St. Ambrose Academy, established in 2003, is accredited by the National Association of Catholic & Independent Schools (NAPCIS). The school’s mission is to assist parents in the formation of their children by providing a classical education rooted in the Catholic faith. Aware that all truth has its origin and end in the person of Jesus Christ, our students study Catholic theology and college preparatory subjects through the teachings of the Magisterium and the primary works of civilization’s greatest thinkers. Offered regular access to the Sacraments and mentored by teachers who foster a deep love of Jesus Christ, students see and are led to imitate the virtues which joyfully compel a life lived in knowledge, love, and service of Christ and His Church.
