Principal’s Message    

Welcome to Assumption College School.  I hope that as you explore our school website you will have a chance to experience the incredible programs and community, we have here at Assumption College.

Over the last 3 decades we have established a reputation as a high academic achieving school that provides a wide variety of choices for students so they can grow to their full potential and be prepared for post-secondary school life. Our entire staff works hard so that every student feels that they belong and are supported in achieving their goals.

Outside of the classroom, there is so much for our students to experience.  In the 2022-23 school year, our Student Council organized several successful events including our Grade 9 Colour Night, several dances (homecoming, semi-formal, and glow), Coffee Houses, and the Spirit of Christmas activities.  In addition, Council organized several spirit weeks with the final spirit week ending with the school wide remake of the ACS Lip Dub video.      

Our extracurricular programs excelled in the 2022-23 school year as we celebrated several AABHN championships in Jr Girls Basketball, Jr Tennis, Field Hockey, Girls Ice Hockey, and Girls Soccer.  In the arts, we had an amazing NTS performance, a fun Grade 12 Murder Mystery performance, and the very popular “Assumption’s Got Talent” competition.  The talent here at Assumption is amazing.  In addition, our STEM students got to experience several activities every month, hi-lighted by the Quantum Physics Week, an Evening in STEM, and the Women in STEM Conference.   We are so proud of all our Lions who are involved in our extracurricular programs.

Our student body demonstrated kindness, care, and compassion to our ACS community throughout the year.  To support the Society of St Vincent DePaul, ACS collected over 11,000 food items through “We Scare Hunger” and raised over $10,000 dollars through our ACS Cares event.  In addition, we raised funds through donations and our popular Marketplace activity to raise money to support 30 families in our annual Pennies from Heaven Campaign.  Furthermore, we celebrated the rich diversity in our school community through our Black History Month Assembly, Amplify Your Culture, and Cultural Day.

I would like to thank and acknowledge our students and staff for their continued support and dedication to our school.  The collective work of so many individuals in our community has made Assumption College an AWESOME school.
