All Saints Catholic Academy is paving the way for academic learning on a global scale by introducing students to relevant topics. Rockford families have a growing awareness of global social justice and environmental issues. In addition to classroom instruction, your child will learn about the cultures and customs of our eight supporting parishes. Covering the central, west, and south side of Rockford, our parishes celebrate feast days, honor traditions, and model spiritual communities for our students.
You might be familiar with STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programs. All Saints Catholic Academy of Rockford, IL has taken child education to the next level by adding courses in the arts and religion.

Art – In Mrs. Pierce’s classroom, her mission is to create a fun, safe, and inspiring environment for all students to explore all aspects of different mediums and visual art. Her goal is to build their self-confidence as they grow into creative thinkers and lifelong learners.
PreK – The preschool program at ASCA offers a warm, caring Christian environment in which the children get to know each other, learn to play, work together, and make friends. The class curriculum is created with the age of the student in mind - 3 year olds follow a program designed for them while the 4 year olds follow a curriculum for four year olds. The goal of both programs is to develop language, literacy, and math skills, alongside science, social studies, and art lessons and social development. Programs work to progressively prepare children for the next level of school, three year olds preparing for the four year old program and four year olds preparing for kindergarten. Both programs include teaching the Catholic religion through Bible stories and prayer. PreK students attend weekly mass with their fellow All Saints students.

Middle School Religion and English– Miss Peters:
Religion: Middle School is a time for students to grow in their faith. Sixth Graders learn more about God as they read the stories of the Old Testament. Exploring the four Gospels enables Seventh Graders to learn more about the life of Jesus. As Eighth Graders, students learn about the Church and the role of the Holy Spirit. Participating in service projects, altar serving, and being prayer leaders gives Middle School students many opportunities to put their faith into action.
English: Middle School is a time for students to strengthen and practice the foundational skills for writing, speaking, and listening. Students utilize the conventions of writing to produce different forms of writing using the writing process and the six traits of writing. Participating in a variety of activities gives Middle School students many opportunities to put into action speaking and listening skills.
