Developing children’s potentials
By providing our students a rich, well-rounded course of study from kindergarten through high school that develops children’s full academic, social, artistic, and ethical potentials, we are offering them the world. A liberal arts education develops students’ myriad curiosities and capabilities and prepares them for a life of meaning, purpose, fulfillment, and success.
Encouraging critical thinking and questioning
We prize critical thinking and questioning, both celebrate and challenge the literary canon, and cultivate moral judgment and civic responsibility. Our children learn to speak and write with clarity, expression, and force; to think rationally and without prejudice; to be skilled at and comfortable in the disciplines of math and science; and to engage in the world and its opportunities with confidence and zest. Ascend students are taught to think logically and objectively, but are also encouraged to be imaginative and creative, and it is the development of these parallel talents that allows Ascend students to be uniquely themselves.
Liberal learning liberates
We equip our students with the broad capabilities—prized in any era,which will allow them to flourish—whatever the future brings. At Ascend, liberal learning liberates.
