Truth, Goodness, & Beauty

Our students are taught to evaluate a subject through the lenses of these transcendental elements;always seeking to discover the Divine nature in all things.

Wisdom & Virtue

Our Catholic, classical curriculum forms the mind and heart.

Our low student to teacher ratio means students are taught how to learn by teachers who are able to focus on each student as a person.

“My experience with The St. Austin School has been extraordinary. I transferred in the sixth grade, and was immediately welcomed by the kind-hearted students and faculty. At St. Austin, I found a love for classical education, and I have continued to take Latin in high school, where it remains one of my favorite classes. My love for learning is a direct result of the St. Austin teachers’ love for teaching. I also found that I was learning about my faith not just in religion class, but in every class. The Catholic faith was clearly at the center of each day at school. Because of St. Austin, I feel well prepared academically, socially, and spiritually to face what is ahead of me.” Lily Kinnison, Cor Jesu Academy ‘21 2017 St. Austin Alumni

“We formerly homeschooled all of our children and then tried our parish school. While we’re still homeschoolers at heart, St. Austin has been an answer to our prayers. The authentic Catholic identity plus the classical approach to education could not be a better match for us. The family-like atmosphere allows the faculty and administrators to truly get to know the students and parents. Small class sizes allow teachers to manage classroom behaviors with individualized virtue-driven methods. The faculty is made up of amazingly talented instructors who deeply love and care for the families who are a part of the school. One of our children’s teachers drove over thirty miles last summer to see one of our child’s baseball games. Icing on the cake is the amazing community between St. Austin families. Our children are challenged each day to become their best selves as Catholics and citizens. So often we observe aspects of our children’s growth that have us thanking God for St. Austin.” Seth and Maria Jansen

“The St. Austin School is an extension of our family life, partnering with us on our journey to raise happy, confident, inquisitive, and faith-filled children.  Because of the small class sizes, the teachers truly know each of our children: how they learn best, where they struggle, and how they can grow in virtue and confidence. Our children’s peers are like siblings and so too their families have become an extension of our family. We’ve found at St. Austin that our children’s lives are filled with people who love them, pray for them, and cheer them on as they grow and learn.” Britton and Molly St. Onge
