Looking Forward

As a private Catholic elementary school, Ancillae-Assumpta Academy has a clearly articulated and rigorous curriculum rooted in Gospel values and focused on 21st century skills. Since 1945, the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus have provided a unique educational program for students in pre-school through grade eight.  We remain committed to providing a wholesome, comprehensive program addressing the spiritual, academic, cultural, and physical needs of our students. 

Our RICE philosophy and beliefs differentiate us. Strategic planning in harmony with our beliefs has created a tradition of excellence and a commitment to educate with love and for love. With a shared vision for the future, we continue to dream, plan, do, and evaluate. And as such, we have developed a strategic plan for the school’s future in visioning, networking, curriculum, and staff development.
