All Saints Catholic Academy Reviews
Previously my child was at a local Montessori school, which I was pleased with but found it too costly. She moved to All Saints this year. I've been amazed at the quality of the work she is doing. She loves her teachers, and I really like how her teachers reinforce manners, courtesy, and kindness. The good habits she is picking up there are definitely showing in her behavior at home. I almost fell over yesterday when she cleaned up her toys without me having to ask.
We transferred two children from the local public school and have found the school to be significantly more challenging than the schools they came from.
All Saints also has football, basketball, track, volleyball and cheer for 4th-8th grade.
This school is great. My child transferred from public school with no homework or books to this school which has books, homework every night, e-mails from the teachers to clearly let the parents know what is due every week. My child is learning powerpoint, spanish, and is at the grade above her former classmates at the public shool.
So far our experience has been disappointing. Teachers are very disrespectful, rude and have no clear agenda what they are teaching to kids. Very disappointing. Think twice about sending your kids to All Saints Academy.
This is an amazing school. The teachers are very firm, yet caring. My son struggles academically and the teachers have gone above and beyond to help him reach his goals. He gets special help in reading and math all as part of the tuition, without an IEP. In the public school system, I would have to fight to get everything he has received from All Saints. At All Saints, I did not even have to ASK for him to get extra help- they were ready to give it freely out of kindness. There are always fun events at the school and chances to meet people with strong values and beliefs about faith and family. Yes, tuition is costly, but definitely worth every penny. I am a single mother, only making 35,000 a year, and it is still affordable. Dr. Renehan, the principal, is very accessible and not "hidden behind closed doors." She is always there to say hello or answer questions, especially in the morning at line up time. The teachers are very connected with parents and not afraid to tell you when your child is doing well and also when your child's behavior needs some correction. All Saints may not have tons of sports opportunities, but there are plenty of local hockey or baseball etc. park teams to fill your need for kid friendly sports. The academic reputation of the school is more important to me than the sports. Wonderful school, would not change a thing!
As a parent of three children who attend All Saints Catholic Academy, I am very pleased with the academic program. It can be challenging for some students; however, we have seen great results and are quite happy with ASCA. Since it is a private school, fundraising is necessary to fill in any budgetary gaps, so be prepared to shell out a few hundred dollars each year. As for the sports comments...well, its interesting to see where various parents place their priorities. As of 2009, the athletic department has basketball, volleyball and is partnered with St. Raphael for football. Soon ASCA will field its own football team.
All Saints has been a very positive experience for our family. As with any establishment, there are going to be some up & downs. Dr. Renehan, the principal, has extended our family the same courtesy as every family. In other words, there are no "favorites" at this school, and that's rare for a Catholic school. Her main focus is to see each child grow academically & spiritually. And yes, it's taken some time to form an athletic program, however it's in the works. I feel confident as a parent that we will have a successful athletic program. And that's huge for us, as we're a big football family. I feel blessed that my children are surrounded by loving & firm teachers, who are instilling core values into our kids lives. It certainly does take a village to raise a child today.
All Saints Catholic Academy is very racist. Some of the teachers are rude and they don't prepare your child for anything at all -- they just care about their money. And no sports....
Horrible school. If you want your child to go to a catholic school in Naperville definitely go to Saints Peter and Paul or Saint Raphael. This school has no sports opportunities and no extracurricular classes. It will not prepare your child for high school at all.
