From Our Parents

We did not set out to send our kids to private school, but we found that public elementary school curriculum was geared toward preparing a child to be good test takers and herding the masses through. We wanted a school that would provide the academic rigor that would help shape a young mind and allow our children to become critical thinking adults. After living in many places across the United States we found the academic environment that we were looking for at Ascension Academy. Within a few short years our oldest son has grown in self-confidence that has allowed him pursue his interest both in academics and the arts in a nurturing environment. 

I would recommend Ascension Academy to any family that seeks to provide their children with the tools of success through a nurturing educational environment that will challenge their children to reach for a higher academic standard.

We chose Ascension because we like what Ascension has to offer: smaller classes, dedicated teachers, a safer environment, and more individual attention.  We are proud that our children have an opportunity to study their faith in their school. The teachers here truly take time with the students. I see it from a parent's and an employee's perspective. Our child is not a statistic at Ascension, but a person known by every teacher and staff member. We would recommend Ascension because of the quality of education and the bonds formed between students and staff.

After investigating our choices in schools upon relocating to Amarillo three and a half years ago, our family chose Ascension Academy for their rigorous curriculum, our choice in religious education, and the professional and courteous staff and environment.  We most appreciate Ascension Academy for allowing our children to live their faith in a school environment that promotes higher academics. We gladly recommend other families to visit Ascension Academy.  We're sure they'll be impressed with all aspects of the school.
