Ascension Catholic School

Where Faith, Family and Academic Excellence are United as One


Letter from the Principal

Thank you for your interest in Ascension Catholic School, where faith, family, and academic excellence are united as one!  We employ a challenging, faith-based curriculum to help students reach their personal and academic potential. Our faculty partners with families to create a positive, supportive environment that values the individual contributions of each community member.  During their time at Ascension, students learn the importance of hard work, self-discipline, and service to others.  Our graduates leave Ascension ready to make a difference in the world while confidently succeeding in St. Louis’s most rigorous college preparatory high schools.

If you are a prospective parent interested in joining the Ascension Family, please explore our website and feel free to contact me with any questions.

- Ms. O'brecht, Principal
