Mission Statement

The Augustine Academy is an intentional educational community centered around the spiritual, moral, intellectual, and civic formation of children, partnering with parents to equip young people to thoughtfully engage the world.

Position Overview


A teacher at The Augustine Academy is first and foremost a lover of Jesus Christ, children and knowledge. Within this relational context, the Teacher is responsible to set and maintain a positive (high-joy), inspirational, and peacefully authoritative atmosphere in and out of the classroom. Every day the teacher is to instruct, expect, uphold, shepherd and specifically train students in “the habits of the good life” (students’ ways of relating to work and persons). Through ongoing training, regular observation and feedback, study and practice, the teacher is to become highly skilled in Charlotte Mason’s “method of a lesson” in classroom instruction. The Teacher is to master the breadth and depth of the curriculum, upholding a rigorous standard of quality and quantity of student-produced work. In a broad sense, the Teacher also represents the school in and out of the classroom and acts on behalf of the school by professionally and warmly interacting with all students, parents, teachers, staff and visitors. The Teacher reports to the Headmaster and/or other designated senior-level leadership staff.
