- We use the waiting list to fill openings as they occur through January 2020. The Registrar will contact you via email if a spot becomes available for your child.
- The waiting list does not carry over to the next school year. Remember to re-apply for the 2020-2021 school year if you have not heard from us by January 2020.
All applications and placements are subject to the approval of Debbie Weymouth, Director of Day School.
St. Luke’s Day School’s 9-Month Program is intended to be a nine-month commitment and each tuition payment represents one-ninth of the school year. Credit is not given for a child’s absence or days the school is not in session.
St. Luke’s Day School is licensed by Texas Health and Human Services and accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools AdvancED. Registration is open to all children regardless of race, ethnic origin, or religious preference.
