Core Values

All Saints’ Episcopal Day School:

  • admits any child, regardless of race, color, national, sexual orientation, or ethnic origin.
  • admits every child so long as an appropriate curriculum can be provided and so that each child can reap the greatest benefit possible.
  • is a school where parents and visitors are welcome. We believe that a quality environment for children is one, which not only permits, but also encourages parents’ consistent involvement.

  • be a place that values childhood
  • promote academic excellence without losing sight of the whole child
  • hire and retain a superior Faculty

All Saints’ does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sexual orientation, religion, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its admissions and education policies, financial assistance programs, employment practices, and other school-administered programs.

Early Childhood Education

All Saints’ understands that early childhood education is a crucial building block of a child’s academic career.

Each academic level at All Saints’ incorporates specific programs in music, visual arts, language, movement, social-emotional learning, community service, and chapel.

All Saints’ students go on to attend a variety of public and private elementary schools across Austin, and the love of learning instilled here stretches well beyond the time they leave our classrooms.

Hands-on Play Based Curriculum

All Saints’ students experience innovative and challenging activities each day. All Saints’ teaching methodologies accommodate a variety of learning styles and development levels within each classroom. All Saints’ values supporting and engaging each child in their own academic exploration.

All Saints’ hands-on and play-based curriculum incorporates programs in library, music, visual arts, language, and movement. We offer Enrichment Programs, a Before School Program (Early Birds), and an After School Program (Stay & Play).

Focus On The Whole Child

All Saints’ prepares students to excel academically, and to shine as members of their family, community, and the world. We cultivate responsibility, integrity, empathy, and service.

To develop well-rounded students, the School utilizes a strong social-emotional learning program, weekly chapel, and community service programs at all classroom levels.

Caring and Committed Faculty

All Saints’ amazing Faculty and Staff provide extraordinary support to their students, the School, and the community. Our teachers nurture an environment of respect and support for each child in their classroom, and go to great lengths to create an inclusive and connected School campus.

Welcoming and Supportive Community

Your school needs to be the right fit for your child and the right fit your family. All Saints’ and our parents work together build a successful and supportive school community. Parents attend academic programs and school events, and witness the development of their children first-hand. Parents volunteer in their child’s classroom, school-wide events, and community service programs.
