Educating Students To The Glory of God

At Augustine School, our faculty and staff bring their unique qualifications and experience toward the goal of educating children and young adults to the glory of God. The following characteristics describe the typical Augustine faculty member:

  • An expressed belief and practice of the historic Christian faith within a local church context
  • A love of learning and commitment to the pursuit of wisdom
  • A deep-rooted joy in contributing to the growth and education of children
  • A commitment to participating and investing in the broader school community

For those who are interested in teaching at Augustine School, please feel free to download and submit our Faculty Application. We also recommend you read The Lost Tools of Learning by Dorothy Sayers to begin to understand Augustine School’s philosophy of education.

Those who know, do. Those that understand, teach.
