Message from the Principal


It is a pleasure to welcome you to St. Ambrose Academy.

Our school offers a faith centered education for students in Preschool through Grade Five.  We strive to have each student develop spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially within a loving, diverse Christian environment.  This is our mission.

We have a dedicated, loving, caring and supportive faculty and staff who assist our students in maximizing their potential. All of our teachers are New York State certificated. Our staff also includes resource teachers, classroom aides and a part-time nurse. We work closely with our students in order to provide a quality education tailored to the individual needs of every student.  Our students consistently show improvement in all areas of academics.

Our curriculum follows New York State Common Core Standards, as well as Diocesan goals for teaching the Catholic Faith.  Our theme for this year is “Working Together Giving Glory to God”.

We believe in a strong connection between school and home. I send home weekly news briefs to keep families informed on school-wide information.  Our teachers send home weekly folders showing student progress.  We strive to keep open lines of communication.

May God bless you and your families,

Mrs. Jackie Senecal
