Welcome to All Saints Catholic Academy, and thank you for your interest. We are so proud of All Saints. We are humbled by your consideration of our great school.
At All Saints, we understand that selecting the right school for your child and family is an important decision. We believe that ASCA offers you a choice that is second to none. We look forward to sharing our vision with you. We hope that you will recognize our focus on academics, our vibrant school community, our beautiful facility and campus, and our safe, nurturing and caring Christ-centered environment.
We are joined in these efforts by a superb faculty and staff who are dedicated to each student’s success - both in the classroom, and in the formation of who they are, and who they are becoming. At All Saints, we are family. You and your child will be known, cared for, and loved.
At ASCA, we partner with our parents, who are the primary educators of their children.
Our parents support us with their time, talents and treasure for the benefit of all of our All Saints students. Our students show their love for Christ and others by looking after one another, treating their peers with respect, and doing their very best each day. We are a community working together, valuing children, and modeling virtue.
We will challenge your child to discover his or her unique gifts, and to learn to use these gifts for personal success, to help others, and to serve those in need in the broader community. At All Saints, we welcome families and students of ALL faiths.
Schools operated under the auspices of the Diocese of Joliet admit students of any race, color, sex, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally available to students at the schools. We will admit students who are non-Catholic per our Admission Policy. Parents and students must understand participation in Catholic religious instruction, school activities, and community service related to the Catholic identity of the school is required.
Registration for the 2024-2025 School Year is Now Open
Apply at All Saints
We warmly welcome you to All Saints Catholic Academy. Applications for new families opened on November 15, 2023 for the 2024-2025 school year. Each New Student Application is date and time stamped, so if a grade level becomes full, a waiting list will be formed based on order of acceptance, then by submission date and time.
The order of acceptance will be:
- Newly enrolled siblings of currently enrolled students/school families.
- Children of All Saints Alumni.
- Children who are transferring from a Catholic school which has closed.
- New families registered and active in ASCA's supporting parishes (Saint Elizabeth Seton, Saint Margaret Mary, Saint Thomas the Apostle, Holy Spirit Catholic Church, and Our Lady of Mercy).
- Prospective families who are transferring their child(ren) from another Catholic school, whose children are in good standing at that school.
- Children of Catholic families who belong to another Catholic parish.
- All other families.
All Saints Catholic Academy is a multiple parish-supported school. Once a family is accepted into All Saints Catholic Academy, they will continue to enjoy acceptance for their children as long as they continue to remain active in their parish and the school.
Once you determine that All Saints is the right match for your student and family, we encourage your early application as a number of our grade levels were full in the 2023-2024 school year.
Admission Process and Requirements
The admission process at All Saints begins once you have completed the online Application Form.
New Family Registration is available on a rolling basis with the online Application Form.
New Family Application Forms can be submitted online as soon as the link is live on Wednesday, November 15, 2023.
All New Family Applications will begin to be reviewed after December 11 on an ongoing basis, according to order of acceptance outlined below.
When there is no additional availability in a grade, we maintain a waiting list. If you are notified you are on a waiting list and concerned about availability opening up, we encourage you to call the school to further discuss. Historically, most students who have been waitlisted have been placed by the beginning of the school year.

Why Choose All Saints - Hear Why From One of Our Students
My name is Lucas Ling and I am a 7th Grader at All Saints Catholic Academy. I have been a student at All Saints for 8 years and I would like to tell you what makes All Saints such a great school.
One of my favorite weekly activities is meeting with my faith buddy. We attend our school mass together each Friday and then participate in faith related activities together in the classroom. The teachers at All Saints make learning fun and exciting. Whether it’s the Academic Olympics in History, coding robots in the STEAM lab, or only speaking Spanish while in Senora’s classroom, I feel challenged each and every day.
Even though it’s my school, All Saints seems more like a family to me. When I am walking the halls, I am often greeted with a smile and my name by either my principal, fellow student, parent volunteer or former teacher. While I’m at school, All Saints feels like my home away from home.
We would love for you to join our All Saints family.
We welcome you, and we'll be with you each step of the way as you discern this important decision for your child(ren) and family ......
Ask Yourself, What Kind of Education Would You Like for Your Child?
We are living at a time where there appears to be so much division in our society. If we are looking for reasons to separate ourselves from one another, there will be polarization and disagreement. Division, however, is not the prism through which God sees His beloved children.
At All Saints, we believe that we see God in all people and that we are called to love one another. We are committed to fostering an inclusive community in which each person feels a sense of value and belonging, and where our diversity recognized and celebrated in a positive way.
One of the primary reasons that parents give for sending their children to a Catholic school is academic excellence, and All Saints is no exception. Three out of four All Saints graduates choose to continue their education at a Catholic high school where an entrance exam is required. The All Saints faculty works tirelessly toward preparing their students for the academic rigors of ASCA and beyond. Current year standardized test scores show our 4th- 8th grade students all testing beyond grade level in both ELA and Math.
Equally if not more important to parents is the emphasis on Catholic morals and values, healthy social relationships, and a supportive, nurturing and safe environment. Students are expected to accept responsibility for their actions, to respect others and to make good decisions in the context of their faith experience. With Christ as our model – the goal of a Catholic education is to help children mature into Christ-like people.
If you are wondering why you might choose a Catholic school for your child, the real question might be, “What do I want for my child?” The likely answer is “a Catholic school education.”
All Saints is a Diocese of Joliet regional Catholic elementary school established in 2005, and proudly affiliated with and supported by the following parishes: St. Elizabeth Seton, St. Margaret Mary, St. Thomas the Apostle, Our Lady of Mercy, and Holy Spirit Catholic Church.
