Faith Based Education
All Saints Academy Catholic School is a Pre-kindergarten through eighth-grade school within the Diocese of Belleville. Located on two campuses on the grounds of Saint Dominic Church and Saint Augustine Church. The Saint Augustine campus houses pre-kindergarten through first grades, while the Saint Dominic Campus houses second through eighth grades. Although we are on two campuses, we work together to form one All Saints Academy Catholic School community.
All Saints Academy Catholic School is the place where learning and faith go hand-in-hand. We work diligently to create a welcoming culture of support and academic excellence by providing students and their families with an education that fits them, all while keeping our Catholic faith at the forefront.
All Saints Academy Catholic School is committed to being one of the best schools in Clinton County and the Diocese of Belleville. The students and their families, faculty, and staff live the mission of the Gospels daily. As a school family, we provide our students with an education rooted in our Catholic faith, a solid academic foundation, all while instilling the love of learning.
Our Mission Statement
All Saints Academy provides a Catholic and quality academic education to families of St. Augustine, St. Anthony, St. Dominic Parishes, to families of neighboring parishes, and to others who desire such an education.
The spiritual, mental, physical, and social development of each child is the core of All Saints Academy. The school encourages students to gain a deeper understanding of church tenets, Christian and family attitudes, and their relationship with God, nature, and all humanity.

This religious education program will be experienced using a systemized approach over an eight-year period. The students will be prepared for the sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation, for the involvement in parish ministry.
Classes meet every Wednesday, beginning at 6:30pm. Students are expected to be in their classroom at this time for attendance and prayer. Doors open at 6:15pm. Students are to remain in the center hallway until their teacher is present. Classes dismiss at 7:45pm. We ask that parents or an older sibling accompany first and second grade students from their classrooms at the end of the evening.
St. Dominic, St. Augustine & St. Anthony’s Parish Religion Program was developed to assist parents in providing a Catholic faith foundation for the children of the parishes who attend the public school. Their faith journey will be patterned on the life of Jesus Christ and on Catholic values including worship/prayer, service, morality/social justice, and our Church’s history from the New and Old Testaments.
