Lower School Kindergarten - 2nd

All Saints' Primary School provides a setting, which encourages independent study habits and academic growth. 

Our goal is for students to be physically, emotionally, and spiritually ready for the challenges of the upper grades while offering an academically rigorous integrated curriculum.

 

Elementary School students are encouraged to honor, respect, and love God and others in an intellectually stimulating, and culturally diverse community.
