Academic Scholarship. Leadership. Tradition. These three principles provide the foundation upon which St. Luke’s Episcopal School has shaped the lives of thousands of students since its founding in 1961.
We aim to provide a rigorous academic environment that fosters creativity, artistry, curiosity, innovation, and critical thinking. It is a place for young people to explore, grow, and develop into young men and women of integrity that are prepared to be leaders in college and in life. To honor those that have come before us, serve those that are here now, and pave the way for future students, we are launching our Mother Oak Annual Campaign.
The Mother Oak Annual Campaign will ensure our ability to continue providing a stellar academic curriculum, taught by a highly skilled and competitive faculty, that strives to meet each student where they are and elevate their learning to the best of their ability. Embracing a student-centered approach to learning allows for flexibility and provides opportunities and experiences not found in traditional-only classrooms.
Leadership through service is at the heart of our school community. Our relationships with organizations such as Coastal Alabama Cleanup, Dixie Rear Detachment, Murray House, Ronald McDonald House, Special Olympics, and more provide our students with many opportunities to help others and develop a servant's heart.
St. Luke’s has many rich traditions established by previous generations of students that we continue and value. These provide alumni, current students, and future Wildcats all with a sense of community, pride, and belonging.
The Mother Oak Annual Campaign will allow us to continue to provide the full St. Luke’s experience that makes our school unique now and in the future. Additionally, it will provide a way to recognize our donors, students, alumni, faculty, former faculty, or anyone that has made a difference in the life of our school through several naming opportunities.

The Mother Oak Annual Campaign is the cornerstone of all giving efforts because it serves our two greatest assets: our students and our teachers. Dollars raised help us provide students with classroom enhancements, teacher development, address emerging priorities of the school, build our endowment and bolster financial assistance. Your tax deductible, unrestricted gift ensures that St. Luke’s students benefit from an exceptional classroom experience beyond that which tuition alone would cover.
By giving to the Mother Oak Annual Campaign, you are sending a powerful message that you believe in the mission of St. Luke’s Episcopal School to present a college preparatory community developing young men and women of honor, faith and responsibility with character and intellect to thrive in college and life. When you participate, you become a part of the school’s legacy of academic excellence and lifelong learning. Additionally, broad support from the entire school community helps to influence the giving decisions of foundations and businesses, further enhancing the learning experiences St. Luke’s can offer its students.

Other Ways to Give.
Oak Leaves Society
In our current economy it can be difficult to give generously. But for many there is a way.
A bequest may be a particularly attractive gift option if you are unable to make an outright gift but would like to contribute to the school in a meaningful way. Estate gifts may be a few hundred dollars, thousands or millions of dollars.
Specific bequests are most common. You may leave a specific amount of money, asset, or percentage of your estate to St. Luke’s Episcopal School. Residual bequests go to St. Luke’s Episcopal School only after all debts, expenses, taxes, and other bequests have been paid.
If you decide to include St. Luke’s in your will, IRA, life insurance, etc., you may use this official language:
I give, devise and bequeath to St. Luke’s Episcopal School, a non-profit organization duly existing under the laws of the state of Alabama and located at Mobile, Mobile County, Alabama, x% of estate or $xx to be used for...
If you have included or would like to include St. Luke’s Episcopal School in your estate plans, please let us know by calling 251-666-2991 ext 8140. We would love the opportunity to recognize your generosity or honor your desire to remain anonymous.
