Augustine Classical Academy developed as the vision of a handful of families who, in their quest for excellent education for their children, were introduced to the movement that is reviving classical education in America. Some came to a classical approach through their association with classical schools in other states while others were drawn through their own reading and homeschooling endeavors. All, however, were inspired by the vision of a revival of the Christian intellectual community with the goal of seeing a generation raised up that is prepared to influence every sphere of our society for the glory of God. In 2009, Augustine opened its doors to 9 students in grades 8-10. Now, nine years later, enrollment is poised to exceed 100 students in grades K-12.
