Hi Dr. Finnegan!
I wanted to let you know that we are so thankful for the year of Pre-K that our son, Jack, received while we lived in Newport, RI. He had Ms. Dawn Grinnell, as his teacher, and the exposure he had to sight words and all else has proven to have greatly paid off. Jack is now in kindergarten, and less than 2 months into the school year he has already tested through the 3rd grade sight words and is in his classroom’s advanced reading group. It is so wonderful that he enjoys reading and we can now concentrate on the comprehension. Math has also built up and he is now doing simple addition and going beyond the core standards.
We are so thrilled that ASA helped to give our son a great base to build upon in elementary.
Thanks for all you do!

All Saints Academy is the STEAM Magnet school for the diocese if Providence. From Pre-k to grade 8 all the kids are involved in activities associated with science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics leading to incredible academic gains and a better sense for where they might go in the direction of future careers. Outstanding in every way!
All Saints Academy promotes strong Christian values and establishes an environment for students to thrive in all areas of their lives. It has a very strong sense of community and students are positive and friendly to each other . Teachers are very good about communicating and working with parents as necessary to help each individual achieve their best. Extra curricular activities are abundant and very well run. I am proud to send my children to All Saints.
ASA is a wonderful school. It has made a big difference in my childs life. My child started there in Pre-K and contines to go there. There were some difficult times adjusting but the staff has always been there to help set him/her in the right direction. The school is there to help the children grow in the right direction. Highly recommend!
Our family is a proud member of All Saints Academy. We have watched our children flourish in this small but mighty school. The faculty is amazing at helping students find their strengths and encourages for the areas that a student need development. The robotics program has been very strong and the recent additions of the hydroponic garden, Arduino and amazing for student to experience. The school encourages the older students to mentor the younger ages and everyone knows everyone’s name. This school has been a great fit for my kids and I am grateful for the experience and education they are receiving.
All Saints is Newport County’s STEAM Academy. It’s a small school where big dreams come true. Students of all creeds, abilities and income levels are welcomed at ASA. Newport County has many private schools that are financially beyond the means of most families. ASA believes that any child who wants a Catholic or Christian education should receive it and they make it happen. Go Eagles!
The staff at All Saints Academy is superb, and the atmosphere is very welcoming and assuring. It teaches for wholeness and holiness.
I am a grandmother and have two grandchildren at All Saints Academy they are sister and brother in grades 4 & 5. Both have been at ASA since kindergarden and I have to say that I absolutely love the school. The classes are small so the children definately get individual attention. The academics are the finast in my opinion my grandchildren scored 95 & 97 on the national tests. For a small school they excelled in the robotics program on a national level and they have recently introduced hydroponics and set up a make shift greenhouse soliciting help from Salve Regina University. But above and beyound all that the MOST important aspect they teach is kindness and respect. They have an extremely strong focus on anti bullying. When I enter that school I am always greated by name and usually get a quick update or a funny story about something one of my grandkids did recently. It really feels like a family. My grandchildren absolutely love school anhd to me that says it all.
All Saint’s Academy (ASA) has been so welcoming, nuturing and definetely meets all of our needs. Our son has thrived at ASA and looks forward to school every day. There are no morning struggles…he loves the uniform and gleefully goes off for another exciting day. At the dinner table we hear all about the science project they worked on or what their “God-story’ was for the day. We are impressed by the teachers, especially Miss Dawn in Pre-K! ASA’s Pre-K program is second to none and thoroughly prepares your child for Kindergarten. Our son has performed in numerous Broadway-style theatrical performances and has gained a real sense of community. We love that ASA has embraced STEAM; there is no wait list to get into a charter school, plus, of course, the added benefit of religious studies = a well-rounded education…and child! There are a lot of activities for the entire family to enjoy together and the parent network is fabulous! If you are considering ASA, I cannot encourage you enough to just take a tour… take the first step towards enriching your child’s education and sending your child to a truly exceptional school!
ASA is a caring community of dedicated teachers! Dr Finnegan is a great principle who cares about his staff and the children under his care. He is a principle who is involved with the children’s daily lives at school. For a small private school they offer an extensive educational program with some fun extra curricular programs to, such as Lego Robotics, a hydroponics lab, Spanish, art etc I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a nurturing environment and a good education!
All Saints Academy has small classrooms so you get a lot of the teachers time. ASA is strong and advanced in STEAM programs. This is a school that makes learning fun.
All Saints Academy is a small school with a big heart. The class sizes are small so the children get individualized attention and nobody slips through the cracks. The small class size allows the school to place children wherever their needs will best be met. The teachers are attentive to each student and there is good communication between parents and teachers. For a small organization, the school offers a wide variety of after school activities, many which have a STEAM flavor. Many of the activities are made possible by the parents who volunteer their time.
All Saints Academy is a place where children can grow!!! Each year I watch my son thrive under the guidance of his teachers and everyone at the school. When Hillary Clinton said ” It takes a village to raise a child” All Saints Academy became a perfect model for that statement. Everyone at the school helps with each stage of development and the school becomes your family. It is truly a warm and comfortable place where everyone walks in as strangers but leaves as friends/family. I know that the children coming from the school will be able to be a productive member of society as well as be able to give back to the community. It is also nice to be able to be in a school where God’s word is not only taught but practiced. The children pray and learn how to show empathy and compassion for their fellow human beings. It is encourage to show kindness, and to give to each other and it is cool to be smart and kind. I only wish that every child could have the opportunity to attend such a school. I know that if every child could be raised in this environment the world would be a better place. All Saints Academy is the best school around with everyone smiling and happy. It is Great!!!
If your looking for a new school, relocating or moving to the area or just want to send your child to a place where they can grow and succeed, then All Saints Academy is the place for you. A small private school tucked away safely behind St. Lucy’s church in Middletown, RI, this school offers small classes, an amazing dedicated and caring faculty, and one of the best Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) programs in the state. They are World Robotics Champions, thats right WORLD champions. The school offers state of the art technology to all of the students, new computers and smart boards in every classroom starting in PRE-K all the way through grade 8. We have been at this school for 3 years and my daughter looks forward every day to going to school. This school feels like a family from the day you start. If your looking for a caring, kind and nurturing environment for child come check out All Saints Academy, you find all that your looking for and more.
This school has been an incredible blessing to our family. We are a military family and the All Saints family has adopted us like we have lived here forever. We had experience with Ms. Gay (while she was doing preschool), Ms. Dawn (pre-K), and Mrs. Green(kindergarten). Each of these ladies was so gifted in bringing out the best in our kids (despite some rather infamous quirkiness!) and our kids loved their teachers and their time at ASA. In addition to wonderful teachers, the staff at ASA is second to none. Mrs. Klegraef in the front office, Mrs. Maloney, and Dr. Finnegan have all been so supportive of our kids and our family. I am more than a little sad that we can’t take them with us to our next duty station! If you are looking for a top-notch education, you couldn’t do better than All Saints.

Dear Dr. Finnegan and Mrs. Klegraefe,
We just met with Ryan’s new school guidance counselor and she would like to have a copy of Ryan’s ASA transcript. Ryan would like to let Mrs. Villareal know that he received a 5 on his AP European History exam. Mrs. Brouse will be happy to know that there is a robotics class here at Naples High School. Ryan has already spoken with the teacher and he will likely be a TA this year with Engineering CAD, Robotics and other computer science classes. The class will learn about and build a trebuchet in Engineering CAD, which is what Ryan did for his science fair project at ASA. I give high praise to his foundations at ASA with the rigorous curriculum and his participation in 4 years of robotics. We cannot say enough about our time at ASA for both kids
