School Notes

  • Established in 1906 with a goal of providing local children with an outstanding parochial school education, St. Ambrose has remained committed to that goal for over a century. Even as our sphere of students has expanded to include children from all over the Metro area, we have maintained our dedication to providing the best education experience in accordance with our Christian values for students ages 3 through 8th grade. We pride ourselves on combining the best new methods with the best of tradition to create a truly unique environment that prepares our students to be future leaders.
  • Every child who attends St. Ambrose Catholic elementary school will receive an education designed to grow them personally, spiritually and academically. To prepare students for the opportunities and challenges that await them, we foster creativity and divergent thinking and encourage the application of these important thinking skills to science, math and other core courses. Beyond traditional school subjects, we also prepare children to be examples of Christ in the global community by educating in a spirit of understanding, peace, and tolerance.
