Faculty & Staff

Classical Studies of Indianapolis has a talented and dedicated staff of teachers and administrators. You can meet them below, and if you have questions or inquiries, please contact our program director.

Kate Ambrose
Program Director
Passionate about classical Christian education, Kate has taught history to CSIndy students for the past 5 years. From her experience as Lower Grammar Team Lead, then Head of School, and now Program Director she has seen the importance of being sensitive to those things that we, as parents, want for our children’s education, and the value of creating a culture of leadership that supports recruiting and retaining creative teachers who can truly connect with students. To her, classical education is a potent way to integrate the different disciplines, so her students can gain a healthier worldview from a Christian perspective and the tools necessary to foster a life-long love of learning.

Her own love affair with living history began at age 11 when she began working as a youth volunteer and then as an historical interpreter at Conner Prairie. She spent nine years making the year 1836 in Indiana’s history come alive for children and families. She studied social work at BSU & IUPUI and began her career in real estate in 2006 where she enjoys helping families find homes they love. Each year Kate volunteers to lead worship and Christian teaching for children at Camp Outreach – Indianapolis, which is a ministry dedicated to caring for the poor in an inner city neighborhood.

Married to Dan since 2006, they make their home in the Trader’s Point area where they raise their 3 lively daughters, who have only known the joy and benefits of being classically home schooled.
