Ambrose Auxilium

Do you want to build your school more quickly by tapping into the work of those who have gone before? Have you read the books and blogs, and are ready for hands-on experience? The Ambrose School and the ACCS are partnering to help schools quickly grow and improve, whether they are just starting up or want to build on their current foundation. We believe in the benefits of connections with other believers passionate about educating children for Christ.

Utilizing Ambrose’s established teachers, administrators, and curriculum — and learning from both successes and failures — you can walk the halls, offices, and classrooms to see first hand the major and minor systems necessary to build and run a successful and excellent school.

Who is this for? Startups or operating schools that would like visional or operational input.

What will I get? One-on-one answers to questions, hands-on solutions, and support networks with CCE leaders and teachers from around the country.

What will I go home with? New ideas and real-world support from an established and growing school, and a faster path forward to meeting the needs in your community.

We will offer both a Collaborative Model Track (i.e., homeschool / classroom hybrid) and a Traditional School Track.  Ambrose also offers an Auxilium in the spring. Dates will be announced soon!

Fantastic. I would come again [and] bring more leaders. This was more practical than any conference I’ve been to in 15 years. Thank you for all of your time!

I have seen the beauty of Classical Christian ed through the kid’s love for learning! This was so well done. Thank you so much for all the time and energy you have selflessly put into this!!

In 3.5 years of preparation, I learned more in these two days than in any book or conference.

I learned the importance of Godly culture in the classroom and within the school is a must. Wonderful event!

Find real-world support.
Join educators and administrators from around the country.
Observe classes.
Meet with Ambrose and ACCS staff and leaders.
