What changes has All Saints made in response to the pandemic? Are you offering in-person learning?
During Spring and Summer 2020 we adapted our facilities and procedures
- meeting or exceeding state and national requirements - and adopting a Hybrid Learning Model
as of the start of the 2020-2021 school year. Students in Nursery and Pre-Kindergarten are on campus five days per week, and students in Kindergarten-Grade 8 engage in on-campus learning four days per week and at-home remote online learning for the fifth day.
What changes have been made to your admission process during the (COVID-19) pandemic?
With safety and wellbeing top of mind, the admission process will be fully virtual until further notice.
Where are you located?
We have two campuses. Our Saint Nicholas Center Campus (SNC) houses grades Nursery (3’s) - Kindergarten and is located at 527 Clinton Street. Our Washington Street Campus, adjacent to the All Saints Episcopal Church, houses Grade 1 through Grade 8. Are you a religious school?
What is the application process?
Our spirituality program is ingrained in the fabric of our school curriculum and community, lived out through ongoing social action, community service, and self-reflection activities.
Established in 1985 as an outreach mission of All Saints Episcopal Parish, we were founded upon and espouse the sacred tenets contained in the Baptismal Covenant of the Episcopal Church: to love our neighbors as ourselves, strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.
We serve children of all faiths and embrace a view of spirituality that is broad and inclusive. We value religious diversity and provide opportunities for students to understand and appreciate a variety of different religious traditions and celebrations.
There is no compulsory worship or doctrine-based programming.
Parents of all applicants must submit an on-line application which includes a parent essay as well as a teacher recommendation, Head of School recommendation and recent progress reports if applicable. Applicants will be invited for an observation visit (whether in-person or virtual) and the parents will be invited for an interview (whether in-person or virtual).
In addition to the documentation mentioned above, applicants to Grades 5-7 must submit a student questionnaire. While not required, ISEE or SSAT test reports are appreciated.Is there an age cut off date?
Students must be three years old by September 1 of the year that they start Nursery. This cut off date policy stands until Third Grade, when we will consider applicants who miss the cut off. Is your Nursery and Pre-Kindergarten a full-day or half-day program?
We offer two options for Nursery and Pre-Kindergarten:
- Full-day - 8:30-3:00
- Half-day - 8:30-11:15How do you select students for admission?
The admissions committee carefully considers all of the information from the application, student observation, parent interview, letters of recommendation and assessment in order to enroll as balanced a population as possible. This includes, but is not limited to, balancing along gender, race, international status, socio-economic diversity, and familial structure. Do you have a wait list?
Unfortunately, we cannot offer spots to all of the qualified candidates who apply. We will offer wait pool acceptances to those students who are determined to be a good fit at All Saints but for whom we do not have enough spots. Should a spot become available, we will draw from this wait pool. We do not have a rank ordered list as we strive to fill vacancies with the applicants who help us maintain the class balance. Are any applicants given special consideration?
Yes. Siblings, legacy students and members of All Saints Parish are given priority in the admissions process. Do you offer Financial Aid?
Yes. We offer need-based financial aid and applicants must submit their Financial Aid Application
, along with a letter explaining their circumstances at the same time that they apply for admission. Approximately 5% of our families receive some form of Financial Aid. How many openings do you have?
The number of openings varies each year depending on our sibling and legacy applicant pool and on how many families re-enroll for any given year. We encourage applications from all qualified applicants and will do our best to accommodate requests for placement from families who are a good fit with our program.Does All Saints provide high school placement support?
Yes, we begin the High School application process in the middle of Grade 7 and work in partnership with families and students throughout the process. A complete list of schools to which our graduates have been accepted can be found at High School Placement
