Saints is an excellent high school with a culture that is unmatched. This culture, along with many other dynamics are collectively referred to as the Saints Experience. Within the Saints Experience, one would experience a fraternal atmosphere with a Catholic influence from weekly Mass, well-rounded curriculum with courses based on a liberal arts education; both of which are delivered by genuine lay and religious faculty. In addition to these, one would find wholesome retreats through the Campus Ministry office, the best high school student section called The Pit, and many other opportunities to grow into a Christian gentleman.

My experience at Saints has been an experience I never imagined especially how everyone is treated as brother. The school came up with the motto of having truth, love, and unity. That is what the school offers you, even as a community. What I liked about most about Saints was the academics. If you are willing to go as far as you can in your academics, you can. What I would like to see a change here at Saints would be having a higher focus on people having connections outside of Saints. My almost four years at saints has lacked many connections with outside schools, like our sister school. Because we are an all boy school, I think some of the boys didn't have a proper introduction of meeting women or other people that we don't know.
When I first started to attend St. Augustine as a Freshman it was very difficult for me. I lived in a small town thirty-three miles away, so I didn't know anybody there. It was a harsh first year consisting of me sitting alone at lunch, doing group projects for classes alone, and always being chosen last for any team in P.E. I was alone for the majority of my Freshman year. Resulting in me going down a dark path in which would ultimately almost take my life. It would not be till my sophomore year I would make my first friend at school. This would lead me to find my own group in school filled with people who love me. Every one of them saved me from myself and I will always be grateful to them. Now in school I am a major volunteer spending every morning and afternoon volunteering in the schools main office. All the administration, faculty, and students know me and appreciate everything I do for the school. I could not be happier than I am right now at St. Augustine.
