Elementary Education Program
Our Elementary Education Program, which begins in Kindergarten and concludes with the 4th and 5th grade Bridge Program, is a period of exciting and accelerated development and learning for your child.
Building upon the first few foundational blocks established in Littlest Angels, Elementary Education Program nurtures independent thinking through academic inquiry, embracing the uniqueness of self and others, collaboration with peers, introduction of Christian values rooted in Catholic tradition, and work habits.
Working daily with engaged classmates and caring teachers who intimately know their budding strengths and potential (and temporary) limitations, your student is quickly and confidently adding blocks and blocks – in English Language Arts, in Mathematics, in Social Studies, in Technology, and in so much more – to their growing academic foundation, even as they are learning new and unexpected things about themselves every day.
In addition to equipping your son or daughter to be successful in the classroom, we also provide Elementary Education Program students with unique service opportunities that enable them to apply their Christian values for the betterment of those in need throughout our local and global communities.
The Elementary School years really are an exciting time for our students and we feel very fortunate to play such a significant role in your child’s growth as a student, person, and Christian.
As they walk-up yet another flight of stairs to High School Prep, the final stage of their learning experience at Saint Ambrose School, they are: continuing to build and apply academic skills in English Language Arts and Mathematics; discovering their innate talents and abilities; growing in personal self-confidence; seeking to understand their own role in the Catholic Church; thinking more critically about questions inside and outside the classroom, and developing the individual study habits and learning behaviors necessary to succeed in 5th through 8th Grade.
