The boys and girls of Santa Lucia enjoy a warm and close family atmosphere. Small class sizes and a single lunch period contribute to a building where “everybody knows your name.” The buddy system keeps older children involved in the development of their younger school mates, who in turn depend on that friendship and guidance as part of their moral formation. Buddies work together on liturgical and seasonal activities which build school spirit.
Santa Lucia students create a monthly newspaper to share all the great work that is done around the school. Check out the links below to see issues of SPIRIT for the 2017-2018 school year!
