Schools and sustainability

“Can urban Catholic elementary schools close the achievement gap and be self-sustaining?”  A panel of experts, including Principal Benito Matias, say YES! Read more about this forum on Catholic urban education.

Become involved at Ascension!

Ascension Catholic School offers many ways for the community to engage. If you are interesting in volunteering or becoming a donor, you can take a tour specifically designed for donors and volunteers, attend a semi-annual Hope & Progress breakfast, join us at our monthly school mass, and give generously to special annual collections at the Basilica of St. Mary or Holy Name of Jesus.


If you would like to donate or volunteer, call 612 424-6206 or email for more information. If you are interested getting a tour for the purpose of enrolling a child, please call 612 521-3609.
