In the spirit of the Catholic tradition, Assumption Catholic School is dedicated to the development of each student’s mind, heart, and soul. We strive to assist parents in forming their children in moral and academic excellence.
In a loving and giving community, Assumption will provide a quality education which fosters creativity and independent thinking as it focuses on religion, responsibility, and respect.
At Assumption School, we strive to instill four core characteristics in students:
• Catholic Faith Formation: Participation in community service projects is encouraged, where students work with the Knights of Columbus. They learn giving and sharing to be a life long value to nurture. Daily prayer in classes and as a school community reinforces the love and sharing responsibility we have to each other as Catholics. The Catholic faith is formed throughout the school experience, but beautifully through the catechism preparation for the Sacrament of First Communion in second grade. Assumption seeks to develop compassionate, lifelong Catholics with a strong faith foundation in a diverse, student-centered Catholic community.
• Family Environment: Students at Assumption are recognized as individuals within a family environment. We strongly encourage parental involvement throughout all facets of the student experiences. We promote mentoring academic cooperation throughout the school with a weekly reading buddies program. And a bonding opportunity in our faith formation in our weekly Mass buddy system. It is a beautiful extension of our community faith family for both the younger children and establishing a responsibility for our faith in our older students.
• Nurturing Community: There is a comprehensive sports program at Assumption as well as a plethora of after school clubs and activities for students. Participation in Liturgical Ministries, such as Altar Server Program is encouraged. And to integrate the students into the community, a Children’s Mass is scheduled every 4th Sunday of the month at the 9:00 am Mass.
• Rigorous Academics: We strive to provide small classes with one on one instruction. In fact, enrollment capacity allows for 20 students in each class. Most classes average 15 to 18 students, so students receive individual attention, promoting an intimate learning environment. All teachers are state licensed and require religious certification through the Archdiocese of Denver which promotes excellent standardized test scores. Field trips are also an integral part of our curriculum, providing students with a multitude of experiences and exposure to opportunities in which they may not have otherwise been able to participate. 97% of Catholic School graduates go on to college. Investing in a Catholic education has long-lasting benefits!
Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Denver exist to cultivate in students and the whole school community a love for Jesus Christ, fidelity to His Church, and commitment to the dignity of the human person.
Assumption Catholic School develops the whole student – mind, body, and spirit – in a loving community, rooted in our Catholic faith.
“We are the heart and hands of Jesus.”
