We have analyzed several curricula in every grade level and content area in order to identify the best options for our students. We believe that curriculum is a tool to be utilized by a highly effective teacher, but every student is different and must be approached as an individual. We have identified “power standards” in every grade, with rigorous end of year goals for students. Teachers will have a variety of tools and guides to help them pursue those goals, while still respecting the individual teaching style of the teacher and the academic needs of the student.
We strive to provide each student with what they need to learn and continue lifelong learning. For some students this may mean after school or WIN-time tutoring; for others it may mean additional ‘challenge’ classwork to keep the student engaged in learning. Mainly, for most students and on a daily basis, personalized learning will consist of modified learning activities to meet students where they are in their learning and challenge them to master the power standards.
No, Aug Prep is a monolingual school. Students may be offered Spanish classes as an ancillary subject, however, these classes alternate and may not be offered every year. Parents may not request an ancillary subject as they are assigned by grade level and availability.

St Augustine Prep is a non-denominational Christian School. We desire our students to understanding scripture and to develop a personal relationship with Jesus. To this end, our students will have the opportunity to study the Bible and Christian theology in the classroom. They will also attend regular chapel services.
Because we believe that Jesus asks us to follow him in every aspect of our lives, all of our classes will be taught from the perspective of a Christian worldview. Students will have the opportunity to learn from teachers who understand how the Christian faith informs their teaching and their subject areas. Students will be challenged to find connections between subjects like science and literature and a Biblical worldview. In all that we do, we hope to show our students that the gospel powerfully informs the way that Christians live the whole of their lives.
Note: We do not offer communions at Aug Prep.
