Families, please note that changes have been made to the Thanksgiving break schedule.

Schools will be closed from November 22 - 26th. 


Mr. Recy Dunn chose to close all Ascend schools for an additional two days that week in order to provide both staff and families with an opportunity for additional rest and restoration given how challenging the pandemic continues to weigh on all stakeholders.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please reach out to CALS Ops


Welcome to Canarsie Ascend Lower School

The mission of every Ascend school is to equip our students with the knowledge, confidence, and character to succeed in college and beyond.


By offering a rich liberal arts education in a supportive environment, we animate children’s natural sense of curiosity and prepare students to think on their own, thrive on their own, and engage the world as informed, responsible citizens.
