Prospective Family


Dear Parents:

I am fortunate to have been part of this community since the St. Ambrose of Woodbury school opened its doors in the year 2000, and I feel blessed by the opportunity to lead our school. I am excited to continue our great tradition of faith development, academic excellence and service to others, and believe I am called to work to continue to improve our outstanding programs.

The Saint Ambrose of Woodbury community’s biggest asset is our people. We have a professional staff whose love of sharing faith and supporting children makes me grateful each day. We have students who grow each year in their knowledge and understanding of the world, as well as in their awareness of the gifts God has given them. We see our students making connections about how that awareness informs their choices as people of faith. We have parents and parishioners whose support gives a solid foundation for all that we do at school. I am thankful for all of the amazing people that make our community strong.

"What I love most about Saint Ambrose is hard to describe. It is the way in which our children learn ethics and morals. It is foundational to all they do and it is the Saint Ambrose way. I can tell instantly when I meet a group of children which ones are from Saint Ambrose. They look you in the eye, show respect always, and are able to communicate at an elevated level."
