Ascension Episcopal School is committed to educational excellence in a Christian Environment. These are not just words but the mission of our school. Last year, in the midst of a pandemic, seven Ascension students earned AP Scholar distinction. In order to achieve this status, a student must earn a score of 3 or higher on at least three AP exams.

Advanced Placement (AP) classes are essentially college-level courses taught to high school students. For a course to be designated as AP, the teacher must submit syllabi for approval from the College Board to validate the rigor and topics of the course. In addition to being better prepared for college-level work, most colleges award students college credit based on exam performance. The skills learned and practiced in AP classes, including but not limited to analytical reasoning, problem-solving, and effective communication, are all essential for success in college and beyond.
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.
