Lower School

The mission of every Ascend school is to equip our students with the knowledge, confidence, and character to succeed in college and beyond.


By offering a rich liberal arts education in a supportive environment, we animate children’s natural sense of curiosity and prepare students to think on their own, thrive on their own, and engage the world as informed, responsible citizens.

Phase 3: Preference Survey for Remote vs. In-person learning


Click here to complete the survey


The purpose of this survey is for us to collect your current preferences for remote or in-person learning for your child in Phase 3, which begins on November 30, 2020 and continues until January 22, 2021. As a reminder, you will be able to change your stated preferences before the start of Phase 4, and before each subsequent phase.

In Phase 3, 100% in-person learning may become available for a portion of students. Students who are prioritized for 100% in-person learning will attend classes in person every day, in a safe, physically-distant manner. Students may be prioritized for in-person learning based on grade level, or based on their unique circumstances and challenges, or their special needs that cannot be met through remote learning.

You may select 100% remote learning at any point and your request will be honored. However, you may only select 100% in-person learning at the beginning of the Phase. In other words, if you start 100% remote, you will have to wait until the next Phase to request in-person learning. We will try to accommodate the in-person preferences of our families. However, space limitations due to physical distancing mandates limit our ability to do so.

We will communicate the decision about remote and in-person learning for Phase 3 by November 6, 2020.

Please complete this survey by November 3, 2020.
