Our Philosophy

 Assumption School is a Catholic  educational institution that strives to provide a superior  education for academically qualified youth.
 Every effort will be made to ensure that no student is denied an education at Assumption due to lack of financial means.

    Our primary objective is two-fold: (1) The formation of the whole person- this means that in addition to academic formation, students will be challenged to grow spiritually, morally, psychologically, socially, physically and emotionally. Assumption students will develop leadership skills, by being challenged to grow in areas of responsibility, integrity, initiative and concern for others. (2) Service to the Marshallese community- this means students will share skills, talents, and values, developed at Assumption to affirm, support and promote Marshallese culture. We at Assumption School utilize the western educational system to help our students understand and appreciate the Marshallese culture.

    Through growth in these areas we seek to form students who will use their training and skills in service of social justice. By doing so, Assumption students are capable of continuing Christ's mission in the Marshall Islands and throughout the world.
    Finally, Assumption School affirms the role of parents as primary educators of their children. Assumption will assist parents in understanding and fulfilling this role by encouraging parents to support the school with their time and talents. Parents are partners in the governance of Assumption School.
    At Assumption, our motto is "Loving God by serving others."

Our History

Assumption School, located in Majuro, the capital of the Marshall Islands, was established as an elementary school by Rev. Leonard Hacker, S.J. in 1954. Although the Catholic population in the Marshall Islands is under 10%, this Catholic elementary school gained a reputation for offering the best education in Majuro attracting students from most other denominations. When Father Hacker decided to build a larger church in 1971, parents approached him and asked him to start a high school as there was no comparable high school for their children to continue their education. Father Hacker delayed the building of the new church, and started Assumption High School in 1972.
