Ancillae-Assumpta Academy is a private, co-educational, Catholic elementary school conducted by the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Our educational philosophy, given the acronym, R.I.C.E., promotes an integral understanding and practice of shared responsibility, human interdependence, dynamic creativity, and people empowerment.
In an atmosphere which emphasizes gospel values, our students learn in theory and experience, to appreciate the importance of a global viewpoint and to see the inter relatedness of peoples, which prepares them for the challenges and demands of the future.
To meet these demanding challenges, we dedicate all our resources: a liberating theology, quality teachers, structural know-how, a constantly evolving curriculum, critical teaching and thinking skills.
In a spirit of hope, we share responsibility, work interdependently, think creatively, and promote the empowerment of people.
