Why Ascension?

At Ascension Episcopal School, BALANCE is a priority. High standards are not reserved for academics only. Students also grow, thrive, and excel in arts, athletics, and Christian values through opportunities, acceptance, and support.

Dear Prospective Blue Gators,

I would like to extend to you a warm welcome from our school as you seek the best school for your family!

Ascension Episcopal School is a dynamic community. This dynamism flows from our families, from our faculty, from our history, and from our plans for the future. Our students are surrounded by families, friends, and faculty who care about them and who encourage them to reach their fullest potential. The holistic concern for our students is grounded in our identity as a parish school of the Church of the Ascension, where we welcome all as God’s children and celebrate their uniqueness as God’s creations. 

We are excited about the future we are building on our rich, stable foundation and hope you will visit us so we can explore how your children will thrive in our school.

We hope to welcome you soon!
