Academics at Ascension

Our Philosophy

From the very beginning, Ascension’s goal has been to teach lifelong learning skills, while adapting the curriculum to meet the varying formative stages present within each student.
Whether referring to our nurturing faculty or our small class sizes, Ascension Episcopal School strives to honor each student’s learning style, provide support and assistance as needed, and actively seek parental support in all endeavors. In doing so, we foster an environment of supportive learning that extends beyond the classroom walls, encouraging our students to be independent thinkers who are held accountable at each developmental stage. Our students thrive in an environment that promotes authentic learning through meaningful projects with technology to support classroom instruction.
