St. Ambrose Academy Reading Institute: From Dream to Reality

Kellie Raddell, Apostolate for Persons with Disabilities; Deb Krebs, SAARI director; Michael Lancaster, Superintendent of the Office of Catholic Schools; and Grant Emmel, St. Ambrose board director.

At the 10th Annual Benefit Dinner on December 10, 2016, Development Director Joe Draves shared the great news that St. Ambrose would partner with the Apostolate for Persons with Disabilities and the Diocese of Madison to form the St. Ambrose Academy Reading Institute (SAARI). That partnership has solidified, and St. Ambrose parent and SAARI director Deb Krebs’ research to address dyslexia in her own family will now benefit children all over the Diocese of Madison. Already, Deb and her tutors, who are all trained in the Barton System for Reading and Spelling, are working one-on-one three hours per week with students in two area Catholic grade schools. St. Ambrose is pleased to offer real assistance to the 20% of students who struggle with dyslexia.
