From Our Parents

We are thankful that we chose Ascension Academy for our sons’ education several years ago.  Joshua and Jacob are benefiting in more ways than we imagined in their middle school and high school years.  Looking back, we can see how both of them are growing more fully into the young men that God is calling them to become. 

 

Ascension Academy is preparing them, daily, for their college years, giving them a much more broad perspective on life. The smaller class sizes afford more personal one on one time with their teachers, and individualized instruction is given when necessary. Questions are heard and answered in a timely manner for both parents and students.  The few times I’ve had to reach out to teachers and/or faculty members, my emails received almost immediate response. This is remarkable at the middle school and high school levels. The teachers truly care about their students; the students love and respect their teachers.  Ascension Academy plays a vital role in our sons’ lives as it upholds our value system on the home front.  Knowing they are in a safe, nurturing, and positive environment when they are away from our home during the school day, gives us invaluable comfort.

 

Joshua and Jacob have been able to participate in sports and they have wonderful coaches who have helped them tap into and dig deep into something they have found inside themselves. The size of our school offers a more one on one approach in both academics and extracurricular.

We are most grateful for the friendships that not only our boys have made, but also that we as parents have made.  Our family has been blessed with life long, enduring friendships that will last through the years.  We eagerly anticipate the community of our school growing closer and becoming more unified under the direction of our new headmaster. 

 

Change is our only constant and we must embrace it with an attitude of gratitude.

 

The Marshall’s are forever grateful for Ascension Academy!!!

We did not set out to send our kids to private school, but we found that the public elementary school curriculum was geared toward preparing a child to be good test takers and herding the masses through. We wanted a school that would provide the academic rigor that would help shape a young mind and allow our children to become critical thinking adults. After living in many places across the United States we found the academic environment that we were looking for at Ascension Academy. Within a few short years, our oldest son has grown in self-confidence that has allowed him to pursue his interest both in academics and the arts in a nurturing environment. 

I would recommend Ascension Academy to any family that seeks to provide their children with the tools of success through a nurturing educational environment that will challenge their children to reach for a higher academic standard.
