Central Brooklyn Ascend Lower School
The mission of every Ascend school is to equip our students with the knowledge, confidence, and character to succeed in college and beyond.
By offering a rich liberal arts education in a supportive environment, we animate children’s natural sense of curiosity and prepare students to think on their own, thrive on their own, and engage the world as informed, responsible citizens.
