2007 – 2008

The final year at St. Alphonsus Parish School was located on the parish campus. The four northeast Grand Rapids parishes (St. Alphonsus, Blessed Sacrament, St. Isidore, and St. Jude) decided to consolidate schools to form our new parish school, All Saints Academy (ASA). In 2008, ASA opened to serve the students and families of the four parishes at two campuses – an elementary school located at the Diamond Avenue Campus and a middle school at the 4 Mile Campus. The proud tradition of St. Al’s students still continues today.
