Ascension Academy does an amazing job at making sure that students understand the concepts that are being taught. Their curriculum accurately prepares students for ap tests and college classes. However, the school tends to overload students with homework and studying in addition to participating in extracurriculars

If you're looking for a school with great extracurriculars, Ascension Academy is the place! We have a wide variety of sports, including swimming, cross country, track, basketball, tennis, and volleyball, and we hold several State championship titles in both cross country and track. In addition, we hold State championship titles in many state-level academic contests. Our music programs include orchestra, choir, woodwinds, and even a Kazoo band that plays at some Home games.

Latin club is also very popular at Ascension and is recognized around the State of Texas for its excellence. There's something for everyone!
Ascension Academy is where I have been able to create opportunities and experiences for myself. Previously I went to a public school, and Ascension Has really made a difference and is making me more than prepared for college.
