Welcome to St. Luke Academy
Dear parents and friends of St. Luke Coptic Orthodox Christian Academy,
By the grace of God, we have a great opportunity to educate our children in a Christ-centered environment. Planting seeds in young children in a Christian environment will yield future leaders and amazing professionals; “For the Lord gives wisdom, and from His face come knowledge and understanding” (Proverbs 2:6).
St. Mary & St. Verena Coptic Orthodox Church has long dreamed of starting a school where our young children may receive Orthodox Christian teachings. We are fortunate to acquire a property that has become the home of St. Luke Academy. Our congregation recognized this need a long time ago, and has been supportive in making this project become a reality. We are also thankful to have a group of well-qualified educators and passionate supporters who were enthusiastic about establishing the Academy.
As children advance to Elementary and Junior High grades in the Academy, we are hoping to increase fundamental Orthodox teachings in such areas as Church feasts, Sacraments, iconography, saints, hymns, and interpretation of the Holy Scripture.
We are very thankful to God for all the blessings He has bestowed upon St. Luke Academy. We also thank our beloved and caring father, His Eminence Metropolitan Serapion, for his incredible encouragement and guidance throughout this project as well as their Graces Bishop Abraham and Bishop Kyrillos for their prayers and unwavering support.
We are humbled and grateful for the love, zeal, and support of our parishioners and friends throughout the Diocese in establishing St. Luke Academy. Many have shown remarkable generosity and support. May our Lord reward everyone with a hundred fold of blessings, and may He crown St. Luke Academy with His blessings and success.
