Ascent Classical Academy recognizes students’ intellectual achievements through academic awards in individual subjects and in overall academic achievement.
Each quarter, Grammar School teachers have the opportunity to nominate their students for Character Awards, which are meant to honor and represent the school’s seven core virtues: courage, moderation, justice, responsibility, prudence, friendship, and wonder. Grammar School students are nominated based on their demonstration of one or several of these core virtues, and the nominations are read aloud by the Headmaster in front of the Grammar School.
Student of the Quarter
Each quarter, Upper School teachers have the opportunity to nominate students for the Student of the Quarter Award, which aims to recognize Upper School students who have made an impression with their attitude, behavior, demonstration of virtue, academic prowess, or a number of different things that may catch a teacher’s attention as noteworthy. All nominations are read aloud by the teacher who nominated each student during Upper School Opening Ceremonies.
