- ASCA educates children from pre-school through 8th grade. All Saints Catholic Academy was the first new Catholic school to open in the Diocese of Joliet in over 40 years.

Since 2005, All Saints Catholic Academy opened its doors with mission to teach and challenge each student as a child of God to nurture and grow academically, in faith, surrounded by teachers, staff and classmates who love and care for one another. All Saints is a second home to our children. My husband and I are blessed to have a school that continues to strive to be the best school for all. Our children always are happy and have learned to be leaders within their school and communities as confident young people of faith. Great school!!

Coming from a small town I was overwhelmed with the size of our districted school and wanted something more intimate for our family. After multiple tours of various private schools in Naperville, we chose All Saints for various reasons. All Saints welcomed us from the beginning with friendly, open arms. We loved the class size, the caring staff, and the ability for parent involvement in and outside the classroom. This is our 2nd year at All Saints and our son has thrived. Not only has he learned so much, he comes home happy and enthusiastic. Although not Catholic, we appreciate the faith-based learning that teaches love. We enjoy the conversations discussing the parallels of our faith and the Catholic tradition.

My family has been a part of the All Saints family now for the last five years. We could not be happier with the personal attention, educational rigor, and Catholic morals our children are learning. The teachers, staff, admin, and other families at ASCA are second to none! We are so proud to be a part of such an outstanding educational institution for learning.

We have been a part of the All Saints community since its inception and couldn't be happier with both the academic and spiritual development of our children. In a hectic and competitive world, it is a comfort to be a part of a community that is focused on supporting the development of not only the academic ability, but also the character of each student. We couldn't be more grateful for the many years we've been a part of All Saints!

We couldn't be happier with our experiences here at All Saint. The teachers and administration do a great job of keeping parents informed. Our children have already demonstrated the benefits of learning in a strong faith based environment and we have enjoyed getting to know the other parents.We are very happy with our choice to send our kids to All Saints.

I cannot speak highly enough of this school. My son is in Third Grade and has been a part of "ASCA" for three years (Grades One, Two and Three) and he has loved each year, had amazing teachers and learned so much each year doing Math and Reading at two grade levels higher than his actual grade level. Teachers have demonstrated great teaching techniques, manage the classroom effectively, give appropriate amounts of homework, communicate well with parents and have taught my son well. The (new) Leadership in the school has committed itself to enhancing communication, developing strong and consistent disciplined, has focused on professional development of its teachers and has a most compelling vision for the future of this school. I am very happy that this school has a well-rounded approach and has helped the development of my son physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually through both curricular and extra-curricular opportunities.

Excellent school. Our first child attended years ago.. the teaching staff was excellent and he flourished. Years later with our other children we decided on a different school and it was never good enough because we started with expectations based on how well our first child was taught. Needless to say we transferred back to All Saints, and for the last couple of years we have never been happier with the school. The administration has found a way to make it easy for working parents like us with the after care hours for ALL students, even preschool. The teachers have been great. My kids come home with homework that is reinforcing what was learned, we do not spend evenings with me or my husband having to reteach the concepts like before. Lastly, we are also thoroughly impressed with the many extracurricular opportunities that are available (sports, science, cooking, art, etc). They even have Robotics this year. Excellent school, excellent choice.

Private school tuition seems to go nowhere but up. We look at some of the reasons why and offer the opinion that a private school education is still good value.
It seems to be highly likely that the COVID-19 virus will spread to the United States. We look at step schools and parents can take to protect themselves from this highly contagious virus.
This article aggregates all the articles I have written about running a small private school. Use it as a handbook and a reminder of things you should look at from time to time.
