All Saints Catholic Academy Mission
The mission of All Saints Catholic Academy is to develop future leaders who are formed by academic excellence, service, and respect for all in a Christ-centered community.
To realize this mission, All Saints Catholic Academy partners with parents and parish communities to nurture leadership development through the formation and education of each child in spirit, mind, and body. Faculty and staff introduce children to their savior and strive to “teach as Jesus did” through a balance of message, worship, community, and service. The school provides a rich Christ-centered learning environment that focuses on core Catholic values while it embraces academic rigor.
All Saints Catholic Academy offers students an integrated faith-based curriculum that is both comprehensive and rigorous. Challenging academic courses are aligned with state and national standards as well as with the Cardinal Newman Society Catholic Curriculum Standards and the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools. Religion and technology are integrated throughout all content areas, and a variety of before and after-school programs are structured to meet the spiritual, moral, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs of each child. All school programs and activities are strategically designed to ensure that every graduate of All Saints Catholic Academy is formed in faith, educated for excellence, and sent to serve.
