As a school, our Episcopal ethos of inclusivity serves as a driving force in all we do.
At All Saints' we share the notion that talent is equally distributed among children, however, opportunity is not. We are deeply committed to providing access to our exceptional education to families across the socio-economic spectrum. Since 2013, we have partnered with The Challenge Foundation as part of this commitment.
Rather than "closing the gap," we at All Saints' speak of "widening the gate."
The Challenge Foundation
From six scholars entering middle school in 2013, All Saints' partnership with The Challenge Foundation has flourished over the last decade. Currently, The Challenge Foundation supports 27 students at All Saints’, 23 students at local private high schools, and 10 students in colleges and universities across the country. As The Challenge Foundation’s first—and only—partner school in Arizona, the 33 students in high school and college are proud All Saints’ alumni.
In fall 2022, we were excited to welcome The Challenge Foundation to a more centralized location on campus, taking over the former front office and administration building. This move has allowed further integration of the program with the School community and provided opportunities for additional collaboration and partnership.
The Challenge Foundation’s mission is to break the cycle of poverty through educational opportunities. Challenge Foundation Scholars complete a rigorous scholarship application process before being evaluated for admission to All Saints’. Once accepted, Scholars receive robust support throughout their time at All Saints’, during high school, and through their college experience. Resources extend beyond tuition, including mentorship, social services, and much more.
The community at All Saints' gives our children hope. To live with hope is different than living with an uncertain future. To live with hope is so big for our kids and for their families.” Challenge Foundation Family
