The Heart of Assumption
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.
At its core, Assumption High School is a community with shared convictions about teaching and learning:
Students are here to develop skills and learn content. Secondary education requires more than just the mastery of reading, writing, and math skills. Students need to know the content of history and literature in order to develop a synthesis of the possible, the plausible, and the necessary.
A good teacher motivates, facilitates, and assesses to increase engagement and thereby the achievement of learning goals. Students need to know why something is worth knowing.
There is no one right way to teach, but good teachers prepare, engage in dialogue with students, and continually adjust their teaching in response to evidence of student learning.
Education should provide nourishment for the spiritual, aesthetic, and moral growth of students as well as intellectual competence.
Education requires the paring away of bad habits as it affirms commitment and responsibility.
Assumption High School is open to all who are seeking to find fulfillment in the school’s mission. If you have not already joined our community, we invite you to stop in and check out the Royals!
