Mission Statement

Mission Statement

Assumption College for Sisters exists primarily to educate women called to a life of consecration to God and of service in the Roman Catholic Church.


Students at deskIt provides a value-centered, two-year program in theology and the liberal arts. The College welcomes women religious of any racial or ethnic background. In addition, any woman who is seriously discerning religious life and is recommended by a vocation director or spiritual director may also enroll, though she is not yet part of a religious community or a formal formation program.


Sponsored by the Sisters of Christian Charity, an international religious congregation, the College has a character animated by the spirit of Jesus Christ, rooted in its Catholic identity, and committed to sound academic development. The intercommunity, international, multicultural dimensions at ACS generate a global spirit of community among faculty and students. Assumption values reverence for the dignity of each person and a commitment to integrity, peace, justice, and service. This positive and inclusive atmosphere helps religious build a firm foundation in truth and charity.


In recent years, ACS has welcomed an increasing number of women religious from Africa and Vietnam as full-time, resident students. Although the Sisters of Christian Charity had been accustomed to sponsoring a few international students periodically since 1968, the recent increase in students from developing nations represents a new direction in the College’s mission of educating women religious.


Assumption College for Sisters welcomes lay persons to earn credits in theology and philosophy courses and to pursue the Certificate in Theological Studies. They are invited to audit any course and to attend workshops. Their presence is mutually beneficial to all members of the College community. By opening its doors to them, ACS deepens its commitment to the education of those who serve the Church through ministry.
