I am thrilled that you are exploring the various aspects of the All Saints educational experience. Our mission of educating the mind, body and spirit with values and principles based on the tenets and identity of the Episcopal Church sets us apart from our peer schools in East Texas. On this campus we lift up our students with equal enthusiasm whether they are conquering a complex mathematical equation, or learning to spike a volleyball for the first time, or even singing a new worship song during our chapel service.
At our core All Saints is about developing character. While our academic programs provide intellectual stimulation they simultaneously encourage students to find and use their God given gifts to make those around them better. We are truly blessed to have access to all 150 acres of the rolling hills and deep woods that comprise our campus and we have thoughtfully incorporated outdoor spaces into our daily routines.
One of the greatest strengths of our program is how well our graduates perform once they matriculate at a wonderful array of colleges and universities. Over the past five years, the average college freshman GPA for our students is 3.35! In contrast, National Department of Education lists the average first year college student GPA as 2.6. Indeed, our students are prepared to succeed.
While we encourage you to explore our program virtually on this web-site, nothing can replace the actual physical visit to our campus. We hope you feel inspired to take the next step in your journey of looking at All Saints and contact our admission office to arrange a personal tour and see and experience our community first hand. I look forward to seeing and meeting you on campus.
