Dear Future Kindergarten Parent, Finding the right Kindergarten can be a very daunting task. "We need to find the school where my child will feel safe, included, and challenged", or "I want my child to receive individual attention so that he or she can become a confident successful first grader!", or "We would like our child to be part of a school where the needs of young children are a priority, not a mandate."
I am happy to say that Assumption Academy can address all of those concerns and fill all of your Kindergarten aged child's needs. Every child should be treated as an individual, not every school is a perfect fit for every child. Assumption offers both half and full day programs, our class sizes are small - never more than 15 students, and our staff incorporates discovery learning, play learning, communication and collaboration within the state curriculum and NAEYC standards. Small class sizes, best practices in Early Childhood Education (as validated by both NAEYC and Middle States), experienced teachers, and an aid in every classroom, all make Assumption Academy Kindergarten one of the VERY best. Assumption alumni are among the highest achieving students in the Arch Diocese and the School Districts. The foundation for a life long love of learning truly does begin at Assumption Academy.
Yes, Assumption Academy is a Catholic school and adheres to the guidelines of the Arch Diocese of Philadelphia. Written within the School Mission Statement we proclaim that We share in the mission of the parish of Our Lady of the Assumption Church by providing religious formation and instruction in the Roman Catholic faith while welcoming everyone and respecting the faith traditions of all our students. All children are welcome to learn and grow under the loving direction of the best teachers in the world. Catholic Schools are tuition based schools and we are no different, but please DO NOT allow the cost of sending your child to Assumption Academy be a deterrent. Scholarships are available to anyone in need of financial assistance. This year alone $20,000 in Kindergarten scholarships were awarded to our school. Full day Kindergarten can cost less than half day Kindergarten in the school district if After Care is needed.
To schedule a tour or a "day in K"please call the school at 610-688-5277. Please consider Kindergarten at Assumption Academy - you won't be disappointed.
