When & Where
Ascension Catholic School
Founded in 1938 by the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Carondelet with just four classrooms and a parish hall, Ascension Catholic School has been educating children of all denominations in the South Los Angeles community for over 70 years with almost 300 students in Pre-K and K-8 classrooms.
One of six regional accrediting associations in the United States, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) first accredited Ascension Catholic School in 2005, along with the Western Catholic Education Association. With these accreditations, Ascension Catholic School creates the highest quality learning experience for all students and insures that efficient and relevant systems are in place to fulfill those expectations for every child.
From this proud tradition, Ascension Catholic School will be celebrating its 75thAnniversary throughout 2013.
