The faculty of St. Ambrose School believes that the purpose of a Catholic School education is to develop in our children the desire to discover new ideals and to live productively within our society. To live productively in the society children must develop a sense of values to guide them in their future years. Only through a diversified education will children realize their full potential. There must be a relationship between that which we teach and that which we are, thus enabling the students to meet with confidence the challenges and responsibilities encountered in total community living. One of these challenges is for the students to become aware that they were created for a purpose in order to give meaning to their lives. Through creative thinking, and acceptance of responsibility and alert, active and articulate leadership, teacher and student become conscious of their call to live the Gospel values of message, community and service.


The mission of St. Ambrose School is to enable our children to grow in knowledge and love of learning within a faith-based community that fosters spiritual and moral development as well. Our standard of excellence in education is designed to inspire every child to reach their full academic potential in a safe, stimulating and nurturing environment.St. Ambrose academics, consistent with Catholic School standards, are taught by an experienced and accredited faculty, always guided by the Master Teacher, our Lord, Jesus Christ. In addition, St. Ambrose provides a full range of physical and athletic opportunities, fine and performing arts instruction, state-of-the-art technological facilities and exciting extracurricular activities.Our ultimate goal is to render students whose solid foundation of spiritual, social, and academic experiences will enable them to continue toward a life of responsible, moral and joyful Catholic adulthood.

St. Ambrose School strives to open its doors to as many children who seek an education with us. The school reserves the right to determine maximum class size in order to accommodate the many families that seek a quality education at our school.Priority of admissions and enrollment go in this order: 1) Students already attending the school, 2) New families that wish to register in this school and are currently active members of the parish, 3) Families that wish to register students as active parishioners, 4) Parents of students who come from another Catholic school, and 5) Final priority goes to transfers from public school systems.
