Faculty & Staff

Excellence Begins With Our Teachers

At Augustine School, our faculty and staff are dedicated to academic excellence and Christian maturity. Each day they bring their unique qualifications and experience toward the goal of educating children and young adults to the glory of God--both in the classroom and out.

What does a typical Augustine School teacher look like? We believe the following characteristics describe the typical Augustine faculty member:

  • Our teachers are committed Christians who hold to the truth of the Gospel and historic Christian belief while practicing their faith under the authority and accountability of a local church community. 
  • Our teachers love learning and are committed to the pursuit of wisdom, which fuels their passion to teach students to pursue the good, the true, and the beautiful in all of life.
  • Our teachers share a deep-rooted joy in contributing to the growth and education of children.
  • Our teachers are dedicated to participating and investing in our broader Augustine School community and culture.

We believe that the personal integrity, academic excellence, and devotion to students that our faculty and staff display at Augustine School is one of our greatest strengths as a school. See below for a list of our current teachers and administrators.
