History

All Saints' Episcopal School, which was known as All Saints' Day School for the first thirty-three years of its existence, was established in 1967 by church parishioners,who were seeking an education alternative for their children. At the time, there were no public pre-schools or kindergartens, so they set out to create their own. The parents met at the home of Jim and Sara Gose, and developed the first plans for a school. They later implemented their ideas under Father Jim Patrick's supervision. At first, All Saints' was only a preschool for three- and four-year olds, expanding to include a five-year-old program one year later in 1968.
 
As requests for higher grade levels increased over the years, All Saints' Day School added a first grade in 1985. Two years later, in 1987, the school expanded to include second, third, and fourth grades. This growth sparked the acquisition of the Boxmoor campus. At this time, Father Charles Roberts was the headmaster. After the move to Boxmoor, one grade was added each year until a full complement of eight grades was reached, in 1992.
 
 
 

Enrollment continued to grow, and once again parents and staff began dreaming of an
additional school expansion. Early in 1998, 40 acres of land for a new building was purchased and the building campaign "On Good Ground" was begun. After raising $1.7 million dollars, ground was broken on a new schoolhouse in 1999. In 2000, leaders of the church and school decided that it was the best interest of both for the school to incorporate as a separate entity. The school is now governed by its own volunteer board of trustees and retains close ties with its parent church. The move to the Maple Valley Campus began in January of 2002 with the elementary school and was completed in the fall of 2003 when the Early Learning Center opened its doors.

The students who currently attend All Saints' Episcopal School are very thankful to the parents of the 60's whose vision was made a reality. We all look forward to the next phase of All Saints' development.
