Custom Ironwork at The Ambrose School
In the 1990’s, a group of area parents surveyed the educational landscape and decided they wanted to create an education for their children that was unwaiveringly Christian and uniquely effective at teaching children to think. Rockbridge Academy opened its doors in 1995 as a classical Christian school located in the historic Baltimore-Annapolis-Washington, D.C., triangle.
