Directions to All Saints Academy

Take I 24 to US 27 North. Take the MLK exit. Turn right at the bottom of the exit ramp. Turn left at either the second street (Broad), the third street (Market) or fourth street (Georgia). Go to 8th St. and turn right. Go 3,4 or 5 blocks to 310 E. 8th St. All Saints Academy is an old school building and is on the right.

- or -

From the Memorial Auditorium at McCallie and Lindsay turn left on Lindsay and go one block to 8th. Turn left on 8th to All Saints at 310 E 8th.

Parking on 8th Street and in the lot on the right past All Saints Academy is free.

Directions From The Dance

It's harder to leave our dance than it is to get there. This is partly because 8th Street is one-way and so is the next cross street. Turn right out of the parking lot. Turn left on the next street (Houston) and at the next street (McCallie). McCallie becomes 7th St. Stay on 7th down to either Market or Broad. Turn left on Georgia, Market or Broad and go to MLK Boulevard. Turn right on MLK and then take US 27 South (that's the second entrance ramp) which will take you to I 24.
