A BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE

Why Choose All Saints?

All Saints, a 2009 Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, is a Christ-centered parochial school rooted in the tradition of the Catholic Church. Recognizing parents as the primary educators, All Saints works in partnership with parents to foster the spiritual growth and educational development of each child.

It is the goal and commitment of All Saints Catholic School to provide all students with the educational foundation to go forward in faith and knowledge into the world. Our curriculum is designed to offer every student a balanced program engendering spiritual growth, intellectual excellence, social responsibility, physical development, and sensitivity to cultural and aesthetic experience.

All Saints cultivates a safe learning environment that encourages students to become active learners, finding opportunities to apply both knowledge and skills to problem-solving. With sensitivity to the needs of the individual, All Saints nurtures and encourages each child to grow and attain his or her highest potential.

A Foundation in Faith
Empowered by the Spirit, it is our mission to cultivate a Christ-centered community where students develop a relationship with God that will serve as a foundation of faith throughout their lives. Our students live their Catholic faith through prayer and service to others. From student-led prayer to begin and end each day, the Angelus at noon, daily religion class and weekly school mass, our Catholic faith is woven into everything we do at All Saints. The practice of our faith also includes many beloved traditions related to the liturgical calendar, including our Alleluia Prayer Service and May Crowning.
