Our Philosophy

We at St. Augustine Academy, through our belief in Christ like witness and values, provide for each student's participation in a total Christian experience within a community bound together in loving service to one another.  

We exist to serve God and neighbor by encompassing the spiritual, intellectual and social development of each child by affirming the three-fold purpose of Catholic education:  to teach doctrine, to develop community, and to serve.  

By educating the child, we stress that the origin and destiny of every individual is God.  By building community, we develop in the student a commitment to society and to the social skills and virtues needed to achieve. By serving God and man, we establish in our students an awareness of human needs, so that they may respond to their obligation of Christian service.  

These principles are uniquely interpreted in the spirit of St. Augustine—to manifest love of the individual person as Christ proclaimed in His gospel of charity.  

Embracing the challenge of growth, we are called to instill values, morals, responsibility and respect for self, and service to others. We teach our students for the world today, while preparing them for the world of tomorrow.
