Welcome to Lefferts Gardens 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.
