Nurse Our licensed school nurse is Emily Grantham. She has worked at All Saints' for 3 years and this is her 20th year as a nurse. Mrs. Grantham has a Master of Science in Healthcare Administration. Pleas contact her with any questions or concerns about your child's health. (

Non-Profit Status All Saints' Episcopal Day School is a not for profit organization (501(c)3) which operates without any local, state, or federal funding. Like all independent schools, All Saints' relies solely on tuition income and broad voluntary financial support to meet its financial needs. This financial support includes income from the Annual Fund, fund raisers, Capital Campaigns, and the Endowment Fund. Over the last six decades, many donors have played a significant role in the financial well-being of our school through their gifts to these funds. All Saints' parents, the School Board, faculty and staff, alumni, grandparents, and other school friends have generously supported the needs of the school and ensured that all children can have the best possible academic experience. Thank you for your support! Click here to make a donation to the Annual Fund.

Scoring in the top 25% nationally overall is sold achievement and reflects well on both our students and teachers.
