Ascension Catholic School Home

Love, Kindness, Respect

For more than 100 years, Ascension School has served the families of South Oak Park and the surrounding neighborhoods with the option of an exceptional education for their children in the spirit of love, kindness and respect. In 2017, I was blessed to become the most recent addition to that long tradition, taking on the role of principal at this special school. Since that time, we have seen tremendous growth in our Early Childhood program, the addition of our Ursuline Center, and the expansion of our Department of Student Services.

I thank you for taking the time to learn more about Ascension School, and our compassionate community of students, faculty and families who strive for the very best.  - Ms. Maryanne Polega, Principal
