All Saints Episcopal Day School is an interdenominational school that has been serving more than 250 students from all faiths in Nursery through Eighth Grade since 1985. The school is located in Hoboken, New Jersey, a small urban community in Northeast New Jersey, and is just minutes from downtown Manhattan, New York. The school occupies two campuses: the Elementary school and Middle school which is located at 707 Washington St., on the corner of 7th and Washington Streets, and houses Grades 1-8, and the Early Learning Center, which is located at 527 Clinton St. on the corner of Sixth and Clinton Streets, houses the Nursery, Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten programs. Both campuses boast historic landmark buildings, and include a gymnasium, movement room, library, science lab, art room, assembly space in the church, and private outdoor play yards. There are SMART Boards in all classrooms and networked computers throughout all of the buildings.

Students at All Saints represent a diverse population. The core curriculum consists of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, physical education, world language and health, as well as an array of special subjects including art, music, dance, drama, computers, and community service. All Saints offers extended hours for before and after school care, an optional extended day program for Nursery and Pre-Kindergarten, a wide variety of enrichment classes for students in all grades, and day camp offerings during extended vacations from school. Graduates from All Saints have gone on to attend competitive high schools in New York City and New Jersey. The overall Student–teacher ratio is 11 to 1.

The school has a spiritual philosophy.[2]

Each grade takes 6-10 field trips in New York City and its environs per year. Beginning in the Fourth Grade, students enjoy three-day overnight trips to Cape May (Grade 4), The Horse Institute (Grade 5) and Frost Valley YMCA (Grade 6-7). Eighth Graders participate in an international exchange program with a school in Ecuador, and spend 10 days living with host families in Quito.

The majority of teachers at All Saints hold advanced degrees in their fields and/or areas of expertise, and are certified to teach in the state of New Jersey, and the staff of more than 30 teachers and assistants are supported in continued professional development. One All Saint's Middle School teacher was named Teacher of the Year in October 2011 by the New Jersey Council for American Private Education (NJ CAPE). The award is presented annually by NJ CAPE and presented by the New Jersey Deputy Commissioner of Education. The faculty at All Saints routinely present their work at conferences in the state and around the country. All Saints Episcopal Day School is accredited by the New Jersey Association of Independent Schools, is sponsored by All Saints Episcopal Parish, and holds memberships in the National Association of Episcopal Schools and the National Middle School Association.
