CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR EIGHTH GRADE STUDENTS!

We are pleased to announce that 100% of our eighth graders were admitted to their first choice Catholic High Schools. To date they have been awarded $78,000 in academic and leadership scholarships ($312,000 over four years)! We are awaiting word on additional scholarships.  

Feedback from the Admissions Directors regarding our students was very positive. St. Augustine School enjoys an outstanding reputation among Catholic high schools for the caliber of the students that we send to them and the contributions our students make to their communities throughout their secondary careers.

One of the high school principals stated, “On a side note, whatever you are doing, KEEP DOING IT!  We interviewed 45-50 out of 600+ applications for our Scholars Program. I must tell you that your students were “rock stars” in the interview.” 

We are so proud of our students and grateful to their parents for supporting and encouraging them. This is also a testament to the dedication, expertise, and hard work of the St. Augustine faculty. Kudos to the faculty and students!!!!!  SAS Students Make the Goal!
