Lord God, let your blessing come upon us as we light the candles of this Advent wreath. May the wreath and its light be a sign of Christ’s promise to bring us salvation. May he come quickly and not delay. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
The New Playground is Finished!
Our preschool students enjoy being the first to enjoy our new playground! Built especially for children six and under, the playground will provide countless hours of exercise and play.
Respect, Responsibility and Success
Saint Ambrose School is a small school with a big heart. The faith-based education offers a nurturing and challenging academic environment for children in kindergarten through eighth grades. The diverse student body is represented by children from five of the seven continents. Students are welcomed from different ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. The shared vision of the Catholic faith promotes unity and appreciation for each person’s unique gifts, encouraging understanding and cooperation within the student body. Weekly Mass, daily prayers, and a shared culture of faith build a true community.
Service to Others
St. Ambrose teaches service as a natural part of school life. The Student Council takes leadership in organizing and carrying out service projects such as a Thanksgiving food drive, Christmas toy collection, a penny drive for a school in Haiti, preparation of care packages for military men and women in Afghanistan and Iraq, and a baby shower for young mothers in need. These projects instill in the students a sense of mission and concern for others. For six years, the Crochet USA Club has met weekly and crocheted over 40 blankets for wounded soldiers.
Older students are paired with a “buddy” in a younger class and participate in activities with them. Through these activities, students learn to serve as an active member of the community, and thus grow in faith and maturity. Our graduates continue this spirit of service in high school and college.
St. Ambrose provided me with not only a solid academic base but it also gave me a strong foundation in my faith. This academic base led to greater opportunities in high school and beyond while my faith gave me confidence and purpose in Jesus Christ. The teachers and staff take an vested interest in the development of the entire student– mind, body, and soul. They’re more like second parents.

A DAY IN THE LIFE
Our school day begins as the students line up by class outside the school for prayer and the pledge of allegiance. Next, students proceed to their classrooms and organize their materials for the day. A middle school student welcomes the students to a new day by reading a selection from a children’s lectionary, and leading the school in prayer. (read more)
