Help Us Provide Free Kindergarten This Fall

Kindergarten teaches vital skills. "Kindergarten is critical to creating positive adult outcomes," said Terese Shimshock, Principal of St. Peter Claver Catholic School. Children learn persistence and motivation; they learn that school is important. And, at Ascension Catholic Academy schools, they learn that they are beloved children of God. Children in our urban areas have never needed these lessons more.

A Future Full of Hope!

Our scholars are on the path to high school graduation, post-secondary education and a faith-filled life.
