All Saints Catholic School believes students should have the opportunity to represent their school in extracurricular academic competitions. Through these competitions students not only enhance their learning , but develop character and learn discipline and teamwork. Our students have been highly successful in these competitions over the years, and we have had several winners at the district, regional, and state level.
