Welcome to The Ambrose School

Our mission: To nurture students’ appreciation of truth, goodness, and beauty as they strive for excellence, while guiding them to live purposefully in the service of God and man. As a preK – 12 classical Christian school, we are quite different from other schools. We strongly encourage you to investigate the classical Christian difference for yourself and see the impact our style of education can have on your child for the rest of his or her life. 

The goal of an Ambrose education is formation, not merely information. We seek to work in harmony with the family, helping prepare young people to become life-long learners and to glorify God more fully. Schedule a visit today to see if our school is a good fit for your family. We would love to meet you! 

We are Boise Valley’s regional classical Christian school, in operation since 1995 (formerly Foundations Academy). We are located near the intersection of Locust Grove and Chinden (6100 N. Locust Grove Rd) in Meridian, Idaho. Our student body of around 900 students represents over 80 different churches. We are an evangelical protestant Christian school, accredited by the Association of Classical Christian Schools. Visitors are welcome.   

Our school profile provides concise information on our SAT scores, etc. It is sent, along with our transcripts, as an informational tool for colleges regarding our school.

“Looking back, the school more than adequately prepared me for college and a career in nursing. I can say with confidence that The Ambrose School taught me HOW to think, not what to think, and this has prepared me for LIFE, not just a career.”
