Saint Augustine School recognizes and respects the uniqueness of each child. Established in 1891,the school’s primary mission is to foster a love of learning in each student. Our curriculum skillfully weaves Catholic, artistic and practical disciplines into every day lessons.
Saint Augustine School is a Catholic Institution committed to the Christian Education of youth. We strive to give our students, through example as well as teaching, an education which is spiritual, moral, scholastic, emotional and physical in an effort to educate the whole person.
With this in mind, we try to recognize the individual uniqueness of each child, the worth of their talents, by challenging each one in the light of human dignity. An important aspect of this recognition of each child’s individuality is our commitment to the principles and theory of learning espoused by Howard Gardner. We believe and practice the basic concepts of the theory of Multiple Intelligences. The more ways a person learns something, the more he or she really learns it, remembers it, understands it, and it becomes a part of his or her being.
We also endeavor to teach our students the sound democratic principles upon which our country was founded, to have them assume responsibility for their actions; to help them meet the crises of a secularized world; and to direct their lives towards their proper destiny based upon Christian values and principles to which they have been exposed.
