All Saints Episcopal School: Located in Tyler, Texas, midway between Dallas and Shreveport, All Saints is a co-ed independent day school of approximately 700 students in grades 3K - 12. Founded by Christ Episcopal Church in 1976, the school enjoyed rapid growth and is among a premier group of college preparatory schools in East Texas, and the only one accredited by the Independent School Association of the Southwest and an NAIS member. All graduates matriculate to colleges or universities, many among the most selective in the nation. Much of the school’s success may be attributed to effective advancement work which rapidly grew enrollment to over 700 in the last decade and secured a 150 acre campus and funded state of the art facilities.
In the spirit of “bricks and mortar do not a school make,” All Saints’ great strength is the tremendous passion the educators, students, parents, friends, and trustees have for the school. It is a wonderful school and community in which to work and a great opportunity for new faculty. All Saints Episcopal School does not discriminate on the basis of age, gender, race, religion, disability, or national origin.
