Mission

Education

“The specific mission that the Church entrusts to the Congregation is to bring everything together under Christ as head, by the work of education.”

Rule of life of the Religious of the Assumption no.76

Vision

Transformative Education

The mission of the Assumption is marked by transformative education. It is a gradual, personal and integral transformation, enabling each person to be themselves as fully as possible. This transformative process, which affects both the individual and the community, brings people to be active participants in the transformation of society. Its aim is the extension of the Kingdom of God in oneself and in others.

Marie Eugénie spoke of Christianising the intelligence through education. She wanted the pupils to learn about justice and social values so that they would be committed to transforming society.

In the early years of the congregation, the educational mission was expressed through the foundation of schools for girls. Over time different educational activities developed in response to the needs of the times and localities. Today there are both formal (schools) and informal educational initiatives in our Province.

The Asumcion School in Copenhagen was established in 1903 as an international French school, is oldest international school in Denmark. The school now has two sections: Danish and International (English).  There is no longer a community of Assumption Sisters in Denmark, but the school expresses its willingness to be part of the network of Assumptionist schools and to implement their ethos and educational vision. For both schools, particular emphasis is placed upon mutual understanding and respect among the many nationalities in the two schools. The aim of the International School is to provide a sound education, in English, in order to enable students to return to their own national system or continue at another international school. The education given is, above all, in the Christian spirit; great importance is placed upon the religious and moral development of the individual student. www.rygaards.com
