Once A Rose, Always A Rose

By: Bridget Coleman '18

I can honestly say, without any trace of falsity, that I wouldn’t be the person I am today if I hadn’t attended Assumption High School. But I can also say that I am who I am because of different reasons. Because Assumption taught me lessons I can’t learn in textbooks. Because I was shown that the first step in being successful in life is to be true to who I really am. Because I went to a place where I didn’t feel judged, where I wasn’t afraid to be silly, and where I wasn’t too shy to raise my hand first.

Assumption gave me confidence. When I first stepped through the doors, I was more anxious than excited. I kept my head down, my mouth shut, and myself out of people’s ways. But something was happening to me, something that I couldn’t see while I was in the moment but that I can notice now when I look back. I stopped being a seed planted in the dirt - I started to grow, to blossom. I made eye contact. I let my voice be heard. I ceased being afraid of situations where I had to talk to new people.

I’ve made some of the greatest connections of my life because this school gave me the tools I needed to forge my way in life. Yes, Assumption gave me knowledge and lots of it. But its most important lessons weren’t the ones I was tested on. I learned to be the first to reach out. I learned to be confident in my own abilities, enough that I feel that no matter what I pursue in college, I will be successful. I learned to listen with my whole being, to walk in others' shoes, and that I can and will make a difference.

Assumption has one big factor that sets it apart. The girls who graduate from this school don’t want to leave it. We love our school’s spirit and community so much that we ache to think we must move on. Like all good things, the end of our high school career must draw to a close, and yet we push forward knowing we are prepared to do great things. Once a rose, always a rose.

Assumption is Not a Place; it is a Feeling

By: Lauryn Grady '18
When I first meet people and tell them I go to an all-girls Catholic high school in Kentucky, they usually picture a line of silent, submissive students supervised by strict nuns brandishing switches. I always enjoy this presumed image of my school, but it could not be further from the truth. We are a group of empowered young women led by teachers who act as role models to us. Yes, Assumption High School is an all-girls Catholic high school in Kentucky, but it is so much more than that.

Assumption is not a place; it is a feeling. It is a community, an inclusive club, and a set of values. Of course, Assumption is foremost a school, and the loving community aspect of it enhances the academics. Assumption provides opportunities for all girls, no matter the academic level. But the most important part is the academic growth. My school not only keeps students on track with the national averages and educational curriculum, but it also prepares us for whatever future we choose. Our teachers take us well beyond what is required and teach us real-life skills that will help us succeed in college and beyond.

 I could have gone anywhere in Louisville for a great education, but I chose the school that educates me as a whole person: mind, body, and spirit. I am not the same girl I was when I started at Assumption, and I am so proud of what this school has led me to become. I am forever blessed to have received this amazing opportunity to be part of this lifelong group of empowered young women – young women who become the role models they once admired.
