All Saints Catholic School (Preschool – Grade 8)

school childrenAll Saints Catholic School provides quality education and faith formation to children from preschool through grade eight. Teachers and staff work in partnership with parents who believe that the light of faith illumines everything children learn about themselves and the world. In a Christ-centered environment, students are encouraged to live the Gospel and practice habits of body, mind, and heart needed to mature in knowledge of the Catholic faith and to embrace stewardship as a way of life. Students in Grade Pre-K through Grade 4 experience the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd weekly.
