About Ascension Episcopal School (AES)
Ascension Episcopal School, founded in 1972, serves children three months through Pre-K4 (3 Months - 4 Years). The AES Early Learner Program (ELP) is available for children three months of age through 3 years of age. We are a family of mutually respectful, caring, and involved parents, staff, and students who are partners in the education of the whole child.
Ascension Episcopal School is a Christian community committed to guiding each child toward academic excellence while promoting Christian values and cultivating their God-given talents.
Ascension Episcopal School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the School. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in the administration of our educational policies, admissions policies, scholarships, and other school-administered programs.
The purpose of the school is to offer a Christian educational program of the highest standards. Our school seeks to train and develop each of its students in the spiritual, intellectual, physical, social, and emotional areas of the personality to an optimum level appropriate for the child’s age and abilities. As an integral part of the Church, the school seeks to instruct and implement in its daily relationships the values received from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Ascension Episcopal provides an atmosphere in which understanding, tolerance, self-esteem, and confidence are instilled. Helping children realize their ambitions through Christian and academic guidance encourages them to develop into citizens who feel the rewards of contributing positively to society.
Our Early Learner and PK Program programs provide the basis for success in Kindergarten and beyond. Each year our students have curriculum age appropriate to their developmental and cognitive stages. Our teachers are tenured and devoted to providing the activities and social time for each student, guiding them to learning and social and emotional development. In addition to classroom time, students engage in Library time once a week, Music twice a week, and Gross Motor Skills one day a week. Chapel is every Tuesday and Friday for Pre-School to PK4, at 9 am.
In a diverse student body, our students make friends in the classrooms and on the playground. Through these shared experiences, our children learn to appreciate the differences and to celebrate each other’s accomplishments. Ascension Episcopal School regards the diversity of race, color, nationality, and religious affiliation as an educational asset and actively seeks this in its families.
