Welcome to Assumption High School! We are an academic community alive with spirit. Our school is rich with the tradition of the Sisters of Mercy and a special place in the hearts of our students, alumnae, faculty, staff, and parents. We hope that your journey through our website will enable you to catch some of the spirit that makes Assumption unique among the high schools in Louisville.
We are a faith community, guided by the gospel teachings of the Catholic Church, and we enjoy very special prayer services and liturgies, along with interesting theology classes and a four-year overnight retreat program.
Our compassion is inspired by people with need, both within and outside of our school. Our service program is integral to our curriculum, and our service clubs actively work for the betterment of both communities.
Integrity matters in our community, and our students are confident young women who stand up for their beliefs. They are taught to be cognizant of the world around them and are encouraged to be contributing citizens.
We are empowered by a commitment to excellence. Our standards result in an education for our students that is second to none, one that prepares them for college and beyond.
And so, our values statement is “We are the community of Assumption where faith guides, compassion inspires, integrity matters, and excellence empowers.”
Throughout this website you will find many aspects of these values, such as spiritual development, academic challenges, athletic opportunities, enrichment programs, artistic accomplishments, and our close and supportive community.
Please contact us with your questions, and consider setting up an appointment for a visit. We are happy to speak with you or give you a tour. Call us at 502-458-9551.

Sincerely yours in mercy,
