All Saints Catholic School is located north of Locust Street on the corner of Marquette. We serve 383 students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.
Our students, teachers, parents and pastors work together to create a warm and welcoming environment that is immediately felt upon entering the building. Every school has a niche and something the school is particularly good at and proud of.
All Saints is a school of both ethnic and economic diversity. We are extremely proud that our students learn and grow in a diverse and positive environment. Students learn to cooperate and work with peers who come from a variety of backgrounds, learning to live and influence the community and world through cooperation and love.
All Saints teachers participate in regular staff development through the Area Education Association, the Diocese of Davenport, and through a partnership with St. Ambrose University in Davenport. As a result, our students receive outstanding academic instruction along with a solid spiritual foundation that will reach out to many generations to come. Students take part in instrumental music, vocal music, visual arts and foreign language instruction, and many go on to receive college scholarships in the arts.
If you haven’t considered Catholic education, I encourage you to look into attending any one of our schools. Scott County Catholic Schools offer day care, pre-kindergarten through eighth grade at All Saints, John F. Kennedy and St. Paul the Apostle in Davenport, and Lourdes in Bettendorf, in addition to an outstanding high school education at Assumption in Davenport, and undergraduate and graduate degrees through St. Ambrose.
