Having been attending the school since I was in kindergarten, Ascension has undeniably become my second home. I honestly believe I am with my school family more than with my biological one.

One of my favorited aspects of Ascension is the freedom granted to its students to truly explore their own unique interests and be themselves. Additionally, Ascension creates a community atmosphere in which students are not only permitted but encouraged to openly communicate with their teachers on a personal level. Through this, I believe this school has successfully prepared me to later exist amidst a professional environment following graduation!

It is different...it is different, that is the way the administration and faculty define the school. And after transferring one of our daughters here, we were not sure of the definition, but a year later we were totally educated on this place and transferred our second daughter here!! Best place for our highly intelligent girls, which were at another top Episcopal school in the area, that just was not as open-minded and as personal with each “different” student situation. Ascension Episcopal allows each student to pursue their individual interests and needs!!
Thanks
Being at Ascension is the only reason I was accepted into the college I was. I was most likely going to go to a community college. But a theatre college scouted me and now I’m going to one of the top 100 colleges in the country! The program that Ascension has is unbeatable, and arguably the best theatre highschool in the state.
