We completed another outstanding year of hard work and blessing. There were more academic and club successes than we can mention here. Collectively, our 11 graduates in the Class of 2017 received nearly $500,000 in college scholarships, having achieved a composite ACT score of 28 (compared to the WI average of 20.5).
We rejoice in all our graduates, who are committed to growing and serving the world with excellence, self-gift, and holiness!
Effective Catholic education is indispensable for producing lifelong faith and helping students reach higher achievement, because they want to maximize their self-gift. Given that our students academically perform top in the state and receive sizable college scholarships, our support of St. Ambrose Academy is one of the best investments we can make. Our graduates excel in post-secondary training and are empowered to sow Christ’s blessing in leadership positions where His Light is needed most.
As we begin the 2017-2018 school year, up to 40% of enrolled families need help to provide their children the advantages of a St. Ambrose education. We are so blessed to be able to partner with our benefactors to make this education possible for them. The Catholic education model is different than 40 years ago. We depend on talented lay teachers, which requires just and competitive wages. St. Ambrose needs YOU to make an annual investment to be a gold standard in education for our future.
In recent months, several families – concerned they’d have to leave St. Ambrose – indicated they need additional aid next year requiring an incremental $15,000- $20,000 from our tuition assistance fund. We hope you agree: they stay, and we’ll find them help! Like all SAA families, they’ll contribute in other ways to create school equity, and we work tirelessly to grow support.
Thank you for making your BEST one-time or recurring investment today – before school starts on September 5! – to help us form and send more gifted Guardians into the world.
It’s making the BEST difference of all!
