Welcome to St. Augustine High School! A training ground for leadership through academic excellence, moral values, Christian responsibility and reasonable, consistent discipline. As an institution, we ensure young men are prepared for life.
Created in 1951, our school has been a beacon of hope in the world of education for the African American community. An institution steep in tradition, we provide best in class practices and disciplines for the maturation of our students to go from boyhood to manhood.
It is our mission to sow confidence, nurture God-given talents and expand student’s minds beyond their own imaginations. There is an expectation that every St. Augustine man will leave us ready and prepared to carry the torch of leadership in whichever field he endeavors to embark on.
St. Augustine High School offers a community of brotherhood. It is unmatched across the nation. Lifelong friendships are developed and cultivated. With our unique traditions and values, students’ bond over problem solving in the classrooms, on the playing fields, in activity clubs and within prayer. Our environment is an intimate one where all students are addressed by their last name and with mister in front of it. They are all special and we treat them as such.
Our students are guided, supported and challenged by our talented, committed faculty. They are the true difference makers that empower our young men to be great every day. Nearly 50% of our faculty are graduates of our school, including myself.
I am honored to be the seventh President of St. Augustine High School. My priorities as the school leader are: to sustain tradition while implementing innovative ways to reach and engage our students; ignite resources and relationships to expand our school’s brand globally to share our extraordinary story and to build partnerships with organizations and people that have an affinity for the African American male and their growth.
I am so very honored to have this job at this critical point in our history. I invite you to explore our website and get to know our community. I hope you will realize that we are more than a school. We are a community of faith committed to forming young men prepared to lead lives of leadership and service.
Together, let us ask God’s blessings on our school community that we might faithfully carry forth the mission entrusted to our care.
