The academic program covers seven years, from grades 6-12, and is aligned with the best practices and teachings of St. Augustine.

    My experience at Austin Prep has been amazing. There are so many ways to get involved in the school community like joining student-run clubs, athletic teams, and other extracurricular activities. The academics are rigorous but prepare students for college by giving them time management skills, a strong work ethic, and good study habits. There is also plenty of support at Austin through the advisory program, guidance counselors, and college counselors. I am, very grateful for the education and support I have received at Austin!

    AP has offered my students wonderful individual experiences. I will not hesitate to enroll my other children. Austin brings out student's strengths in a place where "everybody knows your name." The faculty & admin staff is caring & always so very responsive. College preparedness: second to none. We appreciate all of the evening workshops, resources & love that dining/ipads are included. The field reno will be amazing! Constructive criticism/need to improve: more after school activities available besides athletics. I am not a fan of clubs held during the school day. I want to know my child is still engaged until 3:30/4 pm while we are still working. Thoughts include an "investment club" or more opportunity & guidance to complete the mission. Low on my list is free block & cell phones. Free block needs to be mandated & become a better portion of the school day. Also, need to tighten up the cell phone policy! Very happy customers!
    Austin Prep is an excellent school that provides an opportunity for all students to thrive regardless of interest(Academics, Arts, Athletics, Faith, Service). The programming allows individuals to development into a complete person. It has a strong family-like community built on mission! It's dedicated faculty and staff prepares the students to succeed at the next level and contribute to the community at-large.
