Student Admission Requirements (K-6)

IMG_1908A child must have reached the age of five years by the first day of school in the year in which he would be entering kindergarten; six years of age by the first day of school for entrance into the first grade.

If a child has successfully completed the previous school year and his schoolwork and behavior compare favorably to The Ambrose School’s standards, he will be placed in the grade for which he is applying. However, if there is evidence that the child may not be adequately prepared for the next sequential grade level, he may be required to repeat the previous grade.

The student should understand that his parents have delegated their authority to the school during the school day. Therefore, the child is subject to the instruction and discipline of the teacher and the Headmaster in their prescribed roles at The Ambrose School.

The Ambrose School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, or sex in the administration of its policies, admissions, financial aid, and other school-directed programs.

Parent Requirements

Parents should have a clear understanding of the biblical philosophy and purpose of The Ambrose School. This understanding includes a willingness to have their child exposed to the clear teaching of the school’s Statement of Faith in various and frequent ways within the school’s program.

Parents should have a clear understanding of our unique classical educational approach. Parents should carefully read the informational materials about the school. We also strongly encourage each parent to read the book by Douglas Wilson, “Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning,” as one of the best texts for explaining the kind of program we offer at The Ambrose School.

Parents are required to cooperate with all the written policies of The Ambrose School. This is especially important in the area of discipline and schoolwork standards, as well as active communication with the respective teachers and administration. In addition, parents are strongly encouraged to become active volunteers in other areas of the school.
