BACK TO Private Schools

Ascension Episcopal School is a private pre-kindergarten-through-12th-grade school with three campuses in Lafayette. It has been recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education. The River Ranch location serves children in pre-kindergarten and kindergarten, while its downtown campus enrolls students in first through seventh grades. Students in eighth through 12th grades attend the high school located at Sugar Mill Pond.

Learning opportunities at Ascension Episcopal cover a range of subjects at each of the school’s three campus locations. Preschool students benefit from class trips to the library and weekly music classes. The elementary campus offers subjects from language arts and math to social studies, art, music and technology skills. Students can also choose to take electives, such as choir, theater, weaving and sculpture.

Ascension’s high school campus challenges students with a number of accelerated learning and college preparatory opportunities. The school’s Institute for Business allows high school juniors and seniors to take intensive courses in finance, economics and entrepreneurship.

In addition to excellent academic programs, students can also benefit from joining competitive team sports. Beginning in 5th grade, students can participate in Ascension Episcopal School’s athletic programs, including football, baseball, cross country, tennis and soccer.
