Ascension is proud to offer a full range of programs that parents desire in their Parish School.
Ascension School has an Extended Day Program for registered students. This program operates before school from 7:00 to 8:10 AM and after school from 3:00 until 6 PM on all full-day school days. A non-refundable registration fee is paid at the time of school registration.
Approximately sixty Ascension students finish their school day at 3:00 and then move down the hall to join their Extended Day Program friends for a snack, group sharing time, homework and some fun.
At Ascension, we see our Preschool programs as an extension of the development that happens at home. Our nurturing, play-based classes for three and four year-olds focus on promoting the physical, social, emotional, cognitive and spiritual growth of our young children.
Our Religious Education is based on solid Catholic theology and practice. Students pray in class every day. Each month, their faith lives are nurtured through prayer services, visits to church and attendance at school masses. In grades 1-8, children participate in playing and leading the liturgies. Preparation for Sacraments is fostered by the Parish Religious Education Staff, with some preparation from Reconciliation and First Eucharist in the Religion class.
