Mission and Philosophy

Philosophy and Goals

All Saints’ Episcopal Day School believes that intellectual, spiritual, and ethical growth, cultural appreciation, and social and physical development are enhanced in a nurturing atmosphere which provides attention to the student as an individual. The independent private school believes that the learning process is a discipline in itself which develops attitudes of responsibility, cooperation, and independence. All Saints’ Episcopal Day School embodies its philosophy through its commitment to the following goals:

  • To promote a positive attitude toward learning
  • To develop in students a command of essential competencies—to read with comprehension, to listen attentively, to think critically, to solve problems analytically, and to communicate effectively in oral and written language
  • To nurture creativity and appreciation of the arts
  • To foster both independent and collaborative thinking
  • To build strong self-esteem, good citizenship, appreciation of differences, and social harmony
  • To create an atmosphere of social justice and respect for the dignity of every being
  • All Saints’ Episcopal Day School is a community that reflects “the traditional Anglican appreciation of cultural, racial, socioeconomic, and religious diversity.” With this in mind, the following policy statement is made: All Saints’ Episcopal Day School honors all students no matter what their religious backgrounds, not only in our worship environment, but also in the classroom
