Assumption School, like any other institution where projected cash flow is necessary to remain solvent, depends on your obligation of tuition payments to meet the day-to-day expenses of running a school. The mission of Assumption Parish is to make the teachings of Jesus Christ a reality by providing meaningful educational experiences for all in an environment integrated by values with faith, community, prayer, and service. The mission of the Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Des Moines is to provide meaningful educational experiences for children/adolescents in an environment integrated by Gospel values, which nurture faith, community, prayer, service. Therefore, we believe that Catholic Schools exist to teach the traditions and doctrines of the Catholic Church and to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Parents are the primary educators and that Catholic schools are partners with parents in the education of their children/adolescents, Each child/adolescent in a Catholic school, regardless of race, cultural heritage, or gender, grows in self-esteem through the development of his/her talents, skills, and interest, Catholic schools will provide a warm and caring environment where children/adolescents will be challenged to learn the essential curriculum regardless of learning rate or style. All children/adolescents in Catholic schools will learn the value of human dignity and the concepts of peace and justice to enable them to be participants in a global society. This mission is both an awesome responsibility and a great challenge. To serve well in the education /formation ministry of the Catholic Church is no easy task. To be successful, all elements of the ministry must work in a cooperative and harmonious manner. All elements of the ministry include teachers, students, administration, and parents of Assumption School. The positive outlook and attitude brought to school, and the leaving behind of negative thoughts or issues will bring about the educational atmosphere that will best allow children to succeed.
