Dear Families,

It has never been a more exciting, impactful time to become part of the Archbishop Lyke community. As we build on years of tradition and innovate as one of the newest Partnership Schools, I am thrilled to lead our school in this new era. I look forward to welcoming you and your child to our joyful, rigorous community

Named after the first African-American bishop of Cleveland, our school embodies the values Archbishop Lyke believed in: equality of opportunity for all, a commitment to peace, and the chance for each child to pursue academic excellence in a community that lives out Catholic values.

As a Partnership School, we leverage the resources of an innovative Catholic school network to: 

  • Provide students a rigorous curriculum
  • Develop teachers with high-quality, research-based professional strategies and coaching
  • Manage our school wisely and efficiently, taking advantage of economies of scale
  • Partner with local and national philanthropists to ensure a top-notch education for our deserving young people.

We believe all students can achieve at the highest academic levels, and we welcome children of all faiths.  Our teachers, staff and network support students academically, spiritually and socially all the way through to high school. 

Archbishop Lyke students are eligible to receive state-funded scholarships. Tuition for Kindergarten through 8th-grade  students is fully funded through the Cleveland Scholarship or EdChoice Scholarship programs. Pre-K students who are eligible will receive a grant to reduce the parent cost. Diocesan need-based scholarships are available for those who may not qualify for a state-funded scholarship. For more details on scholarships, click here.

As you explore our website, you will see that Archbishop Lyke offers a variety of unique opportunities that reflect our mission to educate the whole child. The extended academic day allows students to learn more deeply and to enjoy community all day long.  And our warm discipline and spiritual formation help students grow to be as kind as they are accomplished.

Of course, the best way to get to know our community is to come see us for yourself. To find out more, fill out our inquiry form.

On behalf of all our teachers and families here at Archbishop Lyke School, we look forward to working with you and welcoming you to our community. 

With God’s blessing,

Nancy Lynch, Principal
