  • 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.
