St. Ambrose 5K and 1K Fun Run on April 5
Part of the proceeds from this year’s 5K will be used to establish the Ana-Maria Cordoba Scholarship fund. This fund will benefit students who exhibit the same spirit of service with which Ana-Maria graced our community. Because of this, Felipe Cordoba and his daughter, Cristina, will act as honorary chairs to the event. More information
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.
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)
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.

When we think back to the “good old days”, we dream of a time when everyone knew each other, and people truly cared about one another. That special spark is what makes our school so precious. In a school with 200 students, teachers have an opportunity to really get to know their students. Families develop bonds and a strong community is born!
