Accreditation

Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary School (PreK-8) has been accredited through the State of Missouri Nonpublic School Accrediting Association. Annually, Assumption curriculum and programs are reviewed and have remained fully accredited without
violation. In spring, 2025, Assumption will be visited by a group of Professional educators analyzing our “Plan of action for 2025-2031."

In addition, we take pride in the fact that Assumption piloted the curriculum design process for the Archdiocese of St. Louis using a platform known as CHALK. Assumption is actively using the curriculum as a model to be used by all Catholic elementary schools throughout the diocese.

Philosophy and Mission General Information

The Mission Statement of Assumption School leads us in developing faith experiences, educational programs, curriculum and activities for our students. We are committed to communicating these statements annually with parents, students, alumni, parishioners, and friends of our schools. Annually, the Faculty/Staff and Board of Education, review the mission statement for the purpose of focusing for the year ahead. As a means of ensuring integrity and validity of these statements, the Board of Education will form a committee every five (5) years, which includes Board members, parents, faculty and staff for the purpose of full review and if deemed necessary, revision.

(Based on the Philosophy of the St. Louis Archdiocese)
