Leadership and learning are indispensable

to each other.

The Texas Panhandle's only private college preparatory school for students in grades 6 through 12


Dear Cardinals,


Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Ascension Academy! I hope that each of you had the opportunity to relax over the summer and return with your batteries recharged. After an unusual Spring, the Faculty and staff readily anticipate your arrival on campus. Without the student body, the campus is quiet in anticipation of the action and life that you all bring!


With a new school year comes new opportunities: Opportunities to build on academic and social successes of last year; opportunities to grow, try new ideas and thoughts, and to expand your comfort zone; opportunities to reach new heights and build on your passions. A new canvas awaits your fresh brush and the Faculty and staff at Ascension stand ready to guide you as you fill in that canvas and create your school year.


While this is the 21st year for Ascension Academy, it will be my first year joining you as Head of School. My family and I eagerly await the opportunity to meet and get to know each of you. I am thrilled to be part of the Ascension community and look forward to celebrating your successes in all aspects of the school!


If you are visiting our website in hopes of one day becoming a Cardinal, I hope you find 

Veritas et Virtus!

Tim Oditt

Head of School
