All Saints Cathedral School (ASCS), founded in 1928 by Saint Anne’s Sisters, is an Episcopal, college preparatory day school enrolling boys and girls in Junior Kindergarten through Grade 12.

In the environment arising from the union of church and school, ASCS seeks to nurture the spiritual and social growth as well as the intellectual development of each and every student.

ASCS emphasizes the importance of moral and ethical behavior and maintaining harmonious relationships within its very diverse community.

ASCS is a school where excellence, diversity, and community are not mere words, but concepts which guide us daily.

Our student programs provide a complete educational experience comprising academics, community service, extracurricular activities, and sport programs.

The school campus, located within walking distance to historic downtown Charlotte Amalie, consists of church offices, school offices, a counseling center, a library, a cafeteria/parish hall, instructional areas, and two playgrounds.

The All Saints Cathedral, a historic landmark dating back to 1848, is located in the center of the campus and is used for weekly Mass and chapel, assemblies and graduation.

The ultimate responsibility of ASCS is to impart to its students the intellectual and moral background to enable them to become responsible citizens and leaders in their community and society in general.

The school recognizes the worth and dignity of each student and encourages the development of each individual’s potential.

To this end, our school, in conjunction with the Cathedral Church of All Saints, (the “Church”), seeks to maintain gradually increasing standards of academic achievement, of behavior that is respectful of self and others, and an awareness of civic responsibility.

As a private, parochial, preparatory school, the ASCS’s curriculum is oriented towards high achievement throughout all the grade levels, climaxing in the college entrance exams.

There is also a strong emphasis on moral and ethical behavior and on maintaining harmonious relationships within our diverse society.

Thus, through its philosophy, ASCS recognizes the complexity of society, and as such, promotes the intellectual, spiritual, and social growth of young minds so that they may contribute positively to their environment.

The administration, faculty and staff, student body and community are genuinely committed to the dynamic realization and the materialization of the goals as stated in the philosophy.
