Assumption School represents the sacrifices, perseverance, and the great faith of the parishioners of Our Lady of Assumption Parish that was founded on April 20, 1884. Within the first ten years the parish dreamed of having its own grammar school. The dream was eventually brought to fulfillment in 1922 and Assumption School opened its doors to students in 1925.
At the time of the opening, the Bishop of the Diocese of Springfield invited the Sisters of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin to staff our new Assumption School. The sisters’ congregational mission is “To reveal the Father’s love through education”, and this charism continues to be the foundation of our school's mission.
For seventy five years, the sisters of this French Canadian congregation have carried on their mission by sharing their faith, culture, and language with the children of Assumption School.
Today, the legacy of learning continues with our dedicated teachers and parents. Students come from Millbury, the Blackstone Valley, Worcester, and many other surrounding towns. Come, be part of the legacy.
The community of Assumption School embraces the mission of the Catholic Faith by empowering faculty, staff, students and parents to live as disciples of Jesus through our words and our actions. We are committed to the ministries of worship, service, and justice.
Our ministry of worship embraces praying, celebrating the sacraments, modeling Christian behavior, and sharing the Good News.
Our ministry of service embraces helping each other daily, reaching out to those in need, and participating fully in the life of the Church.
Our ministry of justice embraces recognizing the dignity of all God’s people, establishing a peaceful environment, and empowering others to be the best that they can be.
