Our Program

Santa Lucia School blends the best of many educational models to foster a child’s innate gifts and love of learning. In addition to lessons in traditional academic core studies, Santa Lucia prides itself on establishing a strong foundation built on the following:

 Small Class Size Peace Cranes3

A low student/teacher ratio ensures individualized attention. The student body consists of family groupings of Primary, Elementary and Middle School classes.

Balanced Academics

Academic skills go hand in hand with the realms of fine art, music, drama and Spanish. Subjects are taught imaginatively and artistically through multi-sensory experiences.

The community is used as a valuable resource. Experts in various fields are frequently invited to share their knowledge with the students. In addition, the school weaves traveling education and local field trips into the core curriculum.

Independent Study

Quality family involvement is a value we support.We encourage active parent participation in the children’s education, both in the classroom as volunteers, as well as through the Independent Study assignments completed at home on Fridays.

Education of the Heart                                                                                                                 538

The school experience becomes supportive of the full embodiment of a child’s life when the educational environment recognizes the importance of their spiritual and emotional development alongside their intellectual development.

In-Depth Study

Our thematic approach allows basic skills of numeracy and literacy to be continually practiced while students study Monthly themes and curricula in-depth.
