The Texas Panhandle's only private college preparatory school for students in grades 6 through 12
In addition to a well-rounded college preparatory education, Ascension Academy is committed to family and community. Ascension Academy students are encouraged to participate in community service.
High school students must have 10 hours per year (40 hours if he or she attends Ascension for 4 years). Middle school students must have 5 per year, (15 hours if he or she attends for 3 years). Hours are prorated for new students beyond the 6th or 9th grade. Upon graduation, high school seniors will receive a notation on their final transcripts for completion/non-completion of their community service requirement. Awards are also presented to students that have attained service hours above the required levels at the awards ceremony at the end of the year.
Students are given details regarding how and when they can complete these hours via emails, the
Community Service Bulletin Board, and through events organized by various school groups. Outside
volunteering is encouraged but requires prior approval from the director of the program.
