I’m so excited to finally get this post published now that my website change is nearly completed. Ascension Episcopal School in the Energy Corridor is one of those “gems” which a lot of families overlook because it ends at grade 5. Just like The Fay School and Yorkshire Academy, Ascension offers such an outstanding education that its graduates are well-prepared and highly desired when they apply to middle schools. Parents may not like having to go through admissions again, but an Ascension education can make up for that. There is much richness within the international community at Ascension with its small class size, academic support for children at both ends of the learning curve, integrated technology and hands-on learning for all ages. The campus has extensive playing fields to support a year-round athletic program and a variety of engaging after-school programs. Add to this the welcoming arms of the Episcopal church to nurture children in love and grace, a talented faculty, and an experienced Head of School in Nancy Clausey. Be sure you add Ascension Episcopal School to your list of open houses in the upcoming admission season.
