It's good for humanities-related subjects, but if you're interested in STEM you're kind of screwed. Also prepare to face discrimination if you're not Catholic.
I was a 2017 graduate of St. Ambrose Academy. To this day, I look back fondly at the human and educational development I received at this school. Here, I received the critical thinking skills to excel at the University level. I have since noticed that I had an advantage when compared to my peers especially in the liberal arts. St. Ambrose forms and develops the Catholic men and women who will lead the next generation. I am proud to support this school!
Top notch school - truly Catholic; classical education; excellent teachers & administrators. Highly recommend this school.
We have 3 children enrolled at St. Ambrose for the clear education/formation gifts this school imparts to young people: helping them grow in a love for learning, critical thinking, knowledge, and wisdom. We're choosing a school that exceptionally prepares kids to thrive in life. We're a young school (18 years!), but early graduates are already earning STEM PhDs, becoming lawyers and doctors, teachers and missionaries, and entering the military or religious life. Our small classes ensure individualized attention while our faculty of 13 (4 with PhDs, 7 with master's) are experts in their fields and sincere witnesses of the faith. Our broad and winning program of extracurriculars support and nourish a breadth of interests and life skills. Best of all, this community fosters high standards, responsibility, acceptance, and ownership - all combining to equip our kids to rise to any challenge and to create a truly human society based on our needs for God, love in truth, mercy, and justice.
I have had two children graduate from St. Ambrose Academy, and I can not say enough great things about the faculty. I love that the staff held a high bar for my children but also gave them the support they needed to reach that high bar. My children left St. Ambrose Academy with great academic skills and as a result our oldest graduated summa cum laude from Benedictine College and our second is achieving success in the Electrical Engineering program at UW Madison. I highly recommend this fantastic school!
St. Ambrose Academy is a new school with great dreams. They prepare students for the challenges of the "real world". The students are sent out with excellent knowledge from challenging classes and a firm faith. St. Ambrose Academy is a quality school and I would recommend this school to anyone who wanted a head start on college life and was prepared to be challenged to achieve excellence.
This school is definitely academically challenging, but the small class sizes and group discussions in class are really helpful. We are outgrowing our facilities, though, so its really cozy right now.
The atmosphere is tuff because it is a college prep school but very safe and drugs, alcohol and gangs are non existent.
The school helped me see my strong points and thats why i chose to go into finance
