It is our students who make the All Saints Upper School unique. Whether “lifers” who have been at ASA throughout their educational career or those who join us in ninth grade, ASA students are the most compelling representation of the school’s mission: independent thinkers, principled leaders, and humble learners.
Learning opportunities inside and outside the classroom are designed to challenge students to think independently, whether that be designing a new shopping cart for Publix as part of an Innovation Studio or engaging in a Harkness table discussion in English. The learner of today must be prepared to think critically and take responsibility for learning that is far beyond “The Basics” of the last century. It is intentional that our students are “humble learners” at the same time they are excited, confident, and inspired learners. Students are mentored as leaders and regularly point to their strong relationships with faculty and coaches as the hallmark of their ASA experience.
Community partnerships, numerous opportunities to present both within and outside the ASA community, and service work that take students out of their comfort zone, all help to develop leaders of high principles. Whether in the classroom, athletic field, or the arts, ASA students have the opportunity for leadership unique to a small school.
We are proud of our legacy of 100% college acceptance, and we take greatest pride in the success of our graduates. ASA graduates regularly share stories of success in college and point to the skills and confidence earned at ASA as the key to that success.
All Saints Academy welcomes students of all backgrounds. Our students leave with a shared desire to make a difference and the confidence to know they have the tools to be difference makers. It is my daily joy to take part in that process. Witnessing the transformations our students make through the high school years never ceases to fill me with pride and optimism.
All the Best,
Head of Upper School
