Our Beliefs

The education of all students is the primary focus of Ascension Leadership Academy.

Taking into consideration student exceptionalities and cultural diversity, we maintain high expectations for all students and believe that all students can learn.

Students are entitled to an education in a positive environment that is safe, nurturing, free from distractions, physically comfortable, and stimulating; therefore, conducive to learning.

Faculty and staff strive to assist students in realizing the relationship between curriculum and content and their lives beyond the classroom.

The curriculum is implemented to develop strong moral character, to instill self-respect, and to foster positive self-esteem, thereby producing students who will become responsible members of society.

Our girls self-confidence has doubled since attending Ascension Leadership Academy. Now they enjoy learning and the wonderful way the teachers have of showing each child how special they are.
