Austin Preparatory School


An Austin Prep education is preparation for the journey of life.

The school’s mission is “to inspire hearts to unite, minds to inquire, and hands to serve.” It’s not the formal curriculum, however, that prepares students to go the distance. It’s the unwritten curriculum of veritas, unitas, and caritas (truth, unity, love) that Austin Prep imprints on the hearts of graduates that guides them on their inner journey.

The school’s academic program for young men and women covers seven years, from grade 6 through grade 12, and because of this extended time shared with students, the school has the ability to offer wide-ranging opportunities for academic, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual growth at critical stages of a student’s adolescent development. Austin Prep believes all teachers and administrators share responsibility for students’ formation through direct instruction, the example of their daily behavior, language, and demeanor, and support of students’ participation in the spiritual life of Austin Preparatory School. Community has always been at the core of an Augustinian education.

Understanding and appreciating this principle of community is one of the most important focuses of Austin Preparatory School’s approach to education. “At Austin Prep, we are on a journey that is life-changing and important,” says Head James Hickey Ph.D. “Our patron, St. Augustine, embarked on a journey for the truth. At our core is an institution on the same journey, committed to exemplary teaching and learning.”

Harassment, discrimination and racism runs rampant here. Even through the administration knows, they don't do a thing. Good academics, but if you can send...
