Testing in some academic areas may be held for a new incoming student in Grades 3-8.

All new students will be given a trial period to prove himself/herself both socially and academically. If during this trial period there are any issues, a student may be asked to withdraw his/her attendance at St. Ambrose Catholic School. Conditional admission may be recommended, if appropriate, and conditions may be suggested. For example, students who are not performing at grade level but whose parents request placement with chronological age classmates must provide a full-time aid at the parents’ expense.

Moreover, all financial responsibilities to previous parish schools must be satisfied before admission is considered at St. Ambrose Catholic School.

Ordinarily, St. Ambrose Catholic School does not accept transfers into or returning to St. Ambrose during the school year unless the transfer is due to a move into the area by a parish family.
