Our Head of School

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.
