  • Complete Online Application

    Apply online using the Standard Application Online (SAO), a common application used by St. Luke's and other independent schools. Complete the Student Profile and submit your application fee in order to make your application visible to the Office of Admission. St. Luke's school code is 6530.

    Later in the process, you will use the SAO to submit Parent and Student Statements and to request recommendations and school records.
  • Submit Standardized Testing

    St. Luke's and our peer schools in Fairfield and Westchester Counties have moved to a Standardized Test Preferred policy. Students may submit scores from either of the two independent school entrance exams - the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) or the SSAT - or from any standardized test completed in school. While test scores are no longer required to complete an application, in many cases we still find the information valuable in understanding this part of a student's academic profile.
  • Schedule Student and Parent Interviews

    When the Office of Admission receives your SAO Student Profile, we will contact your family to schedule your virtual interviews and optional in-person campus tour.
  • Apply for Tuition Assistance (optional)

    Families requesting Tuition Assistance complete the Parents Financial Statement through School and Student Services (SSS).
