Local

We’re here to benefit our community. Ascend Business Services is a member of The Atrisco Companies family, with roots here in New Mexico dating back to the 17th Century. We are a community-based organization in the truest sense.

Aligned Interests

Ascend Business Services and The Atrisco Companies pursue improved educational outcomes as a mission. Our interests are aligned with the charter school movement. We provide services that mitigate risks and scale growth for charter schools.

Cost-Effective

We provide a unique non-profit social enterprise model which, through our own operational efficiency, result in cost savings to your charter school.

What We Do

We are experts in our field, but that’s just the beginning.

The Atrisco Companies (comprised of seven entities) were built on the idea that a solid back office, common to multiple businesses, allowed those non-profit enterprises to flourish. The founders of the non-profits could be optimally focused on their passion, which was the programmatic effort and not necessarily the back office work.

The Atrisco Companies
The Atrisco Companies

Ascend Business Services is an entity under The Atrisco Companies. The Atrisco Companies evolved from the historic Atrisco Land Grant, one of the most storied Spanish land grants common to our southwestern states. This 17th Century land grant system established a settlement and economic development in the New World, and early settlers of New Mexico gained their livelihoods from the land. Today, the Atrisco Companies continue the rich traditions of our ancestors by providing community-based business services in all of its entities. Atrisco Companies have bridged its past with its future. To learn more about the Atrisco Companies go to www.atriscocompanies.com.

We handle the back-office so that you can focus on the classroom.
