Mr. Don Ayers won an energy grant from PIOGA for $470.75.   PIOGA is Pennsylvania Independent Oil and Gas Association who represents over 950 members, including oil and natural gas producers, drilling contractors, service companies, manufacturers, distributors, professional firms and consultants, royalty owners, and other individuals with an interest in Pennsylvania’s oil and gas industry.

The grant money will be used for the Ambridge Junior High 7th & 8th grade honors science students 2nd annual S.T.E.M. day for the 3rd grade classes at Economy Elementary in spring of 2015.  The students will use the kit to light a miniature bulb, sound a buzzer, rotate a fan with one simple device! This photocell testing unit can convert light energy into electric energy to make these experiments easy for students. The unit can also keep students busy applying an experiment such as comparison between a clear day and a cloudy day; observing the variation in the angle at which the sunlight falls on the cell; covering the cell with their hand and applying the reflected sunlight to the cell; or testing the unit’s ability by using an incandescent lamp or a fluorescent lamp.

FREE SEMINAR...7:00pm on January 29, 2015 at the Ambridge Area High School auditorium


"Teaching Students How to be Proactive in the Recruiting Process, and Setting a Gameplan for Success!"


“Guiding the College-Bound Athlete” will provide information and topics for every student-athlete in middle and high school and their parents to educate and prepare them for opportunities and careers after graduation.


Many student-athletes who aspire to play at the college level are not familiar with the ins and outs of academic requirements and eligibility as they need to be in order to pursue their goals. “Guiding the College-Bound Athlete,” is a program designed by Rick Wire, president of Dynamite Sports, a Pennsylvania-based corporation, and the father of 9-year NFL veteran Coy Wire.


This seminar will provide families with information about the availability of athletic scholarships and the realities of the college recruiting process.

The Ambridge Area Junior High School is fundraising for a second mosaic mural! We are lucky and excited to have artist Laura Jean McLaughlin join us once again to create a mural based on the history of our communities.  Your student will enjoy learning about the rich history of the areas that make up our district.  Then, they will sketch designs inspired by the lesson.   We will design a mural layout on cement board and paint it in to color code it.  Next, the hard work of cutting tile and putting together the mural begins. The final step is to grout the mural.  Our wonderful maintenance team puts the mural on the wall with tap-con screws and TA-DA the whole school community gets to enjoy a powerful large scale work of art!

Last year’s Mural is 9 ½ ‘X 12’ large and based on school culture. The students made the entire artwork from the ground up!  They were so proud of themselves when they saw the final product and so was everyone else in the school and community who got to experience the artwork.  Great things happen when our collective creativity is pulled together!
