Dear Parents,
We welcome you and your student to Assumption Catholic School. We have a 60-year track record of academic excellence, yet we constantly find new ways to deliver greater value for our children and families while embracing the opportunity to work together as a community. We support our Assumption families in their desire for a quality, caring Catholic education. We are very proud of our school, its students, and graduates. We look forward to meeting with you and your child. We welcome all committed parents to be a part of the dynamic Assumption Community.


We believe strong academics evolve out of strong core values, which are exhibited by community and parent involvement. We encourage curiosity and willingness to tackle complex challenges. We provide a comprehensive program accredited by the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) and co-accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). We have dedicated teachers, state-of-the-art fiberoptic internet connections in all classrooms, and extra-curricular activities, including baking, chess club, choir, drama, MUSE Band, yearbook, and even on-site tutoring and Extended Care. Students are also welcomed to supplement their learning with participation in the Catholic Youth Organization’s (CYO) teams like track, basketball, volleyball, and sand volleyball. Our graduates are well-prepared for high school, and have exceedingly high acceptance rates for admission into top Catholic high schools in the area.
