Ascend leads students on a great intellectual adventure and provides them with an exceptional college preparatory education.
Working at Ascend
Ascend is a network of K-12 public charter schools serving 5,500 students across 15 schools in Central Brooklyn. Our mission is to provide Brooklyn students an extraordinary education, placing them firmly on the path to success in college and beyond. We guide students to think critically and independently, and to enjoy education as an end in itself. At Ascend schools, we teach a rigorous liberal arts curriculum that nurtures students’ natural curiosity about the world. Across our organization, we foster a positive, nonpunitive school culture where students feel connected, empowered, and safe to take risks.
