Welcome New Families!
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 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.
ALL ARE TRULY WELCOME at All Saints!

Order of Acceptance
All Saints Catholic Academy is a multiple parish-supported school. The order of acceptance for students is outlined below. 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 stay in good standing with their parish and school.
The order of acceptance will be:
- Siblings of current families.
- Children of All Saints Alumni.
- Children who are transferring from a Catholic school which has closed.
- New families belonging to sponsoring and supporting parishes (Saint Elizabeth Seton, Saint Margaret Mary, Saint Thomas the Apostle, Holy Spirit Catholic Community 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.

Tuition Transfer Grant
All Saints is pleased to offer a Tuition Transfer Grant to any family who transfers their child into grades 1-7 from any local private*, public, charter or home school. With this two-year grant, families will receive $1,000 per student in year one, and $500 per student in year two, which will be applied to offset the current school tuition. Families with more than one K-8 student must choose either the Tuition Transfer Grant, or the Multiple Child Discount. If a student transfers after the school year begins, the first year will be prorated. Please click here for more information on the Tuition Transfer Grant. *Students transferring from another Catholic school within the Dioceses of Joliet, Peoria, Rockford, Springfield and the Archdiocese of Chicago are not eligible.
At All Saints Catholic Academy, our advanced curriculum exceeds state and diocesan standards, with our students consistently performing in the top 25% of standardized testing. Our degreed, certified and licensed faculty is dedicated to maximizing each child’s God given potential in a nurturing, family atmosphere. With our smaller class sizes, longer school day (8am – 3:30pm), and many curricular and extracurricular activities, your child will have a greater opportunity to excel.
Referrals of New Students
There is so much to celebrate at ASCA. We hope that you feel that way too! The most successful way that All Saints attracts new students and families is not through newspaper ads or social media. It is not through signs, banners, or our website.
It is through word of mouth. It is through our families sharing all of the great things that are happening here at All Saints with friends, neighbors, and other potential new students. We like to say that happy school families bring us more happy school families.
How Can You Help?
Please consider sharing what you love about ASCA with a friend, and then personally invite them to inquire about All Saints, or schdule a tour or shadow opportunity. Families who refer a new school family to ASCA may potentially earn a $250 credit toward their FFO (Family Fundraising Obligation).
So, don’t be shy. We wouldn’t even consider it boastful or rude. Share what you love about All Saints with a friend, and invite them to find out more about how All Saints might be a great fit for them.
