The Goals of St. Augustine High School are the following:
- To open its doors to young men, especially the economically disadvantaged, who are willing to strive for excellence;
- To develop each individual to the fullness of his own unique capacity;
- To foster Christian values based on the sacred scriptures and Roman Catholic Tradition;
- To provide each student with educational opportunities and experiences related to his African-American heritage and his American citizenship;
- To instill in each student the responsibilities of leadership in family, church, community and society at-large; and,
- To carry out the mission of Evangelization as part of the Josephite charism.
Under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, St. Augustine High School is the training ground for leadership through academic excellence, moral values, Christian responsibility and reasonable, consistent discipline.
