All Saints Academy

Middletown, R.I.

Press Release for Expanded STEAM Programming


All Saints Academy is pleased to announce their partnership with FabNewport in the delivering of its technology curriculum. FabNewport is a developing Fablab at the Florence Gray Center in Newport, Rhode Island. Like the staff at ASA, FabNewport is interested in empowering learners to master powerful technology and develop a growth mindset. FabNewport’s teaching practice is grounded in the notion that learning occurs through play, play grows into passion and passion leads to purpose. FabNewport staff meets regularly with All Saints students, in grades pre-k to 8, in the delivery of the school’s mastery technolgy curriculum as well as providing professional development opportunities for teaching staff.

In addition, given its belief in the utilization of community resources in the education of the individual child, All Saints Academy has continued to partner with Salve and Johnson & Wales Universities and Umass Lowell in the implementation, instruction and monitoring of their hydroponics program. Roger Williams University has been very helpful in teaching ASA students about the process of the development of useful computer applications programs. Rhode Island College has also been a critical friend in the success of helping ASA teachers, in grades k-2 ,use I-Pads for teaching basic computer programming using Scratch software.
