All Saints Episcopal Day School

Meet Head of School, Dr. Emma Whitman

Dear Families, 

Walking onto campus at All Saints’ Episcopal Day School, you feel the vibrant community and culture that defines who we are. Our mission is to educate children—mind, body, and soul—in a nurturing community. We are faithful to the inclusive identity of the Episcopal Church, welcoming students and families of all faiths and spiritual traditions. We foster relationships between children, parents, faculty, staff, and the Church—we are a community of All Saints’.  

There is both great joy and opportunity being in an independent, pre-kindergarten through eighth-grade school. We focus every space and every aspect of our program on the individual child: the close relationships with members of our gifted and caring faculty, the cultivation of passion and purpose in studies, and the faculty’s deep understanding of the child’s social-emotional development.

When children are excited about what they are learning, supported to grow in their individual strengths, and persevere through challenges, they thrive as learners and as people." 

We believe that children learn by “doing.” We prepare students for the world ahead by teaching them to be innovators, passionate problem solvers, and people that have an earnest desire to help others. We blend a rigorous and intentional curriculum with process-oriented capacities—self-agency, citizenship, care for others, collaboration, and understanding “self” as a learner. The child is at the center of all we do. 

I encourage you to walk on campus. Listen to the voices of our children, meet our supportive faculty, and experience the spirit and strength of The All Saints’ Way. You will feel the difference. 

We thank you for your interest in our School. It is a unique and powerful place.

Our Special Shaver Learning Commons
Dr. Emma Whitman, Head of School

Every day I walk through the Shaver Learning Commons and see learning come to life. I love the moments when I see our middle school students sprawled on the lawn talking and working in groups on a project, and our younger students reading with their buddies on the swings. I can even hear the band practicing their instruments on the stage from my office (and they have made so much progress!). 

I wanted to share some exciting news about the recognition the Shaver Learning Commons is receiving outside of our community, but the most important thing about this space is the impact it has had on our students and faculty. That is why we built it—for our community.

2024 State of the School
Dr. Emma Whitman, Head of School

In the past few years, the All Saints' community has come together to accomplish extraordinary goals—creating both the Christopher Ray Milisci Academic Building and the Shaver Learning Commons—a process two decades in the making. Please read on for a few highlights of the momentous work we have recently accomplished, and join me in expressing collective gratitude for our faculty, our staff, our leadership, ASPA, all of our parents, All Saints' Church, The Challenge Foundation, and most importantly, our amazing students. I am beyond proud of who we are as a school and all we continue to accomplish.

Through our mission, we provide academic excellence in an inclusive community, fostering lifelong learning and nurturing each individual in mind, body, and spirit in the Episcopal tradition.
