At Assumption, we are committed to exploring with great gusto the relationship between faith and reason. By participating in this 2,000-year-old-tradition, today’s students join generations of scientists, artists, writers, and philosophers who have engaged in a search for truth across disciplines.
We believe the Catholic intellectual tradition to be especially relevant and useful for our times, and encourage the growth of mind, body and spirit in an inclusive, open climate where all faith traditions have a voice.
