In its first 12 years, St. Ambrose Academy has grown from 12 to 93 students in 2015-2016. The impact of the school has grown exponentially. Consider just a few students touching their families, parishes and communities through their love for the Catholic faith. Now, consider a growing community of well-educated, well-catechized students coming from the corners of the Diocese of Madison to serve their neighbors and then graduating to serve out in the world.
It is no surprise, then, that all the numbers on our income statement are growing. But, two important numbers to note are our contributions and grants (including gifts in kind) on the revenue end and tuition assistance and other grants on the expense end. Thanks to the unprecedented generosity of our benefactors, we are able to offer unprecedented tuition assistance to roughly one-third of our students.
We invite you to peruse our 2014-2015 Annual Report to get more detailed insight into our school’s financial condition and progress.
“Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith! And do not keep striving for what you are to eat and what you are to drink, and do not keep worrying. For it is the nations of the world that strive after all these things, and your Father knows that you need them. Instead, strive for his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.” ~ Gospel of St. Luke 12:27-31
