We have been investing in future generations since our founding in 1920 when Servite Sisters of Mary came to start our school.Assumption Catholic School follows the Archdiocese of Denver's curriculum. Our philosophy is that a parish Catholic school exist to cultivate in students a deep love for Jesus Christ, fidelity to his Church, and commitment to the dignity of the human person. The Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Schools give parents confidence that their investment in a Catholic school education will support their child’s complete development and personal success. A rigorous, time-tested curriculum taught by committed faculty in a faith-based and nurturing environment results in measurably accomplished academic achievement.
Catholic teachings, faith, and traditions, are integral to a curriculum that reinforces what is taught at home, including virtues of discipline, respect, and responsibility which will provide guidance and inspiration as your child navigates life’s challenges.
Our curriculum is under constant study and revision as we become aware of new trends and teaching tools. Textbooks are to be considered tools to aid in the teaching of the curriculum. We have chromebooks, Ipads, document cameras, projectors, and other tech devices to help our children learn using state of the art technology. All students receive Art, Music, PE, and Health along with their regular academic curriculum.
Preschool Course of Instruction
Assumption Catholic Preschool teachers are dedicated to educating young children–socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually–from the ages of 4 to 5 years old. Early education is crucial for later learning, so we’ve designed our school environment to be a place for students to learn, explore, play and connect through mutual trust and respect. The basic program in preschool includes the following: religion, language, mathematics, personal-social development, social studies, media-art, music, science, and sensory-motor development. Pre-K students have a specials class each day.
Elementary School Course of Instruction
The basic program in kindergarten through grade three includes religion, language arts, mathematics, history, science, music, art, and physical education. The basic program in grades four through eight include religion, mathematics, language arts, history, science, fine arts, physical education, health, and safety.

All Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Schools students in grades 2 – 8 take the Reading and Math Star Assessments.
The assessments are short tests that provide teachers with learning data. Star tests are computer adaptive, which means they adjust to each answer your child provides. This helps teachers get the best data to help your child in the shortest amount of testing time (about one-third of the time other tests take).
Assumption students take Star Assessments three times a year: fall, winter, spring.
