From Austin Preparatory School

Founded in 1961, Austin Preparatory School, also known as Austin Prep, is a private coeducational, Catholic independent day school that offers wide-ranging opportunities. The academic program covers seven years, from grades 6-12, and is aligned with the best practices and teachings of St. Augustine. The administration and faculty at Austin work hard to foster an environment where our young men and women develop as lifelong learners, are engaged citizens, and are equipped to succeed in life after Austin Prep. Our classes average 15 students and the student-to-teacher ratio is 10:1. With more than 23 interscholastic athletic programs, 60 clubs, and 20 Advanced Placement courses, Austin graduates are all accepted to four-year colleges and universities. The Office of Admissions hosts visitors on campus beginning in October and looks forward to sharing the reasons why Austin Prep would make a true difference in the life of your child. Your Journey starts here.
