IDENTITY STATEMENT

Ascension Lutheran School offers a strong Liberal Arts Christian education based on a good understanding of the California Common Core Standards but going beyond those standards to enrich the quality of the education we provide in order that our students are well prepared for their future education. Every school day your child gets to do what they love to do. Those things involve learning skills in all academic areas plus Spanish, music, drama, art, physical education, and entrepreneurial experiences. We feel called to provide the highest level of education for our students so that they can follow their passion for learning in all areas of their development: academically, spiritually, artistically, and athletically.

SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY

Ascension Lutheran School was established in 1963 by Ascension Lutheran Church to serve the congregation and as an outreach to the community. The educational and co-curricular programs strive to foster intellectual, spiritual, emotional, physical, and social development.

Recognizing that education is a lifelong process of formal and informal experiences with the home, school, and church, Ascension seeks to collaborate with parents to fully develop each child’s potential in a loving, nurturing environment. We believe maximum learning occurs when home and school work together to mutually support and reinforce Christian values.

A key to quality education is a well-qualified, dynamic staff. Teachers at Ascension Lutheran School maintain appropriate credentials and certification in their teaching field and model a lifestyle that reflects a dynamic, growing relationship with Christ. The staff of Ascension School leads their classes in a spirit of love and discipline while setting a strong Christian example.
