How do students get to their Ascend program?

After their regular school day, students will head to the Schroeder Hall Library to get “picked up” and checked in by their Ascend Program leaders.

How do I pick up my student from their Ascend program?

Each Ascend program takes place in a different area on campus. After the program is over, you will meet your student and their Ascend program leader outside of the building that the program takes place. If your student is going to Einstein’s After Care, then you will pick up your child from aftercare.

What do I do if I am running late on picking up my student?

If you are running late, please send an email to your program leader and let them know. They may decide to drop your student off at Einstein’s After Care, and an additional fee may apply.

Are Ascend programs only for Notre Dame Academy students?

Yes, due to the Ascend programs extension of the school day, these programs are only available to Notre Dame Academy students.
