A Brief History of St. Luke Catholic School
St. Luke Catholic School was founded, along with the parish, in 1961 in response to the northward movement of families, mainly from the areas of St. Joan of Arc, Immaculate Heart of Mary and St. Thomas Aquinas. The Sisters of Providence originally staffed the school.
There has been continual growth to the parish and facility since that time. This growth included additional classrooms in 1964; a full size gym in 1974; a new church in 1982; a kindergarten and youth center wing in 1994; a new building with parish hall, library, music, art and youth area in 2000 ; and a second gym facility in 2008. These latter additions were in response to increased enrollment and allowed the expansion from two sections of each grade to the current three sections. We have been blessed over the years with supportive pastors and parishioners.
St. Luke serves an increasingly diverse student body and prepares them to know and live by Catholic values as part of the Body of Christ. Students at all grade levels have opportunities for prayer, retreats, service and leadership. Parents are actively involved as volunteers in the school, through athletics and leadership roles.
St. Luke was recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School in 2004 and is currently identified as a “Four Star School” by the State of Indiana Department of Education. St. Luke School is accredited by both the State of Indiana and AdvanceEd (the old North Central Association). Our students graduate to attend Bishop Chatard High School, Brebeuf Jesuit, Cathedral High School as well as St. Theodore Guerin High School, North Central, Park Tudor, University High School and Carmel. Their academic record shows that they were well prepared for these rigorous secondary schools.
St. Luke Catholic School, with the love of Jesus Christ as our model and guide, is dedicated to educating students in Catholic Doctrine and practice.
St. Luke Catholic School will graduate students that are prepared to attain their spiritual, academic, social, physical, emotional, and creative potentials to make a positive difference in God's World.
