The tuition at Assumption Academy is very affordable, even for large families. It is because of this that the Academy relies on various sources for its funding. Some of it comes from very generous benefactors as charitable contributions.
The parents and students are very active in numerous events to help raise money, so we greatly appreciate all of the generosity of donors, as well as the hard of work parents and students.
Assumption Academy (K-12) has grown dramatically in the past 5 years. It opened its doors for the 2010/2011 school year with 30 students. Now we are well over 150 students, and we anticipate growth as far as the eye can see. The fruits are obvious, and the need is obvious too!
As has been a longer term plan, the fall of 2017 will see Assumption will be divided into two school buildings as we further integrate the Dominican program for our students. This progress has been a great blessing for our already over-filled classrooms! Soon we hope to have a building for the boys now that the final touches for the girls' school are being put into place.
Without God's sending the gift of your generosity - prayers and otherwise - this would not be possible, With gratitude we thank you all for these blessings and ask that you continue these efforts for the benefit of our students!
Every little bit helps!
The Programs below Help Assumption Academy Tremendously! Thank You for your support!
The Kroger program works by your association of your Kroger rewards card to Assumption Academy. This program does not affect the points you earn through Kroger in any way. It takes about 15 minutes of your time to setup the card association, but after that Assumption Academy earns money through your purchases at Kroger, and it's a HUGE benefit to our Academy. Please see below for details.
Your existing Kroger Plus Card number must be associated with the school. After that, simply scan your Kroger Plus card at the register, or gas pump EVERY time you make a purchase, just as you normally do, so that all of your purchases are calculated towards the school's award amount. As you can see, participation is easier under the new program!
Be assured that participation in this program does not affect the points you earn through Kroger in any way.
Getting your Kroger Plus Card number associated with the school can be completed by following these simple steps:
1. go to www.krogercommunityrewards.com 2. Click on "Create An Account" in the top right corner (have your Kroger Plus Card number or alternate ID handy) 3. Verify your new login by clicking on the link in the email they will send you 4. Login using your new login account 5. Go into "My Account" then "Community Rewards" and click "Edit" 6. Enter "Assumption" into the search box and click search 7. Select Assumption Academy, Walton, KY 8. Make sure you click SAVE CHANGES
If you do not have a Kroger Plus Card, one can be provided for you. Even if you don't shop at Kroger that often, your participation is strongly encouraged. Every dollar spent is calculated towards the school's award amount so even if it's only a small purchase, many small purchases can add up very quickly. Every little bit helps!
Things to remember: * Scan your Kroger Plus Card EVERY time you make a purchase or pump gas * Anyone can participate at any Kroger, anywhere in the country! * Please ask family & friends to register their Kroger Plus Card to be counted towards the school.
The Shop With Scrips program works by your purchasing credits for merchants that you patronize. So if you already buy items on sites Amazon.com, Marathon, or some of your favorite restaurants, you can buy cards up front. When you use those cards the Academy receives a percentage of the purchase total. Just as with the Kroger program, it greatly benefits the Academy for just a little bit of effort. Please see below for details.

Usually launching in early spring, students raise money with flyers mailed by post, doing door to door, and selling candy bars. In April or early May, students run around a track for one hour, and enjoy a lunch for their hard work afterwards. In the 2016 Jogathon, students raised almost 50,000 in donations for their school!
Assumption Festival & Sweepstakes
The Assumption Festival benefits both the church and the school in more ways than just finances. Over 100 students and parishioners gather together in planning and putting on this event that takes place every September. The largest fundraiser for us, folks from all over Kentucky and surrounding states come to participate in games and entertainment, and enjoy our many vendors, food, and attractions. Assumption raised over 100,000 in 2016 - and also sealed yet more the friendship and sense of Catholic community that is so important to our goal in the salvation of souls.
