Education with Purpose, Value and Excellence
Assumption offers a mapped curriculum that infuses National Catholic Standards and Missouri Learning Standards, and includes worship, prayer, and our service programs. This authentic Catholic education provides robust QUALITY and a vibrant focus on VALUES. It is education with a PURPOSE. The motto of Assumption, " Learning, Loving & Living Christ!" is a lived reality within the school through attitude and action.
Using best instructional and assessment practices, our holistic approach to learning, "MIND, BODY, and SPIRIT", is rooted in faith to engage students in educational opportunities creating successful, independent, and motivated learners.
Assumption school is accredited by the Missouri Nonpublic School Accrediting Association. In addition to certified classroom teachers, there is a tremendous support team : Two learning consultants, Nine teacher aides, a full-time nurse, full-time counselor, two Reading interventionists, four Professional Learning Community (PLC) Leaders, four "Specialty" Teachers (Music, Art, Science and Physical Education), as well as a full-time receptionist and secretary.
Faith is nurtured at Assumption School.
Providing an authentic Catholic Education includes opening each school day with student lead prayer. Every Monday, an assigned class develops a prayer service which occurs in the Chapel for all students and faculty. We celebrate Mass weekly with our students. Each Tuesday our students grades K-2 attend Mass. Grades 3 through 5 attend Mass each Wednesday, while 6-8 attend each Thursday. There are several All- School Masses throughout the year, which are scheduled on Thursdays. On the first Monday of the month, students attend Adoration. During the school year students also attend Stations of the Cross, and Rosary.
There are scheduled opportunities for the Sacrament of Reconciliation during Advent and Lent, student retreats, other faith-filled events, as well as organized service experiences to develop each student's personal understanding of bringing Christ to the world.
The faculty and staff at Assumption School work diligently to support and affirm parents in their role as primary teachers of their children's faith. An environment of joy and Christ-like love is fostered and enables students to do more than just learn about God. They come to truly know God and experience His love through all of the people who care for them.
