Ascension School is a ministry of Ascension Parish. The primary goal of the school is to help form children so they will be educated in their Religion, involved in the liturgical life of their community and willing to continue the work of Jesus by ministering to those in need.
Ascension's Curriculum is aligned to that of the Archdiocese of Chicago Office of Catholic Schools. Curriculum standards can be accessed here.
Ascension has a strong curriculum and students experience academic success scoring above the national norms in all areas on standardized tests. In addition to a strong, standard-based curriculum, Ascension School is well known for its emphasis on the Arts. The core subjects are complemented by classes in Art, Music, and Spanish, as well as Physical Education, Library and Computer. Our Learning Resource Program seeks to ensure academic success for each child.
