Mr. Joseph Kilmade


Ascension School recognizes each individual is a child of God - having a divine origin and an eternal destiny. In an atmosphere of trust, openness and respect, each student is guided first to the idea and then to the realization of a process of formation which helps each child achieve understanding, acceptance and utilization of his/her God given talents.


Ascension School provides opportunities fostering growth of religious attitudes, moral behavior, and academic achievement. Through religious celebrations and studies, integration of Catholic – Christian virtues into all areas of the curriculum, and opportunities to live and experience the gospel message, the gift of Faith is nurtured in each child. Ascension students participate in weekly all school liturgies, as well as bi-weekly grade level liturgies.


Ascension School provides an academic program that prepares our students for academic success in the area’s college preparatory high schools. Our students learn pre-algebra in Seventh Grade, and Algebra I in Eighth Grade, All students are taught Spanish beginning in Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.
