Our beautiful setting above the Carmel River, with playgrounds, spacious fields, and the organic garden, inspires creativity and enables our students to do their best, both in and out of the classroom. Our graduates are well-prepared and eager for the challenges of high school and beyond.

Frequently Asked Questions

List of 6 frequently asked questions.

  • When is the best time to start the admission process?

    The ideal time to start is during the fall or winter months prior to the school year you wish your child to enter. There may be openings for new students during the spring and summer months. Please contact our admissions office at for more information.
  • Does All Saints accept applications after the stated deadline?

    Applications are accepted after the stated deadline (February 1, 2022) and applicants are screened based on space available at the desired grade levels. Please see How to Apply.
  • What is All Saints looking for in a prospective student?

    All Saints is seeking students who are intellectually curious and who will flourish in our community as they are inspired to discover their talents and passions. All Saints students are surrounded by the opportunities inherent in our challenging academic program, our many fine and performing arts offerings, our sports teams, and leadership roles, and we are looking for applicants who will thrive in this environment. We welcome students of all races, cultures, religions, and socio-economic backgrounds.
  • How does All Saints differ from a public school?

    All Saints is a not-for-profit educational institution guided by its mission and governed by a voluntary Board of Trustees. Being an independent school, it not only meets and exceeds the California State Standards, but it also retains the right to enrich its own curriculum through the arts, technology and more. Funded by tuition and charitable contributions, All Saints receives no public funds and has control over the education which is provided.
    Class sizes tend to be smaller than those in public schools, with students receiving more individualized attention. The National Educational Longitudinal Study (NELS), conducted by the U.S. Department of Education, reveals that larger percentages of students in independent schools are enrolled in advanced courses than in public, parochial, and other private schools and students go on to enroll in college at higher rates. They are also more likely to volunteer and become involved as citizens.
    All Saints Day School meets the high accreditation standards of the National Association of Independent Schools NAIS and the California Association of Independent Schools CAIS.        
  • Does All Saints offer tuition assistance?

    No student or family should hesitate to apply for admission because of their inability to pay the entire cost. All Saints Day School is committed to making quality education accessible to all students, regardless of their financial circumstances.
    Our Variable Tuition Program
    is available and is granted based on a family’s need. You can learn more by visiting Affording All Saints.
  • What schools do graduates attend after All Saints?

    Our students do extremely well in high school admission placement. Many of our All Saints graduates are accepted into and attend one of the local independent high schools. Some students attend independent boarding schools, primarily on the East Coast, and others attend local public and parochial high schools.
