A Message From Our Head of School
On behalf of the Augustinians, faculty, staff and your Hermit brothers it is my privilege to welcome you to what will be an incredible high school experience. In choosing Saint Augustine Prep you have selected a rigorous twenty-first century education that is grounded in the Augustinian values of Truth, Unity and Love.
Even though the decision of your secondary education has been made, I am sure that you continue to have questions. The following information is in response to many of the concerns that you may have and, hopefully, will make your transition to Saint Augustine Prep seamless. Please, if you have additional questions or concerns, we will be happy to help you.
Again, welcome to the hermit brotherhood. We are blessed to have you among us!
Fr. Robert Murray, OSA
CLASS OF 2024 & NEW STUDENT CONTRACTS AND TUITION PAYMENTS
Our first wave of contracts was released to the Class of 2024 and New Students on April 22, 2020. When a contract is released the family will receive an email notification explaining our online contract format. At that point, contracts will be accessible in your Online Application account, making it an easy process to review and complete. Payment plans will be available and deposit extensions have been considered due to the current pandemic.
We are pleased to announce that St. Augustine Prep has partnered with Smart Tuition for the processing and collection of tuition and fees for the 2020-2021 school year. Families will need to enroll in Smart Tuition–a simple process that is explained when a student’s contracts is released.
COURSE REGISTRATION AND PLACEMENT TESTING
Having worked in Admissions for many years, I understand the careful consideration that went into the decision of St. Augustine Preparatory School for your high school experience. As we navigate through an educational experience that is anything but certain, we want you to be assured of our steadfast commitment to the orientation process for the Class of 2024. On May 15, families in the class of 2024 received an email detailing the next steps which include course registration, placement testing, and class schedules. The full email may be found HERE.
