COVID-19 IMPORTANT SCHOOL UPDATE

Effective October 5, 2020, we are concurrently running two methods of instructional delivery for our families.

  1. We are processing student requests for in-school learning, and we have begun teaching in our classrooms.
  2. And, our online learning process is still in place for those students who choose to continue working from home.
We have installed plexiglass at student entrances, we have secured an enormous amount of PPE, including hand sanitizing stations throughout the school, masks, gloves, and sanitizing solutions that clean desks between classes. To ensure personal safety, we have a full-time, armed Safe School Officer on campus each day, and Margate Police Department officers are also assigned to the school at various times.

 

*When registering, it is best to use a desktop computer rather than a mobile phone.

COVID NEWS & UPDATES

 

 

We’re OPEN! We opened up for in-person learning on October 5, 2020, and the parents who responded to the survey have already sent their students into the school for a regular day, starting at 9:00 am and ending at 3:00 pm..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Safety protocols have been installed and implemented throughout the school.

Free breakfast and free lunch are being served each day. Students need to be here before 9:00 am to get the free breakfast in time.
For those families who didn’t fill out the survey and who now want their child to attend, please email delmy.garcia@ascendacademycharter.com. She will schedule a start date for the student, no later than five days from the date of request.
Students will have their temperatures checked before they can enter the school. If he or she is exhibiting any other COVID symptoms, we will call you, and the student will need to be picked up immediately and taken for a COVID test before coming back to school with a negative test result.

 

MEAL SCHEDULE

We will be serving meals for online students (pick up at school) each Wednesday, from 8:00 am to noon. Five lunches and five breakfasts will be given out each week.

SAFE. SUPPORTED. SUCCESSFUL.

The leadership, teachers, and staff of Ascend Academy are committed to providing students with individualized opportunities for academic and social success – in a safe and engaging environment. We know the available options, we understand the limitations faced by many of our students, and we want to ensure a solid future for them. Since 2015, Ascend Academy Charter High School has empowered, supported, and championed youth when others have given up.

At Ascend, we are there for our students as a support system and as their advocates. With our blended learning model, students learn at their own pace using our online Apex curriculum, while having certified teachers in the classrooms, using one-on-one strategies, to help students navigate and master the content. Our curriculum meets each student at their academic level while challenging them to grow.

Our culture is built on empowering youth, believing in them, and challenging them to do their very best. Our supportive and encouraging environment shows students they have the smarts and are capable of succeeding as long as they apply themselves.

“Ascend Academy Charter High School gave me a chance to make up my credits and still graduate on time. They cared enough to give me a plan that worked!”
KRYSTAL B, 2017 GRADUATE

“Public high schools are too big, but Ascend is small enough that my teachers and the administrators got to know me fast and were able to help me with the advanced classes I needed to graduate.”
MELISSA C., 2018 GRADUATE

“I feel safe at Ascend Academy High School. There is a police officer at the door as I walk in each morning, and I don’t worry about kids causing problems because the staff cares about our safety.”
ELIZABETH M., SENIOR

“The vision of Ascend Academy Charter High School has not wavered from its original concept:  individualize student learning plans, provide an impeccably clean, secure environment, and hire staff who effectively combine curriculum content and compassion every day. It’s simple. And it works. Just ask our graduates.”
