Mission Statement

Saint Augustine Catholic High School facilitates academic excellence in a Catholic environment where students are encouraged to grow in the Christian life through dialogue, proclamation, charitable outreach, worship, and celebration.


Philosophy

Saint Augustine Catholic High School believes in the dignity and worth of all individuals. We believe that with parents as primary educators, the school will develop the unique and valuable qualities our students possess and create thoughtful, constructive members of society who live and exemplify Catholic values.


School Values

W: Worth and Dignity of all.  Our community acknowledges the dignity of each individual by celebrating each person as a valued expression of God’s love.  Recognizing that each student is worthy in the eyes of God, it is an act of love to model respect and excellence in life and in our interactions with others.  Students commit themselves to the on-going challenges of reaching their personal potential with dignity; they apply their God-given talents and gifts within the SACHS and global communities.

O: Opportunity for Success We develop opportunities for success by using a holistic approach that addresses moral values, healthy life choices, academic achievement, and character development.  Ultimately our success will be measured by the personal, spiritual, and professional achievements of our students.

L:  Love, Know, and Serve God. In our interaction with each other and our students, we strive to emulate love for God. Our curriculum, especially theology, provides every opportunity for students to enhance and deepen their knowledge of the Catholic faith. Through daily prayer, retreats, and weekly mass, students express their love of God.

V: Victory pursued with Honor. The Saint Augustine community demonstrates integrity in athletics, fine arts, and other competitive endeavors.  Saint Augustine teams and clubs strive to act in accordance with the Catholic mission of the school in all competitions.

E: Excellence in Academics. As a learning community, we seek to instill the attainment of knowledge and the discovery of truth.  Through facilitation and modeling in an atmosphere of respect, the students are challenged to develop life-long learning habits through study, reflection, creativity, and commitment.  St. Augustine graduates are prepared to meet the challenges of college ready to make a contribution to the world.

S: Solidarity and Service to Others. The Saint Augustine community provides learning experiences to prepare and engage students in social justice.  Students are called to walk in solidarity with the poor and outcast of our society. Following in the steps of Jesus, and responding to their Baptismal call, students engage in works of mercy and social action through service projects, service trips, and advocacy campaigns.
