Our Mission

Cade with BlocksThe mission at ASCEND is to view the child first and the disorder second. We strive to meet the individual needs of each child. We believe that each child must be nurtured to at all levels, physically, emotionally, spiritually, and educationally. Family input and parental choice are cornerstone to the success of the school. Parents are an integral part of the programming choices, fundraising, and community events. The ultimate goal for us is that each child and family affected by autism will “Reach New Heights”.
