I have had children at Ascension for 12 years and we have two more years until my youngest finishes with eighth grade and moves on to high school. My 5 older children, who all graduated from Ascension, were well prepared by the instruction and strong academics they received at Ascension. The teachers are very supportive and involved with the students and they encouraged, engaged and challenged my children. Communication with the teachers is easy and they are available for conferencing or just chatting at any time. The Catholic religion classes are not only taught to the students but the students are expected to live out the Gospel values with many service opportunities offered at each grade level.

My youngest is still a student at Ascension and my two older sons have now gone on to college, and I have been very involved in the school for the last 16 years. I can truly say that the teachers are dedicated, caring individuals who are excellent role models for the students. They work with the students on their own level and attempt to help all of them excel. Christian values are taught and demonstrated on a daily basis. The students test scores are much higher than average for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati schools and our students are well prepared for rigorous college prep high school curriculums. In recent years, several of our grads have been the valedictorians/salutatorians at Carroll High School. I highly recommend Ascension to anyone searching for a great education in a Christian environment.

Best school in the Dayton area! I believe every kid who would like to be Catholic, and get a great education the I strongly believe you should go to St. Albert the Great school.

My daughter has thrived at Ascension. The teachers are very supportive, ecouraging, and hands on. You have to be involved as a parent or they get you involved. They recognize when students need tutoring, as my daughter did, and they get the help needed. We love Ascnesion and the close knit community.

This is from the grandparent (who pays the tuition). I feel this is a great school and well worth the cost.


Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
