Ascension Lutheran School

  • Ascension Lutheran School has been established by the congregation to act as an extension of the home, forming a unique partnership with parents in the Christian training and instruction of its youth.
  • Since the school is an arm of the church, supporting its ministry to the family, member children will not be charged tuition to attend.
  • If openings in classrooms exist, non"member children will be accepted and charged tuition.
  • Non"member families must meet with the pastor prior to enrollment and also attend the pastor's adult information class in order to become acquainted with the environment of Christian learning that children will be immersed in at this school.

School Notes

  • Ascension is a School Choice school.  We also do require that all non-Lutheran families that choose to send their children to our school, go through pastor's adult instruction class (10-12 weeks) in order to learn and understand what we believe and will be teaching your children.  The home is the base for education and home, church, and school must all work together.
