Mission Week is a designated week in the second semester when classes are suspended and students are involved in a variety of enrichment and service activities. Mission Week is organized in collaboration with hundreds of community members and organizations. In 2009 and 2011, Assumption was presented with the Catholic Schools for Tomorrow Award for Innovations in Education by the National Catholic Education Association based on the Mission Week program (2009) and the BLOOM Theatre Project, written and produced in conjunction with Mission Week (2011).
Awards were granted in the areas of innovation in promoting Catholic identity and community involvement.
Our mission, as it guides all of our programs, reflects our vision that our graduates will be socially responsible women committed to Gospel living, lifelong learning, and a life of leadership and service in society. Our annual Mission Week project gives us the opportunity to reinforce these aspects in an innovative, educational experience.
