“Since our founding in 1953, we have been committed to developing a faithbased and integrated academic curriculum focused on nurturing the whole child.”
Welcome to St. Lucy School… “We are an innovative Catholic school within a thriving parish community. Our students are engaged learners who benefit from a supportive community of dedicated teachers, parents, grandparents, and alumni who partner in support of their growth.” Sue Grover
Why parents choose our school:
We weave our Catholic values through all we do.
We have a welcoming, family-oriented community where opportunities for parent involvement abound.
Our highly-qualified and committed staff works together to prepare our students for life.
Our top-notch curriculum earned us the maximum term of accreditation in the Spring of 2014.
Faith is at the core of preparing students for life. Each year the faculty selects a value-based theme with monthly focus areas, which are integrated throughout the school day. This year’s theme is “Respect is Our Superpower”.
St. Lucy School is a vibrant community. Many family activities are offered throughout the year that help keep school spirit high!

IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Congratulations to both of the St. Lucy School Lego Robotics teams! Both teams performed wonderfully in this year’s First Lego League Competition, based on a Hydro Dynamics. This year’s focus is all about water – how we find, transport, use, or dispose of it. The challenge includes programming a robot to score points on a themed table , and designing a solution to an identified problem. BoltBots 2.h2o designed a storm drain filter whereas BoltBots 2.h2o designed a scratch nameplate for disposable water bottles. BoltBots 3.h2o won not only the project award, but also an award for Global Innovation. They also placed 6th in the robotics mission. Both St. Lucy School lego robotics teams were honored for their hard work. We are so proud of both teams!

The sun was shining today at St. Lucy School during Family Groups class. 8th graders led student discussions on how small actions can make a positive impact on those around us. Each K-8th grade student in the group participated as they talked about what being positive means and brainstormed examples. Each group then created a sunshine poster of positive energy to hang all around the school. We love Family Groups Day! ... See MoreSee Less
