Curriculum

A Community of Lifelong Learners

At St. Luke's, rigorous academics are embedded in a curriculum that challenges students to stretch and reach intellectually, but also encourages study with a heart and with a purpose. To inspire a deep, life-long love of learning that is central to St. Luke's mission, and to develop resilient, globally-minded, socially responsible citizens, our curriculum, ethos and environment are designed to foster the following “thinking” dispositions, also known as St. Luke's Community Goals for Learning:



Curiosity


Wondering at our world, asking questions about it, exploring it.

Open-Mindedness


Being willing to consider and try new ideas, generating alternative options and explanations, and looking beyond the given and expected.

Truth & Understanding


Examining closely, looking for connections, exploring applications and consequences, pulling ideas apart, contrasting concepts, and building explanations.

Reflection


Thinking about one’s thinking, actively monitoring, regulating, evaluating, and directing one’s thinking.

Integrity


Living a life of honor, characterized by trustworthiness and moral and ethical strength.
