From the very beginning, our goal at Ascension has been to teach lifelong learning skills at each grade level, while adapting the curriculum to meet the varying formative stages present within each student.
Athletics, an important part of the Ascension experience, teach fundamentals, techniques, and sportsmanship. Students learn life lessons such as teamwork, dedication, and responsibility and practice respect for opponents and the rules. They develop the ability to win and lose with grace.
