About Ascension Episcopal School (AES)
Ascension Episcopal School, founded in 1972, serves children three months through Eighth Grade. 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. The world of the future is becoming increasingly global and children at Ascension Episcopal are able to experience first-hand this diversity and its value in a safe, Christian environment. 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.
As an elementary and middle school, our students are given time to grow, the space to choose and they love to learn. Responsibility around the campus increases as they mature and the appreciation for their individual gifts deepens as they begin to understand their ability to influence the world around them. Ascension’s faculty and staff are tenured professionals who have devoted their careers to the growth and education of our students. Such dedication yields students who are well prepared both academically and spiritually for the challenges of middle school.
In a diverse student body, our students make friends in the classroom, on the playground, and through participation in extracurricular activities. Through these shared experiences, our children learn to appreciate their 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.
