Age-specific K-12 learning
Christian classical schools use the children's God-given strengths at each stage of growth to help them learn. Young children enjoy memorizing, singing, and rhymes, so a solid foundation is laid in each subject of study at this age. Junior-high students are inquisitive, so we develop their ability to reason and discern truth, and high-school students want to talk, so we teach them how to present their ideas persuasively. The result is an Ascension graduate who knows what they believe and why, and can positively impact the community around them.

Time-tested method and content
Christian classical schools develop skills to equip students to be lifetime learners by teaching students that every subject is comprised of certain defining facts with an orderly organization of the information, and a concise and persuasive way in which to present the acquired material. This method of instruction has been in use for hundreds of years, and is the means which produced most of history's great thinkers. It is the new "old-way" of educating students with a long history of success. Ascension students are familiar with reading, writing, Latin, logic, math, science, rhetoric, and the fine arts resulting in gracious, knowledgeable, and thoughtful men and women.

Christ-centered curriculum
At Ascension we teach all subjects based on the principle that God is the Creator of all that exists, and therefore all knowledge is interrelated and points back to Him. Biblical standards of conduct are applied in all arenas of school life, acknowledging that Jesus Christ is Lord of all. Ascension acknowledges that God has given parents the responsibility for the education of their children and that the school instructs those students under the parents' delegated authority. Most classical trained graduates remain faithful to Christ even through college and have a heart to serve others.

Academically rigorous
Students are capable of achieving much more than is commonly thought, and therefore at Ascension we have high expectations for student learning. Students learn to love the subjects that their teachers love and cheerfully follow the Godly example of their instructors. Students with a Christian classical education experience the personal satisfaction that is inherent in mastering a difficult task.

Nurturing community
Ascension Classical school is a community of parents and teachers who share a commitment for teaching children to love learning and grow in godliness. Smaller class sizes ensure that teachers know their students and are better able to serve them individually. Students know they are loved and not just another face in the crowd while openly manifesting deep appreciation and respect for their parents and teachers.
