We have the best teachers....they truly care about our students academically and socially.  Our teachers spend a great deal of time with each of our students educating them and preparing them for the next grade level.

Our kindergarten students and their teachers celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday by making hats and reading several of his terrific books.  We value reading at Assumption Catholic School!
Athletics are a wonderful way for our students to gather, celebrate, make life-long friendships and cheer each other on.  We value the lessons learned outside the classroom.

School Reviews

My son has been at Assumption since Pre-K3. I am thrilled with the academic offerings - Spanish, Music, Computers and Art all beginning in Kindergarten. Each of his teachers have been fantastic. They go beyond what is expected of a teacher and he absolutely loves to go to school each day, which is a parent''s dream. The Principal is very dedicated to the students and knows each student by name and greets them each day at the door. The Principal and the teachers are there way before the school day begins and stay late into the afternoon/evening. I love the extras provided for the families and the many activities that allow us to get to know each other and truly become a family. I also feel very safe while he is at school and thankful for that.
