develop a personalized learning program for each child. Then, understanding that everyone learns differently, Academy teachers differentiate content, process, learning tools, and the enviroment based on student readiness, interest, and skill level.
Our comprehensive math curriculum includes applications to everyday life and models activities that demonstrate the connections between math and other disciplines.
All students focus on developing a conceptual understanding of mathematics through hands-on learning, problem-solving, reasoning, and communication. Students are encouraged to explore, question, and use manipulatives on their way to a solution.
Students learn to read and write in a variety of texts through a strategic curriculum that includes phonological awareness, sight words, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, essential writing and grammar skills, listening and speaking skills, and STEM integration.
Classes at all levels engage with books and literature that cultivate an appreciation and respect for different races, cultures, and beliefs.
Art & Music
Learning through and about the arts builds a foundation for children to understand what art is and how they can create it. Saint Luke Academy recognizes the impact of music on the rich heritage of the Lutheran church and offers many ways for students to participate and grow musically through basic rhythm, music theory and appreciation, choir, and individual instrument instruction.
Science & Technology
Children are naturally curious about everything around them. Academy students are encouraged to observe and record the unique properties and characteristics of what they see and experience. Students use mathematical analysis, scientific inquiry, and design to pose questions, seek answers, and develop solutions.
Technology is used in all classrooms.
Social Studies helps children understand their expanding world and prepares them to become productive citizens. Our youngest students learn how to make meaningful connections between themselves, their families, and their community, while older students expand into U.S. History, connecting the past with the present, and deepening their understanding of how diversity has played an important role in shaping our society.
