Students Attend Augustinian Values Institute

Posted April 23rd, 2013


On April 11,12,13 and 14, Ryan Brown, Matthew Dellinger, Sean Lawn, Michael Pallozzi, Joseph Quinlan, Francis Ryan, Michael Scarpato, and Nicholas Scelso accompanied by Fr. Patrick and Mr. Chris McNabb traveled to Malvern Prep Prep School in Malvern, PA to attend the Student Augustinian Values Institute.

SAVI is an event sponsored by the Augustinian Provinces and their respective High Schools.  It draws together students from 9 high schools, across the U.S. and Canada.  The weekend experience is built around the Augustinian values of Unitas, Veritas, Caritas; Unity, Truth and Love.  This yearly event is designed to help students from all Augustinian sponsored high schools to come together and share their common experience of Augustinian education and what makes it unique. The goal is for each school, through various presentations and small group discussions, to clearly see themselves as equal contributors to the unique vision of Augustinian secondary education, centered on its animating charism of unity, truth, and love

Our boys arrived on Thursday afternoon and quickly made themselves at home. They were particularly eager to share their love for St. Augustine Prep by teaching the other schools some of their favorite cheers.  Many of the other schools were particularly struck by the obvious school spirit we enjoy at the prep.

Many friendship were made and still endure, we look forward to some future collaboration with Malvern Prep in particular. Our boys came back with some very good ideas to help further the mission here at St. Augustine Prep and we hope to implement these in the months ahead.  SAVI will be hosted at St. Augustine High School in San Diego, CA next year.
