    Complete our online inquiry form. A member of our team will then reach out to you to discuss academic and co-curricular offerings at Ascension and answer additional questions.
  • Step 2: Visit

    While our website provides a glimpse of what life is like at Ascension, the only way to truly experience our school is to see us in action! For this reason, we offer campus tours throughout the year and invite you to tour all three campuses to learn how each contributes to Ascension’s mission.
    Complete the online inquiry form, and call to schedule a tour.

    If you have additional questions, please feel free to call 337-233-9748 ext. 501.

    Applying does not guarantee a spot at Ascension. All application process steps must be completed. Availability does not guarantee acceptance. If your child is the right fit, a contract will be issued in Step 5. 
    Note: Admissions testing will be scheduled after your application is submitted. 
  • Step 4: Shadow

    After submitting your application, our team member will contact you to schedule a date for your child to experience Ascension by shadowing one of our students. Students typically visit with their current grade level. 
  • Step 5: Decision

    In mid-January, Ascension issues re-enrollment contracts to our current families. At the end of January, new enrollment contracts are issued based on availability in each grade level and acceptance.
*Availability in a grade level does not guarantee acceptance. 
NOTE: All preschool students must be 3 years old by September 1st and potty-trained by the start of school.

It not only prepares them for their future but also gives them the independence to discover and define who they are: who they want to be. Our faculty and staff focus on developing the whole child, with a curriculum designed to teach lifelong learning skills.
