Admissions Policy and Criteria

All Saints' Episcopal School (ASES) seeks to enroll children who will benefit from its values, purposes and programs, and who will contribute to the school and its philosophy through an active interest in learning, a sense of responsibility, their general attitude,and the care they show for others.
ASES admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, financial aid, or other school-administered programs.  
Applications of those children who satisfy the requirements of admission, but for whom no space is immediately available, will be kept in an active applicant file to fill places as they occur during the year.
Available financial aid is awarded solely on the basis of demonstrated financial need. Further information regarding financial aid may be obtained from Nikki Wills, Assistant to the Headmaster and Director of Admission. You may call her at (423) 586-3280 or email:
