Children often spend more time in schools and extracurricular activities than with their families or churches. By the time a student graduates high school, they will have spent approximately 12,000 hours immersed in a particular worldview that will have formed their habits, desires, character, and values. In short, wherever your child is educated (home school, government school, private school), that is where they are most being discipled – for better or for worse.
All Saints Academy exists because we believe every Christian family ought to have access to a robust Christian education. Paul instructs fathers to bring up their children in the discipline and paideia of the Lord (Eph. 6:4). The Greek word paideia (often translated “education” or “upbringing”) connotes much more than what is taught in a classroom. It is about a whole way of life under the Lordship of Jesus. At All Saints Academy, students are taught to see all things in relationship to Christ – whether science, math, art, music, and language (Col. 1:17). Jesus has something to say about every subject because every subject is ultimately subject to him. Abraham Kuyper famously said, “There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry: 'Mine!'”
We seek to provide an education which is not just about informing the mind, but forming the soul of students. Education is not primarily about job-readiness or college-placement (though graduates of Classical Christian schools tend to excel in both). Jesus said, “Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness” and then “all of these things will be added to you” (Matt. 6:33). We believe in education that takes Jesus at his word.
All Saints Academy offers a Christ-centered education, in the Classical tradition. Classical education trains students how to think, not simply what to think. We are a 4-day model (Mon-Thur). Students begin in Chapel before being dismissed to morning classes. Our faculty consist of gifted instructors who love the Lord and offer a small teacher/student ratio (approx. 1:12). The culture of the school is maintained through an emphasis on Christian living, virtue formation, and a community ethos.
By God's grace, All Saints Academy opened in 2022 and currently partner with families from over 35 churches throughout Kitsap County.
