High Expectations

Ascension Catholic School fosters an environment of achievement. High expectations are set from the moment a scholar enrolls. Beginning as early as kindergarten, scholars begin learning that they are expected to work hard to succeed in school, graduate from high school and go on to a post-secondary institution.

This is the motto of Ascension School; it is recited daily through the all-school morning meditation.

“We thank Jesus for another day of life. We will honor Jesus by showing patience and kindness to all. We will use our hands in gentle ways. We will guard our mouths from saying evil. We will respect ourselves and others by showing courtesy and by honoring each others’ personal space. We will take responsibility for our lessons. When we do these things, our Ascension Catholic School is safe and God will smile on us.”
