Prepared to Thrive

“The Middle School years are such a critical time in a child’s learning development. The quality of the foundation we build and the sense of empowerment we help students develop in fifth through eighth grade—will influence the course of their lives.”

- Amber Berry, Head of Middle School

With care and guidance from exceptional teachers, Middle School students at St. Luke’s explore topics, discover interests, and forge their own paths, building skills and confidence for life. When they move to Upper School, they do so with agency. Be it in class, on the stage, in the designLab, across the athletic fields—students can go Above and Beyond what they ever thought possible.

Families invest in a St. Luke's Middle School education for many reasons. Here are four to consider:


1. A Balance of Nurture & Challenge

St. Luke’s parent Andrea Klein describes her experience as the parent of three St. Luke’s graduates and shares why she believes that “starting their SLS journey early gives kids a solid foundation and a level of confidence that just kept building.” Setting high expectations while offering warm guidance and support are St. Luke’s hallmarks.

2. The Joy of Discovery is Palpable

The St. Luke's Middle School is an exciting place to be on any given day. The curriculum is designed to get students out of their seats and engage with the learning firsthand rather than simply read about them in a book. St. Luke's distinct approach to an exceptional education is our advantage.

3. An Inspiring Multi-Age Environment

Head of Middle School Amber Berry describes the opportunities that arise when younger students attend a 5-12 school: “I’ve worked in different schools with different structures which helps illuminate the many benefits of St. Luke’s composition. Above all else, it gives our young students a true sense of the wonderful journey ahead."

4. A Foundation that Builds Confidence 

Seven out of our last ten Valedictorians and Salutatorians started their St. Luke's journey in Middle School. By the time they graduate, students are well on their way to becoming whatever they wish to be—ethical leaders, insightful scholars, winning athletes, and talented artists. They are eager to move into the next phase of their lives, achieving above and beyond their own expectations.

Hear how one recent graduate reflects on her experience “growing up” at St. Luke’s.
