All Saints Catholic School is blessed to be enriched and supported by three Davenport parishes. The pastors and parishioners of Holy Family Parish, Sacred Heart Cathedral Parish and St. Alphonsus Parish formed All Saints Catholic School in 2004. St. Anthony’s Parish is also an economic supporter of our Catholic school program.
The students and families they represent reflect the growing diversity of the Davenport community. In 2011-2012, All Saints has a student enrollment of 352 in grades K-8. All Saints also has a preschool program with an enrollment of 49.
Our professional teachers and support staffers are committed to the values and personalization that make a Catholic education at All Saints unique. Our students are serious about their studies and they find the adult support they need to be successful. Our daily prayers, weekly school celebration of Mass, and concern and care for each other are benchmarks of our school family at All Saints.
This year we also received a $40,000 competitive grant from Scott County Regional Authority to institute a state-of-the-art interactive Microsoft Mouse Learning Environment in each of our 18 classrooms. We are also moving forward with SMART boards and other technological adaptations to enhance student lifelong learning.
Parent involvement in our school is a focus of each child’s education. All Saints is committed to the home and school relationship. We continue to invite families to come and visit us. We are proud of our school and the work we do together as staff, students, parents, pastors, parishioners and volunteers. This is our school and we are proud to be All Saints Catholic School.
