A Letter from Our Principal

Welcome to Saint Lucas! It is an honor and a privilege that you would express interest in calling Saint Lucas your family’s school home! As you begin to learn more about our school, our hope is that Saint Lucas ends your search for the perfect fit.

Saint Lucas has been a landmark on the corner of Kinnickinnic Avenue and Dover Street in Bay View for over 150 years offering a safe, supportive environment. We often hear things like, “My grandpa attended Saint Lucas back in the day,” or “My years at Saint Lucas were the best!” We want to continue to nurture that generational community connection.

The foundation that guides Saint Lucas’ mission and work is rooted in the truths of God’s Word and the boundless gift of His goodness and grace. Visitors walking through our halls notice talk about the warmth and love they sense here for our students and for one another. Spiritual support for students and families is at the core of all we do.

Saint Lucas knows its students. We know what they need. An education that will challenge them wherever they are academically and emotionally, inspire them as the unique God-created individuals they are, support them unconditionally, and prepare them for their futures in the 21st century.

We are absolutely committed to walking alongside and equipping our students for life beyond our walls.

We look forward to meeting you soon, and would love to see you call Saint Lucas your family’s school home.

Andrew Baxter, Principal

Saint Lucas School is a ministry of Saint Lucas Lutheran Congregation.

As Christians living powerfully in Jesus, we: 

  • Connect: By focusing on the path and not the destination, when we actively seek to build relationships, when we are willing to be vulnerable.
  • Serve: By caring for the worldly (physical) needs of others, by caring for the spiritual and emotional needs of others, by participating in our community. 
  • Grow: When we learn about God, and when we put our faith into practice.
