Benefits of a Catholic Education
At ASCS, we believe that through the religion curriculum, faculty can relate the social and ethical concerns of humanity to a well-rounded education.
The primary reasons that parents give for sending their children to Catholic school are:
- academic excellence
- emphasis on Catholic values
- healthy social relationships
- a supportive environment
By focusing academics around a deeper spiritual view of the world around us, students develop an inner sense of moral responsibility. They learn the value of devoting time to charity, treating others with respect, and listening for God’s guidance in their life choices.
We instruct students in a combination of religion, science, reading, language arts, math, foreign language, art, and many other curriculums. Therefore, each student becomes diverse in their knowledge, yet grounded in a framework of faith. All Saints is family-oriented community that excels in academic excellence.
At All Saints students will find:
College-bound peers – The vast majority, approximately 95% of Catholic school graduates, pursue higher education. Catholic School graduates are often pursued by prestigious colleges.
A rigorous curriculum – Students are prepared for a changing world by equipping them with the knowledge and skills necessary to ask constructive questions, critically solve problems, apply technology and work cooperatively with others.
Self-discipline – Students are expected to accept responsibility for their actions, to respect others and to make good decisions in the context of their faith experience.
Christ as a model – The goal of a Catholic education is to help children mature into Christ-like people. Students are encouraged to recognize the presence of Christ in themselves and others. The religious formation of children begun at home is continued in Catholic school.
A safe, supportive environment – Reverence for the human dignity of every person comes from recognizing Christ in self and others. More than “Drug-free zones” or “Gun-free zones,” Catholic schools strive to be “Christ-centered zones.”
High expectations – Catholic school teachers expect every student to achieve to their highest potential.
Committed parents – Parents are a child’s first teachers. At Catholic schools, parents take an active role in their children’s education. The school supports families and works with them for the benefit of children.
A caring community – Catholic school parents provide hundreds of millions of volunteer service hours to their schools. Parents assist with everything from lunchtime supervision, field trips and putting band-aids on skinned knees, to raising funds, installing computer networks and building new schools.
