7th graders really know their way around. Not only that, many student choose to become Ascension Ambassadors, helping to promote Ascension and give tours to prospective families. Students can be elected to Student Council, earn a role in Drama Club, attend Junior High dances and participate in Math Team.
The curriculum becomes more challenging, and students go on field trips to augment what is taught. Each year 7th graders tour the backstage areas of Lyric Opera of Chicago and attend a matinee of a full-length opera.
Most 7th graders begin preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation.
7th graders are at the center of our Junior High, introducing the 6th graders to upper-class life, and aspiring to be the class leaders of tomorrow.
