Ascend is at a pivotal point in its development. Having grown from a network office of seven staff to close to 100, and from four schools to 15, in seven years, and having developed a unique educational and cultural model that is driving ever-increasing academic success, Ascend has adopted a five-year growth plan to double the number of schools operated and students served. Critical to the success of this growth plan is identifying, conducting due diligence on, scoping, and undertaking renovation projects on facilities to house our new schools. Unlike the schools operated by many charter management organizations, Ascend schools are all located in privately leased facilities, and are designed to reflect our high aspirations for teaching and learning. Our facilities are modern, bright, architecturally striking, comfortable, and well-suited to our liberal arts academic program.
Ascend is a network of K-12 public charter schools serving 5,500 students across 15 schools in Central Brooklyn. Our mission is to provide our students an extraordinary education, placing them firmly on the path to success in college and beyond.
We guide our students to think critically and independently, and to enjoy education as an end in itself. We teach a rich and rigorous liberal arts curriculum that nurtures students' natural curiosity about the world. We foster a positive, non-punitive school culture where students feel connected, empowered, and safe to take academic risks. And we design our school buildings to reflect the incredible accomplishments that happen within their walls and our high aspirations for teaching and learning. Discover more about BAHS.
