Core Education

What makes St. Ambrose so special?

Our students enjoy many of the amenities you expect to find at larger, public schools like a STEM lab and a robotics program, without sacrificing the personal attention that comes with smaller class sizes. In addition, our Inclusion and Challenge programs mean that St. Ambrose is uniquely able to offer a perfectly tailored elementary school education.

Core Values

Growing the Child. Growing the Talents. Growing the Faith.

These core values guide the elementary school education experience at St.  Ambrose as we prepare every student to be a global citizen and faithful Christian in the 21st Century.

The Penthouse Program

The mission of St. Ambrose School is to help every child reach their educational, social and spiritual potential. The Penthouse Program allows us to make this promise a reality for nearly every student. In addition to challenging our learners, this elementary school program fosters community awareness and lifelong learning skills.


For over 20 years, St. Ambrose has offered an Inclusion Program for students with mild to moderate learning disabilities and other health impairments. We employ a team approach in which learning consultants and teachers collaborate to meet the individual needs of the student.


The Challenge Program at St. Ambrose is designed to enrich the educational experience and curriculum for all students by including additional assessments and instruction that develops higher level thinking skills.

100 years of Educational Experience

Since 1906, St. Ambrose school has offered an exceptional education that has nurtured young minds and raised Future Leaders. Our low teacher-student ratio and our rigorous curriculum have built a culture around fostering creativity, exploring new ideas and preparing students for the future. Our teachers hold themselves to equally high standards, and they take pride in constantly updating their own learning through professional development. Our forward thinking approach is apparent throughout the school, from the cutting edge technology to the application of the most modern best practices in education.
