About Our School Program

Our school's academic program is rooted in the trivium, but extends to provide a great-books oriented, integrated approach in the secondary. We are committed to the cultivation of virtue-- both moral and intellectual-- in our students. Uniforms, our physical environment, and a developed house program help us to train students in community. We also have a full range of extracurricular offerings, including interscholastic sports, mock trial, orchestra, choir, and more.

About Our Community & Mission

The Ambrose School community is a closely knit group of evangelical families that are seeking Christ centered education. For us, this means that we are nurturing worshipers who know who they are, why they are here, and what they are called to do.

What We Are Known For In The Community

Our annual Traditional Christmas Concert draws over a thousand to attend each year. We have a nationally ranked Mock Trial team. And, we've had success in our sports programs, including a state championship in Basketball. We are most known for our academic excellence and our Christian worldview education.

About The Area We Serve

We serve the greater Treasure Valley which encompasses Boise, Eagle, Meridian, Star, Kuna, and some of Nampa. Our location is central to just about every part of Ada County. The metro has a population of about 400,000. Our families enjoy the outdoor opportunities in Idaho, and the pace of life in a mid-sized city with many 'big city' opportunities in the arts and recreation.
