All Saints implements a rigorous curriculum aligned to Diocesan standards. Our Catholic faith is woven into all that we do and all that we teach, as we follow in the example of Jesus Christ in our words and actions. Our highly qualified faculty implement best instructional practices to meet students’ varied needs. Learning is collaborative and engaging. When you visit a classroom at All Saints, you’ll see a combination of whole class instruction, small group work, and independent practice. You’ll see students working creatively with manipulatives, having thought-provoking discussions, and using technology. All Saints has a SMART Board in each classroom and a 1:1 device program beginning in Kindergarten (iPads are used in K-2 and Chromebooks are used in 3-8).
At All Saints, we educate the whole child. The core curriculum includes daily instruction in math, English/language arts (reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary, grammar), religion, science, and social studies. We offer accelerated programs in math beginning in 4th grade and offer Honors track English/Language Arts classes in 7th and 8th grade. We also have a Resource team that works with students who may need extra academic assistance, providing support to individuals and small groups. In addition to strong core curriculum, we provide weekly enrichment opportunities for all ages through our Physical Education, Art, Music, Spanish, Library, Technology, and STEAM classes.
In fall of 2021, we opened a state-of-the-art STEAM lab, where our 3rd-8th grade student attend weekly classes. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. The STEAM program is centered on 21st century learning skills such as exploration, problem-solving, communication, and collaboration. The curriculum includes instructional learning launchers in eight disciplines (mechanics and structure, computer graphics, science and data acquisition, publishing and multimedia, alternative and renewable energy, robotics and control technology, circuitry, and computer simulation). STEAM instruction focuses on the process rather than the final product, teaching students that failure is a valuable learning experience.
While STEAM is currently a 3rd-8th grade class, our goal is to expand the lab to our Kindergarten-2nd grade students in the fall of 2022!
