The Center for Spiritual and Ethical Education has recognized All Saints’ Day School for excellence in ethical education.
"We are deeply honored to receive this award,” said Michele Rench, head of school. “We continuously strive to inspire All Saints’ students to build lives of purpose and service, and we greatly appreciate CSEE's recognition of our program.”
All Saints’ is private, Episcopal school with grades Pre-K through Grade 8. Tuition costs $19,000 a year for grades 1 through 8. About 220 students attend. The school committed to developing character with both depth and breadth.
The Center for Spiritual and Ethical Education noted three facets of the school's commitment to character:
• Commitment to professional development
• The Bean Program, now in its 20th year at ASDS, is integral to life at All Saints’. This service learning project involves a well-organized group of students breaking down large bags of pinto beans into 4-pound parcels to be distributed to needy families in the Salinas Valley.
• The All Saints’ buddies program pairs older students with younger ones. The program fosters relationships, gives younger children an older student to look up to, and encourages older students to play a meaningful role in the furthering of All Saints’ culture.
