Assumption is the only girls' school in Louisville to offer the Family Program, helping to build community across classes. Visit our athletics website for more information on Rocket sports. Assumption also has a well-developed, yearly international exchange program where students spend four weeks of study in Buenos Aries, Argentina, or Johannesburg, South Africa.


Liturgies, theology classes, retreats, and service opportunities can help your daughter deepen her faith in God and belief in herself.
Assumption has a comprehensive Campus Ministry program with daily morning prayer, fourteen Masses and prayer services through out the year, four-year overnight retreat program, and a four-year service learning curriculum. 
Mission Week is a unique week in February dedicated to the exploration of Assumption's mission, as set forth by the Sisters of Mercy. Classes are suspended while students engage in a variety of service and experiential activities focused on the mantra: I am a valuable person. I have dignity and worth. What I do makes a difference. 
Freshmen participate in outreach by visiting local neighborhoods and expanding their knowledge of their local community. Visiting speakers discuss topics such as body image and building inner confidence and resilience. Sophomores take part in community service through their ACTS (A Christian Through Service) agency and learn self-defense moves from a local self defense expert. Juniors have the opportunity to job shadow career professionals and help define their desired college major, or spend a day on a college visit to explore their higher education choices. Seniors may immerse themselves on an ARISE mission trip in Kentucky, the United States, or in Latin America; and some who stay at Assumption hear from guest speakers on topics such as dating violence prevention, money management in college, and more. Every student has the opportunity to apply for the BLOOM Theater Project where students write, direct, and produce original dramatic plays performed throughout the Louisville community.
