Our Mission

You are involved in a lifetime commitment. You have allowed Ashleys to be a part of this effort. The investment represented by your child and the “person” of that life cannot be measured by dollars or things.

Honesty, integrity, and hard work cannot be purchased, but must be lived before each child every day. Yes, one of the most profound investments for all of us is to send a legacy of honesty, integrity, and hard work, coupled with Godly knowledge, to a future place passed on to people we have not met by those we do not know.

Your child is a most precious investment.

Founded and directed by Raymond and Sharon Ashley, Ashleys Private School has been in operation in Cedar Hill, Texas since 1979. Serving Preschool (age 3) – 5th grade, the school continually strives for an environment of educational excellence where students are challenged to develop intellectually and physically through a comprehensive curriculum. Focusing on integrity, academics, discipline and esteem, Ashleys provides a value-based education as a foundation for your child’s future.

Ashleys Private School has a unique and successful combination of solid academics, a loving environment, and valuable character building lessons based on Christian values. The teachers and staff at Ashleys recognize the uniqueness of each student and strive to prepare each child to respond to the opportunities and challenges of the twenty-first century.

Focus on Academics

Students at Ashleys Private School experience a flexible curriculum with a strong emphasis on basic academic skills.

Reading begins in kindergarten using a phonics-based system. Ashleys students consistently achieve at or above national norms in reading, math, language arts and science as demonstrated by the Stanford Achievement Test.

Field trips can bring to life lessons on history, ecology, arts and sciences. Ashleys students participate in a variety of field trips which are coordinated with the curriculum and scheduled throughout the year.

Additionally, computer, physical education, music, Spanish and art classes are important parts of the curriculum.

Values Matter

A great education includes more than just academics – it also provides a frame of reference which enables students to make good choices for a lifetime. Character is not developed in a vacuum. Children develop good values when they are surrounded by caring adults – at home and at school – who demonstrate integrity and concern.

Children can best achieve their potential when they are safe, recognized and treated as individuals, and have teachers who love to teach. At Ashleys, our small class sizes make individualized attention possible, and our teachers make each classroom a special place.

Appearance and Attire (Dress, attitude and actions all serve as reference points on the road to individualism. Our goal is to maintain an environment that provides a maximum opportunity for learning.
