St. Ambrose combines a joyful Catholic formation with classical methods to equip students to become clear thinkers and self-learners, responsible and hard-working citizens and leaders, always eager to act on God's voice in their lives.

Every student deserves such an education, and they should not be denied it for a financial reason. Annually, more than half of the student body requires tuition assistance averaging more than $5,000 off advertised tuition of just over $8,000. Clearly, our young school depends on the generosity of the community to be strong for all families - providing the best curriculum and the best faculty for the best results.

A Big Match

Recently we were given an unprecedented matching challenge to boost the foundation of annual large-gift support. For every 4 commitments to sponsor a full student tuition of $8,285 - a generous benefactor will sponsor each 5th student!

We have received at least 14 commitments since November - which means three additional matching sponsorships are already secured!! Our goal is to reach 20 sponsored students by the end of 2020. Let's reach high for our students and help our matching donor sponsor 5 students alone!!

Every St. Ambrose family contributes their best to choose this education, but many cannot afford the cost of private education. These are real students who need real help to have this exceptional education and to be equipped as Christian leaders.

Consider Sponsoring a Student!

Are you able to sponsor one (or more) students and their hard-working family? We encourage initial promises of at least 2-3 years and can happily pair you with your student throughout his or her SAA career or as the need continues.*

You may commit tonight by making a one-time payment or recurring monthly schedule that totals $8,285 per year - or please contact Development Director Joseph Draves at with questions.

If this matching opportunity is beyond your financial reach, we especially ask you to PRAY for a resounding success in reaching our goal, which will solidify ongoing funding for roughly half of our tuition assistance fund each year.

*We will pair you with and facilitate communications from your student(s) each year. Some sponsors have kept in touch with student(s) long after graduation, building a lifelong friendship!
