All Saints Episcopal Day School

Our Episcopal Ethos

The values that guide the community at All Saints’ Episcopal Day School are informed by the Baptismal Covenant of the Episcopal Church. The Baptismal Covenant concludes with five simple promises that we believe are the foundation of a good and meaningful life, regardless of how you believe or the tradition to which you adhere. We are an inclusive community that values, celebrates, and supports all faith traditions, including those who have no particular faith commitments but seek to lead a meaningful life. The way we teach these promises at All Saints’ starts with inclusive community and ends with compassion:

These five simple principles define our Episcopal Ethos and shape the way we structure our common life at All Saints’.

All Saints Episcopal Day School

All Faiths are Welcome at All Saints'

All faiths are welcome and celebrated at All Saints'. Inspired by our Episcopal ethos, we encourage students to explore their spirituality through religion classes and bi-weekly chapel. All-school chapel on Tuesday mornings brings the entire school together and provides an opportunity to slow down, reflect, and come together as a community.

As the largest outreach mission of All Saints' Episcopal Church, we encourage you to learn more about our partnership.

Statement of Diversity and Inclusivity

At All Saints’ Episcopal Day School we are guided by our Episcopal ethos, which calls on us to create a community of inclusivity, driven by actions that support the dignity in all persons. We strive to create a sense of belonging for all of our community members that aligns with our mission. We recognize the natural dissonance present in any diverse community and we commit to engagement in learning and growth, which exemplifies a true inclusive community.

As a community we believe civil discourse is a powerful tool to provide our community members agency when discussing meaningful topics. In practice, civil discourse creates an opportunity to listen for understanding, learning, and reflection. At its best, civil discourse is an opportunity for sharing different perspectives with the confidence that those engaged in conversation are listening to truly gain an understanding of viewpoints different from their own.

All Saints’ students have a sense of agency to lead fruitful lives and serve the world. Our goal is that our graduates lead with strengths in cultural competency and critical thinking, the ability to engage in civil discourse, and the inherent drive to display empathy. This foundation results in students who engage with their communities with respect for all people.

As members of the All Saints’ community, students, parents, faculty/staff, administration, alumni, our vestry and our Board of Trustees are all committed to this ongoing discovery and growth. We recognize that this work is crucial to our mission as an educational institution and we view this work as continuous.
