Blue Zones Project Approved™ School

All Saints' Episcopal School is a Blue Zones Project Approved School and the first PK-12 school in the nation to receive this designation. As the only cross-divisional school recognized as Blue Zones Project Approved, All Saints' pioneered the standard for community-wide wellness practices. 

Blue Zones Project® is a community-led well-being initiative designed to make healthy choices easier for communities across the United States through permanent changes to environment, policy and social networks. When our entire community participates - from worksites and schools to restaurants and grocery stores - the small changes add up to huge benefits for all of us: lowered healthcare costs, improved productivity, and ultimately, a higher quality of life.

What is Blue Zones Project?

Dan Buettner, Blue Zones founder, is a National Geographic Fellow and New York Times bestselling author who discovered five places in the world – dubbed “Blue Zones” – where people live the longest and are healthiest. Through their research, Dan and his team found that all “Blue Zones” areas share nine specific lifestyle habits, which they refer to as the Power 9®. Dan Buettner started Blue Zones Project® to leverage these secrets discovered in Blue Zones around the world – rare longevity hotspots – to help transform communities across the U.S. into areas where the healthy choice is easy and people live longer with a higher quality of life.

Live Long, All Saints'

Wellness is one of the five pillars of our School's strategic plan, guiding our focus towards developing the mind, body and spirit of each individual through programs and activities that reinforce a healthy, balanced lifestyle. The impetus of this journey began in 2016 when Jared Moody '17 chose Blue Zones as the topic of his Senior Capstone Project. Jared saw how Blue Zones Project could support the School's commitment to wellness and upon graduation, he passed the baton to Bianca Arreguin '18, who was able to see it through as the focus of her Senior Capstone.
