The vision of the Ukrainian Catholic Bishops over a half century ago led to the establishment of Assumption Catholic School in Perth Amboy NJ that currently is the largest elementary Ukrainian Catholic School in America. Over the years, thousands of students have called the school their second home and with their parents, created many positive memories. Among the many gratifying moments is when alumni return to register their own children to give them the Assumption Catholic experience.
On September 6, 2017 for the 54th time the ACS welcomed back returning and many new students. Students were welcomed by their teachers and a new principal Mrs. Lissette Shumny, who started her first year as ACS principal. An energy of excitement and anticipation buzzed on the school grounds as the students, fresh-faced in their crisp uniforms reunited with friends and shook off any lingering first-day jitters. ACS IS SO proud and excited to launch the 2017-2018 school year with our incredibly talented and dedicated teaching staff and ongoing support and partnership of Assumption parish. ACS is a small parochial school administered by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Metuchen, the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia and the Ukrainian Catholic Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. AdvancEd accredited, the school provides a Christ-centered, Catholic environment to a diverse population of pre-kindergarten (age 4) through 8thgrade students. Before Care and After Care are available.
Registration is ongoing throughout the school year.
