Our goal is to inspire students, amidst this unprecedented world of image-capturing devices, to appreciate and strive to create strong and evocative images that still must embrace the fundamental elements of art, reveal an understanding of aesthetic quality, and contain layers of meaning. 
Ascension offers four ascending levels of photography that work to activate, develop, and maximize a student’s ability to recognize, capture, edit, share, critique, and reflect upon the world around us. 

Beyond developing students’ desires to capture and better understand our world through photography, Ascension successfully advocates the organizational, interpretive/critical skills, written and orally, through this unquestionably inspiring and influential art form.

When it comes to our children, one of the most important gifts we can provide for them is opportunity. 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.
