Attracting, retaining, and inspiring exceptional teachers is the foundation of St. Luke’s Strategic Plan. This hyperfocus on bringing the best talent to the Hilltop reflects our absolute clarity about the most important element of student success—teachers.

Faculty Excellence

St. Luke's exceptional teachers go Above & Beyond to connect with students, craft compelling curricula, and create experiences that spark a lifelong love of learning. It is precisely because of our advanced faculty that we can offer Advanced Curriculum.

St. Luke’s alumni rank relationships with teachers as the most highly valued aspect of their St. Luke’s education. Students, past and present, are hands down the best judges of why St. Luke’s teachers make a lasting impact…


Holly Conetta, Mother of Caitlyn ‘17 and Hunter ‘19

After Caitlyn’s first visit to St. Luke’s, she said ‘the teachers and students are so present and engaged.’ The faculty's creativity and care have been the defining elements of my daughter's success. Teachers told Caitlyn that her love of learning was inspiring to them, which, in turn, further inspired her.”

Faculty Support

Like all of us, teachers thrive when they feel valued and respected. Like their students, they crave the opportunity to explore and grow. By providing resources, opportunities, and encouragement to develop, we empower our faculty to bring their best selves to each moment of teaching.
