What Our Students and Educators Say

Ascend inspired me to set goals on things I thought were impossible for me. I raised my GPA 0.6 points- from a 3.4 to a 4.0.

Ascend was easy to use. My son was motivated to do well. I was worried about his grades and his future, and now I know he’s going to college.
