Mock Trial Team (Idaho State Bar Association)
One of the top programs in the state, our mock trial team took first place in the 2014 Idaho state championships, and has qualified for state each of the past eight years. See The Ambrose School wins Idaho State Mock Trial Championship!
Our team competed in the U.S. National High School Mock Trial Championship competition in Madison, WI, May 8-11, 2014. They represented Idaho for the first time in school history, scrimmaging against the first place team, Seattle Prep, and winning two out of four matches during the competition, losing only to the 7th & 8th place teams.

While billed as a civic or government educational program by the Bar Associations of most states, the mock trial program is much more. The program trains students in aspects of oratory, rhetoric, debate, and argument. For this reason, classical Christian schools often find Mock Trial an excellent compliment to their formal academic program.
