The Texas Panhandle's only private college preparatory school for students in grades 6 through 12
Mr. Mykel Byersmith, Ascension Academy’s wind ensemble director, teaches all levels of band and percussion instruments. Students learn the musical skills needed to be successful performers and are very active in student life on campus, performing at Pep Rallies and special assemblies. Advanced students perform with Amarillo College’s Community Band, Amarillo Youth Symphony and compete in
All-Region. During the holiday season, our members can be seen performing at the Salvation Army collection areas as well as at the Amarillo Botanical Gardens.
