Welcome Head of School

Dear Prospective Families,
Portrait image of Kayla Cockrell - Head of School

It is such an honor to serve students at Ascension Episcopal School! Watchingour Eagles grow throughout the year is the most rewarding gift to our educators!
It is their curiosity, excitement, passion, and desire that fuels us to continue forward with our mission!

The future forward starts with you! We are excited to begin accepting applications for Kindergarten-2nd grade for Fall 2024!

As our School strategically grows it is the quality that we offer that must be valued! We will set the precedent for who we say we are as Eagles at Ascension Episcopal School!

Our program will be an investigation based 21st Century approach to elementary education. We will go beyond the traditional definitions of academic success to focus on what works best for students. This emergent approach will combine the best of research, educational standards, our student’s needs, and developmentally appropriate practices to build skills that students need to succeed in work, life, and citizenship! Applied knowledge in areas such as critical thinking, creative thinking, and collaboration will set a path forward for a future filled with success!

We invite you to consider a future forward with Ascension Episcopal School! We will host many events over the next few months to share more about our enrollment process, our program, and to answer important questions aboutwhat a private School education at AES means for our Eagles!

As you consider your future, we would be honored to be a part of the conversation! We invite your questions and inquiries directly to me or our Head
of Admissions, Ms. Nina Polk. Thank you for offering us the opportunity to share a future with your family!
Kayla Cockrell
