Assumption Catholic School

Assumption Catholic School (ACS) has been educating students since 1963 in a well-maintained building on beautifully landscaped grounds in a quiet residential section of Perth Amboy.
A Catholic school education is an investment in your child's future.
Children that have a challenging and comprehensive course of studies in the primary grades establish a foundation that prepares them for success in high school, college, and life.
ACS features a full-day pre-K (for four-year-old) through 8th grade on a single campus. This offers a single drop-off and pick-up point for families with more than one elementary school child. ACS offers before-school and after-school care.
