We hope you'll come visit to get a real feel for St. Luke's. Take a tour of our campus, meet our students and faculty, and learn more about our academic programs. Throughout the year, we invite families to explore St. Luke's. Our two main admission events include:
  • Welcome Wednesdays include student and parent-led group tours followed by a Q&A session with Director of Admission Ginny Bachman. Tours begin in the School's main lobby at 9:00am. 

  • St. Luke's October Open House provides a comprehensive overview of campus offerings and programs. This event includes an opening address by Head of School Mark Davis, campus tours, and presentations and discussions with faculty, administration, and students. 

Arrange a visit by calling the Office of Admission at (203) 801-4833 or emailing us at info@stlukesct.org for additional information. We look forward to connecting with you.

School Visit FAQs

List of 3 frequently asked questions.

  • What should I expect from my school visit?

    Middle School applicant (grades 5 through 8): Once we receive the Preliminary Application, we'll contact you to schedule a Shadow Day. Your child will spend the day with a current St. Luke's Student and have an interview with the Admission Office.  If timing allows, we schedule your parent tour & interview on the same day. Shadow Days are scheduled Monday, Wednesday & Friday: 8:00am - 2:45pm; Tuesdays & Thursdays: 9:00am - 2:45pm.

    Upper School applicant (grades 9 through 11): Once we receive the Preliminary Application, you and your parents will come in together for an appointment with the Office of Admission.  While your parents meet with a member of the Admissions staff, you will enjoy a student-led tour.  We then switch and you meet with Admissions while your parents tour. Appointments last about 1-1/2 hours and are available Monday, Wednesday & Friday: 8:00am, 10:00am and 1:00pm. Tuesdays & Thursdays: 9:00am, 11:00am and 1:30pm.
  • What should I expect during the interview?

    Our Admission team likes to spend time with both students and parents during the admissions process. Our goal is to get to know you and learn things that can't be found in an application—How do you see yourself as a student? What kinds of contributions might you make to our community? You should grab the opportunity to ask us questions about St. Luke's. It's a two way street: you get to know us and we get to know you.

    Our interview appointments are available at the following times: Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays at 8:00am, 10:00am or 1:00pm; Tuesdays & Thursdays at 9:00am, 11:00am or 1:30pm.   Middle School parent interviews typically last about 1 hour. Upper School student & parent interviews will last about 1-1/2 hours

    If you would like to speak with a member of a particular academic department or a coach, please let our office know when you call to set up your appointment.
  • What should I wear and what should I bring to my student visit?

    For boys:

    As far as what to bring: You might want to have a pair of sneakers for physical education class or a pick-up basketball game during lunch. A book is also a good idea, just in case your host is taking a test (you could take the test if you'd like to!). Other than that—just bring yourself.
