St. Ambrose College, Usiefrun (originally known as St. Ambrose Grammar School, Usiefrun) is a Catholic Mission School owned by the Catholic Diocese of Warri founded in the year 1963, with Rev Fr. F.A Flanagan (late) as her first Principal. Situated in Usiefrun Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State, this citadel of learning was originally established with the primary aim of undertaking in the educational, religious and social formation and growth of the male child. It started out as a full-time boarding school, with boys admitted from different parts of the country. Its motto is Faith and Success. With discipline and dedicated hardwork on the part of the Students and School, the first set admitted Students performed very well in the Senior School Certificate Examination in their fifth year (present SS 2) by the Ministry of Education in the then Mid-West Region. However, in 1970, the Federal Government took over all Mission Schools and St. Ambrose College was also affected by this take-over. This resulted in a number of changes; first, the renaming of the School as Ogbavweni Grammar School, Usiefrun, and also the shift from an all-boys boarding school to a mixed day school. As time went by, agitation for the return of Mission Schools to their original owners started, and on April 8th, 2010 the State Executive Council (EXCO) reached a decision to transfer 40 out of 52 Schools back to their mission owners. Officially, the School was handed back to the Catholic Mission on October 27th, 2011.
