History

All Saints' Episcopal Day School opened its doors for the first time on September 9, 1963 with 60 children in kindergarten through third grade. Established as an outreach ministry of All Saints' Episcopal Church, the School was founded under the vision and guidance of the first Headmaster, The Rev. Paul DeWitt Urbano.

Our prime aim for our children is equal education of the body and the soul."Father Paul DeWitt Urbano
