We are a Catholic elementary school built on a rich foundation of faith and education.
About Assumption BVM School
Our school, located in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, formed in 2010 as a result of a merger between All Saints Catholic and St. Stephen Regional Schools. We educate children from Preschool to Grade 8. Our School is part of the Allentown Diocese and is a Middle States Accredited School.
The mission of Assumption BVM School is to promote the academic, physical, moral, social, and spiritual development of our students so that they may serve God by serving others.
We encourage and assist our students in developing their unique God-given talents and intellect in order that they may grow in faith, virtue, vision, and purpose.
We believe that…
The primary responsibility of Assumption BVM School is in the transmission of the Catholic faith and values as an integral part of the Catholic Church.
Each child’s unique God-given gifts and talents should be developed and celebrated.
Every child is unique and has the opportunity to be guided and educated according to their individual needs in a faith-centered atmosphere.
Catholic education is fostered by the faith-filled example of our faculty, staff, students, parents, parishes, and their surrounding communities.
Our faculty instills a love for lifelong learning through ongoing personal and professional development experiences.
The students at Assumption BVM School should take ownership of their educational and moral responsibilities.
All children have a right to learn in a safe and loving environment.
As stewards of the Church, the entire school community shares in the responsibility of maintaining the financial viability of Assumption BVM School.
