St. Augustine Preparatory Academy is a non-denominational Christian school. All of our faculty and staff are committed followers of Christ who desire to share the love of Jesus with our students. Because we desire to be a community growing in our knowledge and worship of Christ, Aug Prep will be a school where students, faculty, and staff:
Discipling Heart, Head and Hands
Christian discipleship is the striving of the whole person to follow Christ. It is not merely the acquisition of knowledge about God, Jesus, and the Bible. Nor is it merely the formation of one’s affections and desires. Nor is it merely engaging in Christian practices like prayer, reading Scripture and service. Jesus calls his followers to give the whole of their lives him.
Aug Prep seeks to provide students with discipleship opportunities that engage the heart, head, and hands. Through our K4-12 Christian Studies Curriculum, our students will engage, explore, debate and investigate the biblical text and Christian tradition. Through weekly chapel services, our students will grow their hearts and minds in the worship of God. Through service projects, our students will learn what it means to be ambassadors of Christ’s love and to put the needs of others before our own.
On November 1, 2017, Aug Prep welcomed the worship team from Nairobi Chapel in Nairobi, Kenya. During our chapel services, they shared their songs of worship, which bring together contemporary music and traditional African rhythms. Their lively music inspired our students to dance and sing along! Our students also had the opportunity to learn about African culture and the country of Kenya. Our guests spoke to us about the importance of knowing that we can love and accept ourselves because God first loved us. They taught us a Swahili phrase: Mimi ni wa dhamana kwa Mungu. It means, “I am precious to God.”
