Welcome from Principal

Welcome to Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary School!

Assumption School is a Catholic elementary school located in the beautiful foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains in Pasadena, California. The beauty and majesty of the mountains are a perfect backdrop for the sacred mission of our school. When you walk onto our campus you will immediately experience the joy that permeates our environment and know that something important is happening here! Our close community of students, alumni, parents, parishioners, faculty, staff and friends works tirelessly to ensure that our students reach their potential in a caring environment. Assumption is a school of formation that gives students exceptional preparation for life. We invite you to explore this website to learn about our mission, our history, our Catholic identity, our academic and co-curricular programs.

Our outstanding faculty and staff cultivates students who are eager to learn and who are challenged to excel in our rigorous academic program. We have high expectations for our students while supporting each child on his or her individual journey. Our graduates are accepted into our area Catholic high schools and go on to succeed at prestigious colleges and universities throughout the country. I invite you to explore the academics section of our website to learn about our academic focus and curriculum.

Most importantly, Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary School is about developing the whole child and forming students who will be faith-filled leaders in our world. Prayer and retreat experiences help our children to develop a personal relationship with Jesus. Character development and instruction in the virtues shapes their growth. Our rich Catholic tradition permeates all aspects of school life. Our service program teaches students to reach out to others. The gospel is alive at Assumption School!

We invite you to join us on the journey!

God bless you,

Carol Ward – Principal
