Mission & Philosophy

The mission of Ascension Lutheran School is to raise caring servants to extend life in Christ to diverse people by equipping students for a life of Christian discipleship enabling them to acquire knowledge, work habits, thinking skills, and processes needed to help them to become productive, respected citizens.

We are dedicated to accomplishing this mission by providing a positive, Christ-centered environment in which each child can realize his or her fullest potential.  We believe that this is best accomplished when caring Christian teachers work together in partnership with the home for the well-being of the child.
