Go Purple Knights!
Interscholastic extracurricular and athletic competition is a time-honored cornerstone of the St. Augustine High School experience. We recognize the important balance between academics, extracurricular activities and athletics, and the role they perform collectively in the development of young men, as well as in the life of the entire St. Augustine community. Interscholastic competition is available from grades 8–12, with more than 80 percent of our students competing or participating in one or more of the 24 activities and sports available.The St. Augustine athletic department is home to 9 different sports, with a combined 18 teams at the Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Freshmen levels. And with no-cut sports such as cross country, golf, tennis, bowling, fishing, and soccer, there’s a place for everyone who wants to play.The coaching staff at St. Augustine stresses competing with character--sportsmanship, teamwork, resilience, and humility are just some of the values that the young men learn and experience through activities and sports.
We are proud of the success St. Augustine groups and athletes have established. Our teams consistently earn banners and win championships, and our players frequently earn recognition as All-District and Times-Picayune All-Metro athletes. Our athletes have been recognized for their academic achievements. Many even receive national honors and college scholarships. In addition, many of our graduates have distinguished themselves with their achievements competing on intercollegiate teams.
St. Augustine enjoys a rich tradition of excellence in interscholastic activities and athletics. We welcome your participation in this tradition.Director of Athletics & Activities
