All Saints Episcopal Day School
We strive to create an academic, social, and spiritual climate where people learn, work, and play together with respect, responsibility, and understanding. That’s the All Saints Way.
Why an All Saints Education?
An All Saints education honors children’s natural gifts and talents while encouraging them to discover their passions. Students engage with the International Baccalaureate Programme alongside a close-knit set of like-minded peers who bring their best selves to the table each and every day. At All Saints, students develop the skills to build both a living and a life for themselves.
Thankfully, our students have not lost any ground academically during the pandemic. Read more about how the school has prevented learning loss and helped students to progress toward their International Baccalaureate goals.

More About Our Community
What Parents are Saying
“Our daughter came to All Saints in First Grade and she’s flourished ever since. The academics are rigorous, but delivered in such a thoughtful and considerate way. The social element teaches her that the world is much larger than she is and has helped develop her self confidence. While it’s our school, it feels more like our family. We run there every morning, with excitement for the day to unfold.”
“We were so amazed during our first conference when our youngest was in nursery school; how much he had learned and how well the teacher already knew him and recognized his strengths and what he needed to work on. Our amazement continues throughout our years at the school. The attention to each student, the wonderful community, the responsiveness of staff all comes together to make this an inspirational place for all children to learn.”
“These past two years have obviously been challenging for everyone. One constant that has remained are the incredible teachers. We cannot thank them enough for their dedication and support of our kids. Daniela and Nathaniel are such different children, but both have been able to thrive at this school due to the teachers and staff. Teachers at All Saints are able to recognize each student’s strengths and potential. We are so thankful for that and for the entire All Saints community.”
“We have been part of the All Saints Community for four years now. Our son is now in 1st grade and our daughter is in Pre-K. We are very happy with the academics, community and the values All Saints provides for our children and our family. Every staff member at All Saints goes above and beyond to make sure we are all connected.”
