Athletics & Activities

St. Augustin Catholic School offers a variety of enrichment activities for all students. Primary level students are offered academic and recreational programs, and our older students enjoy participating in St. Augustin athletics, fine arts, and other middle school activities.

St. Augustin Athletics Policy

Our goal for all middle school sports programs is to encourage good sportsmanship on and off the field. St. Augustin athletics strives to provide all students with an opportunity to learn competitive sports. The sportsmanship displayed by students, coaches and fans at all St. Augustin sports events must reflect the values of our Catholic Christian School. Read St. Augustin Catholic School’s full Athletic Policy in the Student Handbook.
