The Mission Statement of the Ascension Christian Schools
The mission statement is a single sentence that summarizes the vision and mission and philosophy of the school. The statement is the basis from which the schools operate all their activities. It provides an overall direction for the entire system. The Mission Statement is:
“We provide a Christ-centered environment of educational excellence where every student has an opportunity to belong, to believe, and to become a light for the world!”
The Vision of Ascension Christian Schools
The Vision of Ascension Christian Schools comes from Psalms 68:6 – God places the lonely in families; he sets the captives free and gives them joy.”
At Ascension Christian Schools, we believe that everyone needs a place to Belong, then be given the opportunity to Believe in the promises of God, and finally, everyone needs to Become the person God intended them to be.
In the same way, students who attend Ascension Christian Schools will be given a place to belong first. Students will have the opportunity to connect to others who share similar interests-whether it is in classes, clubs, small groups, or sports. Each student has the opportunity to connect to other students and school leaders. In these opportunities students will learn about God and his world through a quality-driven educational system and the daily Christian culture that is alive and well in the schools. Finally, students can begin to understand the plan that God has for their lives by discovering and using their gifts and talents in a Christ-centered environment.
The Mission of Ascension Christian Schools
The Mission of Ascension Christian Schools connects the vision of “Becoming” all that God has planned, and becoming “A light for the world.” The mission verse comes from Matthew 5:14-17- You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
The motto of Ascension Christian Schools is, “Lighting a Path for the World.” Ascension Christian Schools as the “City on a Hill” provide a guiding light to others that they may see the goodness which is Christ and seek to find Him through all who represent Ascension Christian.
