As we are now well into the 21st century, it is clear that the tides of education are at a crossroads. Knowledge is essential, but in-and-of itself, insufficient. To be successful, students need the skills to answer questions that don’t yet exist. As we enter the conceptual age, those individuals who are fluent in critical thinking, creativity, communication, adaptability, and collaboration stand to excel to greater heights. Ascension has intuitively known this as we have brought educational excellence in a Christian environment to Lafayette for over fifty years. An Ascension education inspires every student to rise to a higher level through individualized instruction, education of the whole child, and by fostering a passion for inquiry and a drive toward lifelong learning. All these are bolstered by a faith in God and service to others.

Through Ascension, we know our students will rise to a higher level. Our hope is that you will join in this journey and support The Ascension Fund.

Ascension Episcopal School could not exist without the support of the Ascension family — and to all who have invested in the future of our school, we offer our sincere thanks.

Your gifts make a difference — in the life of our school, and in the lives of every Ascension student.


We would never presume to tell you how to donate your money, but there are many of you who have asked; so here’s a suggested break down for annual giving. Our suggestion is to give your first 20% to the Ascension Fund, 30% to the Booster Club and/or Fine Arts Alliance, and 50% to fundraising events, ads/sponsorships, and/or special projects.


Remember, while our hope is to raise as much money as possible, no gift is too small. Together, we can not only reach our goals, but more importantly, make a huge impact in our Ascension community.

Thank you
