Mission & Philosophy

Mission Statement

St. Ambrose Catholic School (SAS) and Parish are called together as a community to nurture the spiritual formation, academic excellence, physical, emotional, and social growth of all students. The uniqueness of each student is embraced in a safe, loving, caring environment. Our students are prepared to meet and respond to the opportunities and challenges of the future as responsible, Christian members of society.

Educational Philosophy

St. Ambrose Catholic School is part of the total Catholic Community of St. Ambrose Catholic Church. The purpose of SAS is to make known the love of God the Father revealed through the Son, Jesus.  This is achieved through the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social and physical development of the student. At St. Ambrose Catholic School, we strive to develop the intellectual potential of each student according to his/her ability. We want our students to come to know what it means to be a Catholic Christian and to grow in the ability to respond to the demands asked of them. Self-discipline is taught as the means to obtain the high standard of moral integrity we set for our students. Everything that is done at SAS is meant to aid in the development of the total person of each student.

While personal growth is of the utmost importance, we want our students to become aware of the needs of others, to take his/her responsibility in serving others and in helping to build Christian Community. Indeed, our students are called to truly be a witness of Christ.
