Exceptional

We provide our students with a challenging curriculum in an environment that fosters each child’s unique talents and gifts. With an average student to teacher ratio of 13:1, our faculty has the opportunity to work with our students individually to help them achieve their academic goals.

Every year, Ascension, along with the elementary schools across the Archdiocese of Chicago, administer the ACT Aspire summative test to all students in grades 3 through 8. The ACT Aspire assesses students’ proficiency in five academic areas: English, Math, Reading, Science and Writing. Ascension students continually perform above the national average in all grades and all areas.
 
Our highly qualified teachers are committed to providing the very best education for our students. They are encouraged to take part in professional development opportunities, provided through a privately funded source of tuition assistance for faculty. Ascension believes in the importance of life-long learning for all.
 
Ascension graduates go on to study at many of Chicagoland’s finest college preparatory high schools including Oak Park-River Forest High School, Fenwick High School, Saint Ignatius College Prep, Trinity High School, and Nazareth Academy. In 2019, all of our eighth graders were accepted into their first choice for secondary education.
