The School of the Ascension of our Lord is a Catholic elementary school which exists as a vital ministry of the Church of the Ascension. Its presence in the community affords parents an opportunity to choose a school which supports family efforts in the religious formation of their children, supports their faith perspective of Catholic values and ideals, and at the same time provides a quality academic education in a caring and disciplined environment.
While primarily serving the Catholic community, Ascension School embraces students from families of other faiths who value a quality Christian education.
We believe the children entrusted to our care for their education, faith formation, social development and personal development are our most precious gifts. God has created our children in His own likeness and our ministry to provide for their education, formation and development is one of the important ways of showing our gratitude to God for these gifts.
