Lower School

St. Luke’s lower school continues to build upon the skills developed in our Early Childhood program. Each day, our students are given opportunities to explore, discover, and experiment in age appropriate ways. Our teachers create lessons that challenge ours students to think critically, work collaboratively, and problem solve. Children can then demonstrate their learning through hands-on creative projects and activities.

Lower School Curriculum

Lower school learning is enhanced with cross-curricular activities and project-based learning. We use Fundations, a Wilson Language Basics curriculum, to teach letter sounds, proper formation, and beginning reading skills. Students engage in both whole class and small group instruction. Teachers also build vocabulary, grammar, and writing skills through engaging read alouds. 

Science and social studies are taught in units, providing hands-on driven projects. The material is revisited over months and across grades, leading to long-term mastery of facts, skills and concepts. 

Our math curriculum is Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Into Math. We use numerous hands-on activities to enhance and enrich the program.

5th Grade T-Shirt Tradition

This tradition began in 2018 to honor and recognize the lower school leaders of St. Luke's: our fifth graders! Every year, the students work together to create a design that reflects the personality of their class. Proudly worn as they cross over to middle school and continue through eighth grade, each fifth grade shirt is unique to their class and their class only.

The shirts are produced here in Baton Rouge at Giraphic Prints, a screen-printing business co-founded by St. Luke's alum Josh Ford (Class of 2000).

Athletic Opportunities

We offer a variety of sports for students in third through eighth grade. By beginning school sports in third grade, we are able to establish the foundation for each sport early, providing an avenue for our student-athletes to evolve and grow throughout their tenure at St. Luke’s.
