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!

I am certain that Ascension Academy is the best school in Texas. The academics are top-notch and the main goal is to prepare you for college. Many alumni come back and say that they are so much more prepared for college than their peers and that they are actually finding college to be a breeze! The teachers and staff are so friendly and helpful. They are very skilled and will take the time to interact with you as an individual and really help you understand their lessons. The coaches, sports, and extracurriculars are also diverse and their is some activity for everyone at Ascension. And, the student body is wonderful! Everyone is welcoming and you are instantly part of the Ascension family the second you walk in the door. There truly is a sense of unity in this school. The students want to learn and the teacher want to teach. This is a school filled with some of the brightest, most dedicated students in Texas. Ascension Academy is just starting to become known, but in a few years, Ascension's true excellence will be known by the entire state of Texas. Our family loves Ascension and we know that you will, too.
This is the most incredible staff of teachers, all amazing in their own right and top of their subject area in all of the region...this is the best teaching staff in the area in all subject areas. Their knowledge and expertise is amazing, but more importantly they are great mentors and role models for students. They truly care about each child in their classroom!
