Our family is a proud member of All Saints Academy. We have watched our children flourish in this small but mighty school. The faculty is amazing at helping students find their strengths and encourages for the areas that a student need development. The robotics program has been very strong and the recent additions of the hydroponic garden, Arduino and amazing for student to experience. The school encourages the older students to mentor the younger ages and everyone knows everyone's name. This school has been a great fit for my kids and I am grateful for the experience and education they are receiving.

All Saints is Newport County's STEAM Academy. It's a small school where big dreams come true. Students of all creeds, abilities and income levels are welcomed at ASA. Newport County has many private schools that are financially beyond the means of most families. ASA believes that any child who wants a Catholic or Christian education should receive it and they make it happen. Go Eagles!

I am a grandmother and have two grandchildren at All Saints Academy they are sister and brother in grades 4 & 5. Both have been at ASA since kindergarden and I have to say that I absolutely love the school. The classes are small so the children definately get individual attention. The academics are the finast in my opinion my grandchildren scored 95 & 97 on the national tests. For a small school they excelled in the robotics program on a national level and they have recently introduced hydroponics and set up a make shift greenhouse soliciting help from Salve Regina University. But above and beyound all that the MOST important aspect they teach is kindness and respect. They have an extremely strong focus on anti bullying. When I enter that school I am always greated by name and usually get a quick update or a funny story about something one of my grandkids did recently. It really feels like a family. My grandchildren absolutely love school anhd to me that says it all. As with many small private schools, money is typically an issue. I know that ASA could definately use funds and hopefully this very deserving small school will win.

All Saint's Academy (ASA) has been so welcoming, nuturing and definetely meets all of our needs. Our son has thrived at ASA and looks forward to school every day. There are no morning struggles...he loves the uniform and gleefully goes off for another exciting day. At the dinner table we hear all about the science project they worked on or what their "God-story' was for the day. We are impressed by the teachers, especially Miss Dawn in Pre-K! ASA's Pre-K program is second to none and thoroughly prepares your child for Kindergarten. Our son has performed in numerous Broadway-style theatrical performances and has gained a real sense of community. We love that ASA has embraced STEAM; there is no wait list to get into a charter school, plus, of course, the added benefit of religious studies = a well-rounded education...and child! There are a lot of activities for the entire family to enjoy together and the parent network is fabulous! If you are considering ASA, I cannot encourage you enough to just take a tour... take the first step towards enriching your child's education and sending your child to a truly exceptional school!

ASA is a caring community of dedicated teachers! Dr Finnegan is a great principle who cares about his staff and the children under his care. He is a principle who is involved with the children's daily lives at school. For a small private school they offer an extensive educational program with some fun extra curricular programs to, such as Lego Robotics, a hydroponics lab, Spanish, art etc I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a nurturing environment and a good education!

All Saints Academy has small classrooms so you get a lot of the teachers time. ASA is strong and advanced in STEM programs. This is a school that makes learning fun.

All Saints Academy is a small school with a big heart. The class sizes are small so the children get individualized attention and nobody slips through the cracks. The small class size allows the school to place children wherever their needs will best be met. The teachers are attentive to each student and there is good communication between parents and teachers. For a small organization, the school offers a wide variety of after school activities, many which have a STEM flavor. Many of the activities are made possible by the parents who volunteer their time.

All Saints Academy is a place where children can grow!!! Each year I watch my son thrive under the guidance of his teachers and everyone at the school. When Hillary Clinton said " It takes a village to raise a child" All Saints Academy became a perfect model for that statement. Everyone at the school helps with each stage of development and the school becomes your family. It is truly a warm and comfortable place where everyone walks in as strangers but leaves as friends/family. I know that the children coming from the school will be able to be a productive member of society as well as be able to give back to the community. It is also nice to be able to be in a school where God's word is not only taught but practiced. The children pray and learn how to show empathy and compassion for their fellow human beings. It is encourage to show kindness, and to give to each other and it is cool to be smart and kind. I only wish that every child could have the opportunity to attend such a school. I know that if every child could be raised in this environment the world would be a better place. All Saints Academy is the best school around with everyone smiling and happy. It is Great!!!

If your looking for a new school, relocating or moving to the area or just want to send your child to a place where they can grow and succeed, then All Saints Academy is the place for you. A small private school tucked away safely behind St. Lucy's church in Middletown, RI, this school offers small classes, an amazing dedicated and caring faculty, and one of the best Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) programs in the state. They are World Robotics Champions, thats right WORLD champions. The school offers state of the art technology to all of the students, new computers and smart boards in every classroom starting in PRE-K all the way through grade 8. We have been at this school for 3 years and my daughter looks forward every day to going to school. This school feels like a family from the day you start. If your looking for a caring, kind and nurturing environment for child come check out All Saints Academy, you find all that your looking for and more.

