All Saints Catholic School was established in March of 1990 when the Most Reverend Edward M. Egan, Bishop of the Diocese of Bridgeport, announced the merger of the three Norwalk Catholic elementary schools and the closing of Central Catholic High School. On July 1, 1990, the newly formed regional school was officially located in the facility that had been Central Catholic High School.
All Saints Catholic School opened in September 1990 with an enrollment of 515 students in Preschool to Grade 8. With the closing of Assumption School in Westport in June 1991, the Norwalk region expanded beyond the seven parishes in Norwalk to include the two parishes in Westport.
Another distinction occurred in 1994 when All Saints Catholic School became the first Catholic elementary school in the Diocese of Bridgeport to be accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. A capital campaign in 1999 yielded a major addition of three new classrooms and the renovation of the Art, Science, Music and Computer rooms. In 2006, the Library Media Center was completely renovated, and is completely wireless and automated with laptop computers, a whiteboard, and a full-time library media specialist on staff. In 2009, the computer lab was renovated, and each year since, new technology, including Interactive smart boards, Elmo document cameras, an iPad cart, and Chromebooks have been added to keep technology current.
Two Boards, each with different functions, insure that the mission of All Saints Catholic School is lived out in a truly caring, Christian environment.
The School Advisory Board is comprised of both alumni, alumni parents, and community members who have been invited to serve on this Board. Members of this Board chair and serve on one or two of the following committees: Finance, Plant & Grounds, Marketing and Technology. This Board has limited jurisdiction.
The Home School Board is comprised of current parents who run and oversee the school’s fundraisers and fun raisers. The primary role of this Board is to implement fundraising activities to meet financial obligations, promote All Saints Catholic School for continuous enrollment and encourage camaraderie among faculty, parents and children.
