The capacity to learn is a gift. The ability to learn

is a skill. The willingness to learn is a choice.

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



Thank you for your interest in Ascension Academy where we provide students with an exemplary college preparatory education in a safe, nurturing, faith-affirming environment. Please explore our website to learn about our students, families, faculty, and programs. We hope to get to know your family and help you learn more about our school and how we prepare students for lives of significance.


In addition to our powerful academic curriculum, our students have access to an array of award-winning fine arts programs including studio art, orchestra, wind ensemble, choir, theater, and film. Ascension Cardinals are also able to select from a variety of athletic programs including swim, cross country, basketball, volleyball, track, fencing, golf, and tennis.


Ascension Academy has experienced an explosion of growth, as the families of Amarillo are hearing more about the difference our school is making in the lives of our students. While Ascension Academy meets the needs of many children, our challenging college preparatory curriculum is not for every student’s learning style. Our goal is to help each prospective family determine if Ascension is the “right fit” for their child and their family. Visit our How and When to Apply page for application details.


I extend an invitation to you and your family to come and see us first hand and truly “feel” the Ascension Academy experience. Along with our open house opportunities, I accept individual appointments for private tours of the school. I look forward to getting to know you and answering your questions about our school and the admission process.
