“The St. Augustine Experience”

Talk with parents of current and former students (we can put you in touch). Let alumni and current Saintsmen tell of their experiences. Plan a visit to the campus. We have an annual Open House in November, scheduled day visits for 7th and 8th graders in October, and we can arrange other opportunities at your convenience. Please contact Director of Admissions, Mike Haupt at mhaupt@sahs.org with any questions.

How to Get Started

If you feel that St. Augustine is the right school for you, it's time to get underway. Enrollment time is an opportunity for you to set your goals and determine how you can best contribute to and benefit from the "St. Augustine Experience."

For 8th Grade Students:

  • To begin, complete the online application for admission. Pre-registration is recommended, but registration will be accepted on the day of the test. The test will be given Saturday, January 21st, 2017 at 8:30 am. Financial aid forms are due by Monday, January 23rd, 2017 and will be available on our website by mid-December.
  • Saints will request academic records from your elementary school and a recommendation from your principal and teachers.
  • Evaluation of these records and the results of the Entrance Test will be made by the Saints Admission Team. We will make an appointment for an interview with you at Saints. Non-Catholic school students are encouraged to bring a letter of recommendation from their pastor to the interview.
  • Formal acceptance of new Saintsmen will be made by the end of March.
