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.
Welcome Back Bulldogs!
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! We hope you had a restful summer and are excited for the promise of a new school year. We are very much looking forward to welcoming all scholars back into the school building after what has been a challenging year for us all. We acknowledge and recognize that the pandemic has impacted each of us in different and varying degrees, and we know that students will also have varying and different needs. Our mantra for this new school year is Charting the path forward. We can. We will. Together, we are strong. Closing gaps that were created due to the pandemic will be a collective effort, and we are committed to strengthening the connection between school and home as we work together to ensure all students experience success and growth in the new year. We also know that transitioning back to in-person learning will likely be an adjustment for students. We are committed to ensuring that students experience a sense of safety and consistency in a supportive community. As in previous years, Brownsville Ascend boasts strong staff retention rates, with 90% of our teachers and staff returning to serve the scholars of Brownsville. Our Core Values will continue to drive the work we do on a daily basis. Our task is urgent, but together, are strong.
