Assumption High School
Assumption Catholics School students in grades 9 through 12 attend Assumption High School. Students find the family-like atmosphere at Assumption a positive environment in which to prepare themselves for the future academically, socially, and spiritually. At AHS students are given the opportunity to learn and develop leadership and social skills through a rigorous curriculum, student support programs, and extra curricular activities. Assumption High School has long been recognized for providing a quality academic experience for students in the Wisconsin Rapids area.
From the Principal
Today my birthday happens to coincide with the opening of school, and the opening of school seems to me like a birthday present.
Assumption High School has produced some of the finest professionals, public servants, parents, pastors, and just plain good people in the state of Wisconsin over the last 50+ years. It is an honor, as well as a joy, to work here.
The Assumption Faculty work diligently to maintain high standards for teaching and learning. Students here know that their daily workload will be rigorous, yet they prefer to rise to the challenge on the premise that nothing good is acquired without labor. The school provides multiple opportunities for additional assistance on academic ventures. Our Academic Support Center, the Library, and After-School Tutoring are there to provide students with help in acquiring the skills and knowledge they will need in college and career.
Assumption parents have insisted that our school provide a rich Catholic culture and a meaningful context so that young adults can get their moral bearings in a society that for the most part has lost its Christian traditions. The school continues to build in the Christian humanist framework, relying on the arts as well as Revelation and Catholic doctrine to help shape the person in Christian virtues and intellectual discipline.
Assumption continues to provide an after-school playground where young people gather for athletics, for academic extra-curriculars, and for lively conversation.
Assumption High School is open to all who are seeking to find fulfillment in the school’s mission: To inspire excellence and personal growth grounded in Catholic principles and tradition. If you have not already joined our community, we invite you to stop in and check out the Royals!
