Graduation Requirements

SAA GradsSt. Ambrose Academy grants two types of diplomas: Standard and Classics. When students apply for colleges, the School Profile that accompanies student transcripts describes the requirements for both diplomas.  A Classics diploma is a worthy achievement that will strengthen a student’s college application.

Courses taken at other institutions will be included in the graduation requirement total if approved by the principal. Credits for school work completed at another school or homeschool may be granted by the principal with board approval.
