Through our educational mission, we proclaim, witness, and spread the Word of God.
We accomplish our educational mission while providing our students with the opportunity to grow in the faith to which they were initiated at the time of their Baptism.

St. Ambrose is an excellent school. My children have thrived while attending. They both have a very strong sense of self and pride about their school. I highly recommend St. Ambrose.
