Assumption Academy, Bergen County:
Assumption Academy is a PreK-8 Catholic elementary school located at 35 Jefferson Avenue in Emerson in Bergen County, NJ. We have an average class size of 19 and provide a wide range of modern facilities and activities for our pupils. Before and after school care is available all days that school is in session and all school vacation days (except emergency closing and federal holidays). Summer care is also available. At Assumption Academy, we strive to create a warm, secure and joyful environment where children will continue learning respect for all of God’s creation.
We, at Assumption Academy, are committed to the upholding of Catholic values through the integration of the Gospel message with every facet of school life. We challenge ourselves never to forget the unique individuality of each child in our school. Our educational program, which is supported by a nurturing, caring environment, includes all the skills and technology needed to succeed spiritually, socially and academically.
As vital members of our Faith Community who pray, study, and celebrate together, our children are encouraged to carry with them into the World Community the Good News of Jesus Christ.
The K through 8 curriculum at Assumption Academy follows all standards set by the Archdiocese of Newark and the State of New Jersey. Further, it is Middle States accredited and meets the more stringent requirements of academy designation.
As befits an academy, our middle school curriculum incorporates extensive language instruction, Science Lab, Algebra I & II and Honors Literature. The students use technology throughout the curriculum and lessons are integrated across subjects. As an example, when 6th grade studied ancient Egypt in social studies, they also recorded an Egyptian "News Report" via webcast in technology class, made sarcophagi in art, and mummified chicken in the science lab.
The whole school has access to wireless laptops, classroom computers, and a state-of-the-art computer lab complete with distance-learning capabilities to ensure technology integration throughout the grades.
Our Early Childhood curriculum incorporates all the specials the children in K through 8 receive. They enjoy Spanish with the Spanish teacher, art with the art teacher, music with the music teacher, gym with the physical education teacher, and technology in the computer lab with the technology teacher. In addition, religion is a core subject at Assumption Academy which they receive every day in their classrooms.
Assumption Academy is licensed by the State of New Jersey to provide Before and After Care for students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Our philosophy is to provide a place where the children will receive quality care in a safe, well-maintained and pleasant environment.
Before Care is provided for those students whose parents need an early start, and is a quiet time for children to get ready for their school day. After Care includes time for homework assignments, with assistance if necessary from a staff member, and indoor or outdoor playtime. The students will have monitored access to computers with internet service.
Before Care is held in the library and children are escorted from Before Care to the cafeteria when it is time for their teachers to bring them to their classrooms. After Care begins in the cafeteria, and students are escorted there by their classroom teacher or aide.
Before and After Care is staffed with teachers from the Academy and other long-time approved caregivers who meet the necessary standards. A child can only be released to a parent or to a person authorized, in writing, by a parent. Authorized individuals must show identification to pick-up a child.
