Ascension Catholic School strongly believes in the importance of enriching the whole child. Our school offers a range of programs in the arts, athletics, homework help and spiritual guidance to boost achievement.
Our school choir is a professionally trained performance group composed of students in grades three to eight. Meeting weekly for practice, they are invited throughout the year to sing at community events.
Every student from kindergarten to third grade receives music instruction in partnership with MacPhail Center for Music. For kindergarteners to second graders, the program incorporates an introduction to musical instruments, vocal music, children’s literature, dramatization and art. The lessons enhance the students’ understanding of rhythm, storytelling and music improvisation. Once students enter third grade, they are enrolled in violin lessons. Students in grades four to eight have an opportunity to advance to private string and orchestral lessons at MacPhail Center for the Arts.
