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. Our work is grounded in the gospel of Jesus Christ and the truth that we were created to bring glory to God–in mind, heart, and affections–as we creatively join his redemptive work in the world.


Position Overview


A Principal at The Augustine Academy is first and foremost a lover of Jesus Christ, and as such is therefore also a lover of children and knowledge. Within this relational context, the Principal is responsible to set and maintain a positive (high-joy), inspirational, and peacefully authoritative atmosphere in the school. Every day the Principal is to expect, uphold, shepherd and specifically train teachers and students in the habits of the good life. The Principal supports teachers—through ongoing training, regular observation and feedback—in becoming highly skilled in Charlotte Mason’s “method of a lesson” in classroom instruction. The Principal is to master the breadth and depth of the Upper School curriculum, upholding a rigorous standard of quality and quantity of teacher instruction, and thereby student-produced work. In a broad sense, the Principal 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 Principal reports to the Headmaster.


  • Bachelor’s degree, Master’s or Doctorate preferred
  • Prior exposure to Charlotte Mason’s or Ambleside’s educational philosophy, or willingness and aptitude to learn
  • Exemplary spiritual maturity, full agreement with TAA’s statement of faith
  • Clear possession of “leadership proper,” high emotional security
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills, including public speaking
  • Solid business acumen, management, strategic and operational execution, and problem-solving skills
  • Strong interpersonal, time management, leadership, and organizational skills
  • Computer literacy, working knowledge of Microsoft Office and Google Apps
  • Participation in ASI’s Principal training and mentoring program (provided by school, travel required)
  • CPR and first aid certification (provided by school)
  • Free and clear results on federal and state background check
