Hey friends! Can anyone tell me where I could get the tie for the older girls uniform? I ordered 2 from Shreveport Gymnastics over a month ago and they are still not in and no ETA for arrival!
I really wanted her to wear her dress uniform tomorrow 🤦🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️
Does anyone know when Lands end is having uniform sale before school?
It’s no secret that one of our very favorite things is being out in the community talking to children and adults about body safety and child abuse prevention through our Knowledge is Power program. This week we were blessed to start one of our mornings with the wonderful students from Ascension Classical School of South Shreveport, their amazing Headmaster Dena Howard, and the generous parents from their PTO, who selected the Gingerbread House as their missions outreach organization this school year.

Pictured here is Executive Director Jessica Miller teaching kids about their Safety Network during the presentation.

THANK YOU Ascension Classical School for your generosity and for being proactive in promoting age-appropriate body safety lessons for your students!
Due to winter weather warning for our area, ACS will be closed tomorrow, Tuesday, January 16th. Bundle up and stay safe, Admirals!

Our Logic School boasts some really unique opportunities, including fencing. Taught by our very own Mrs. Desonier and special guest Mr. Desonier, the students learned the basics. We have invested in the equipment and the program will continue well beyond 2022!

Dissecting owl pellets in first grade today!


Greater love has no man then that he lay down his life for his friends”

Today we held a special service, built around three prayers: Remembering those who have served, gratitude for those who served and a plea for peace. Students heard “In Flanders Field” and wore the traditional Poppy. Numerous veterans were there and our Veterans wall has expanded. Thank You to all who have served!


Busy day today … Nature Studies created a pumpkin Admiral … at least I know what happened to my hat now…

Ascension is pleased to announce the hire of its new head of school, Dr. Timothy Kovalcik! Dr. Kovalcik is coming to ACS from Millikin University in Decatur, Illinois, where he serves as professor of history. He holds a master's degree in theology from Asbury Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. in history from the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom. Dr. Kovalcik also serves as scholar-in-residence at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Decatur and has been board president for Decatur Christian School.

We are also excited to announce that Dr. Kovalcik will be joining us in person to speak at tomorrow night’s Logic School Open House at 6 p.m.! If you are able to attend, please join us in welcoming Dr. Kovalcik to Ascension where he will officially begin his duties in June.

For those who wish to attend in person, we look forward to seeing you.

For those who prefer to join in virtually, please check in here at 6 p.m. on Thursday for our livestream.


What happens in the Logic School (grades 6-8)? As Dorothy Sayers has said regarding this age, students are argumentative to the core, so why not teach them how to do it correctly?

Come learn more at this week’s Logic School Open House - Thursday, February 4 at 6 p.m. - or for more information visit


Come meet our wonderful teachers and see why our families have chosen to drop anchor here and become Ascension Admirals! ❤️⚓️💙

In 2019, Ascension completed and moved into its classically designed new building, located at the corner of Norris Ferry and Southern Loop. If you haven't seen our facilities, come visit at our Open Houses at 6 p.m. on January 28 (grades K-5) or February 4 (grades 6-7)!


“We have unapologetically high standards for the teachers and staff members that have influence on our children for 35 hours a week. We're now three years in, and we’ve been completely impressed and put at ease when handing over our precious daughter into their care as she learns under their instruction.” -Amanda and Scott Witte, Ascension parents


What is the outcome of a classical Christian education? Read the Good Soil report from the Association of Classical & Christian Schools for the results of the University of Notre Dame's study of 24-42 year old alumni from public, secular private, Catholic, evangelical Christian, religious homeschool, and ACCS (classical Christian) schools, on topics of life-choices, preparation, attitudes, values, opinions, and practices.


Classical education is the new “old way” of educating students, and it has a long history of success. Learn more:
