November 2017 – All Saints’ Episcopal School is excited to announce its Mission 51 Scholarship Fund available now for new students. Mission 51 is a partnership among private foundations and deserving families who desire the “enriching minds, nurturing hearts” educational approach offered at All Saints’. Funding is provided by private foundations who recognize the importance of education and believe in the benefits of a smaller class, personalized learning academic environment.
Mission 51 was created to respond to current national trends, where 36%-50% of students educated in an independent school receive some form of financial assistance. This school year, 53% of the All Saints’ students receive financial support to attend. “Throughout our fifty year history we have always provided fiscal support to families in need,” states ASES Board Chairman Sam Neill. “The core belief as Christians is that financial limitations should not be the road block for families wanting to educate their children in an independent school.” Mission 51 now expands the opportunity to Lakeway families, recognizing that changing a child’s desk can transform their future.
“A school experience should be inspiring. When the educational process occurs in a nurturing Christian environment, children develop not only knowledge but confidence,” states Head of School, Mark Workman. “We provide an environment that allows students to excel in the academics while balancing enrichment programs so children can, like our Mission Statement promises, discover their full potential.”
The LEAP (Learning, Enriching, & Advancing Promise) Scholarship, a part of the Mission 51 Scholarship Fund, offers 50% tuition discount opportunities for new students, with additional needs-based financial support available on a per case situation. This Scholarship is provided for the recipients throughout their continuous education at ASES and is available to new students in Kindergarten through eighth grade. Separate from All Saints’ traditional financial aid through their third-party TADS (Tuition Assistance Data Service) program, families complete the Mission 51 application process. LEAP Scholarships are a first-come, first-serve basis.
“Mission 51’s LEAP Scholarship is an incredible opportunity to make an All Saints’ education accessible to students who could not otherwise afford a tuition-based education,” shares Director of Admissions, Annemarie Spain. “The benefits of personalized learning in a smaller class will carry on throughout their lives.”
Investing in an All Saints’ education includes challenging academics, differentiated learning, smaller class sizes with less distractions, and a faith-based community. In addition, students attend daily and weekly enrichment classes in art, music, Chapel, PE, library and Spanish to provide a full learning experience. The Early Learning Center participates weekly in PE, Spanish and Chapel. “God’s Bounty” Garden and Outdoor Classroom is an important part of the hands-on learning for all students. To further nurture skills, students may also participate in the many athletics, clubs, and field trip experiences offered throughout the school year. Before-and-after care is available to all students.
All Saints’ continues to offer 25% discounts for all public school and higher education instructors and church employees and clergy. All Saints’ is an independent, Christian school that has maintained a record of exemplary education since they opened their doors fifty years ago.
