Parents of Ascension Academy (PAA) is a parent lead organization that volunteers with the lunch canteen, donations, events, and organizes parent nights. For more information on PAA, find their page here.
Ascension is unique in the fact that we do not do the typical fundraisers found at many public schools (selling chocolate, cookie dough, etc.). Instead, we ask you to donate your time and resources. Individual clubs and classes do large fundraisers hosted by the school, and they could use your help! Fundraising events include 'Rent-a-Roman' to send the Latin club on their yearly trip, and the Rummage Sale to help fund the choir's travels to TMEA. More information about ways to help will be sent via email to parents throughout the year.
Simply put, this is not only a school, but a community and an experience. The Ascension Experience is something that students take away and continue to use in college and beyond.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 contains a provision that allows the use of Section 529 savings accounts to pay for private K-12 education up to $10,000 per year, per child, starting in 2018. Establishing and funding a Section 529 Plan can provide significant tax benefits for students. See your investment advisor or accountant for more information.
In a word: YES! Over the past 20 years, we have had our senior class average $2 million in scholarships every year.
We believe that a smaller class size means that each student is getting the attention that they require to flourish. Average student to teacher ratios are 15:1, but vary on grade level and class.
All faculty and staff emails can be found on the Faculty and Staff page. You can also communicate with teachers through Grade link. Parent-Teacher meetings are set by the teacher upon request or necessity.
