The goal of Catholic education is to assist parents in forming their children's moral character and to prepare students' minds, hearts, and hands for their vocations in life so they may live wisely and generously in an increasingly complex world.
Every student enrolled at Assumption takes a formal religion course each semester. These courses are designed to pass on the Catholic intellectual philosophy, history, and tradition. Gospel values and Catholic Church social teachings are also integrated into each area of our curriculum. As a means to see their faith in action, students are also required to perform and document a minimum of 10 hours of service each semester since service is an integral part of the Gospel message. Some students help at their parishes and at school or school-related functions, while others volunteer for not-for-profit community organizations that promote Christian values.
Assumption provides various opportunities to cultivate the habit of prayer, the practice of the faith, and participation in liturgical life. Each morning begins with prayer, as does each individual class. We hold all-school Masses on Holy Days and the first Friday of each month. All other Fridays when school is in session, Mass is held at 7:00 a.m. in our chapel. In addition, there is a yearly retreat for each grade level, where each class comes together off of the school's campus to reflect on their lives and all God has given them. Assumption also holds a Communal Penance service each semester, and the Rosary is recited during Homeroom or in the Chapel several times a year.