This school has been an incredible blessing to our family. We are a military family and the All Saints family has adopted us like we have lived here forever. We had experience with Ms. Gay (while she was doing preschool), Ms. Dawn (pre-K), and Mrs. Green(kindergarten). Each of these ladies was so gifted in bringing out the best in our kids (despite some rather infamous quirkiness!) and our kids loved their teachers and their time at ASA. In addition to wonderful teachers, the staff at ASA is second to none. Mrs. Klegraef in the front office, Mrs. Maloney, and Dr. Finnegan have all been so supportive of our kids and our family. I am more than a little sad that we can't take them with us to our next duty station! If you are looking for a top-notch education, you couldn't do better than All Saints.

My child lasted no more then 3 weeks in the ASA preschool program. When we 1st came to the school for registeration etc the staff was welcoming and attentive. Once our child attended all things went south. The teachers in his class are rude and mean. The schools communication skills lack if they have any sort of concern in my case toast as part of lunch they dont inform you til week or 2 later. I was given an attitude over what my son likes to eat for lunch. My son felt very uncomfortable going to school every time I would pull up stating the teachers are mean to him. This is a child in preschool I can just imagine how they treat the rest. If you are a parent considering this school for pre k run away and look elsewhere! The principle leaves alot to be desired. He has no compassion or wanted to even set anything up to find out whats going on and why his teachers are this way and why do they get away with it. It was like talking to a brick wall. I gave a months notice as courtesy they basically said no and "kicked us out asap" claiming they had other kids in waiting list. They just care about money and filling up spots. BEWARE OF THIS SCHOOL don't say you weren't warned!

Like others have stated Do your research!!!! Not a great INDEPENDANT school at all. Terrible experience with our daughter. School is def going downhill to say the least. Academics are NOT what they claim to be. They don't care about the students its all about the profits. They claim to be a christian school with faith but the way they treat kids and parents I'm surprised someone hasn't flipped on them yet. As previous poster stated the headmaster or principle is a joke he doesn't resolve anything he just is there for looks and has the most blank face when you speak to him he has no emotion unless of course you have money to give him then he is all smiles.

I would have to say that we were extremely disappointed with this school. Upon initial research, the staff was incredibly polite, kind, and attentive. Once our kids were in the school, this changed. We were not notified of events in which our child was struck in the face, for example (there were more than one). I agree with the cliques that were pre-existing. These were so overt and obvious that they impacted our straight A child's performance enough so that we changed schools after only one year. Other issues were related to an overall relegation of teacher's authority to the principal, who apparently dealt with even the most menial of conflicts (and still little to no notification to the parents). Having members of the staff at school functions literally "pretend they do not see" someone so as to avoid talking to them was embarrassing for all of us who see this type of action. Finally, they DO NOT do sacraments there. Although we were led to believe differently, the school is only affiliated with St. Lucy's church, and the program for sacraments is very cumbersome and not done through the school. ASA has a great potential. Unfortunately, it has failed to achieve.

ASA's curriculum is challenging and offers a very well-rounded education. Especially pleased with the spiritual/Christian focus of the school and how dedicated the teachers and staff are. I love how the older students mentor the children in the younger grades. Very welcoming and warm school. The principal and the staff is terrific. Very involved parents too!

ASA is outstanding school! The teachers, administration and parents are all very involved...our kids are thriving academically, socially and spiritually. Highly recommend ASA.

Unfortunately ASA was not a good fit for our kindergarten child. Granted, we transferred mid year, however the cliquey"ness" of the school was overtly apparent. While we found the office staff to be very inviting, helpful, and easy to communicate with, this was not the case for our specific teacher. Not only did we have inadequate communication, our child complained about the teachers yelling and kids constantly in trouble. I'm not sure if there is an actual discipline problem or too much emphasis on discipline for this age. As for academics, I can't really comment. We were not at ASA long enough to form a sound opinion however they did seem to lag from the previous private school we attended. The facility itself also seemed to be somewhat dated and drab; not conducive to an eager outlook on learning. Finally, I was told by another parent that parent involvement was minimal. I can't comment personally but it did play a factor in our decision to leave after only a few weeks. This was not the overall experience we hoped for, especially considering it's a private school.

My child attended 5th grade and struggled to be a C- student. Last year she attended 6th grade public school and made staight A's (same kid for those questioning her ability). Teachers were mediocre (both from personal interface and hear say). The now former principal was a nice guy but definetly an administrator-type. He promised everything during the school tour but did not come through. ASA had limited public assistance, perhaps that is a contributing issue.
