Shield the Vulnerable


St. Augustine Catholic School and the Archdiocese of Baltimore have a commitment to maintaining the trust of the faithful by providing our children and youth with safe environments characterized by healthy relationships.


With our longstanding commitment in mind, all parishes and archdiocesan Catholic Schools uses Shield the Vulnerable, a compliance management system that allows all parishes and schools to facilitate compliance with archdiocesan child protection requirements for all volunteers who work with minors, employees, and clergy.

All those who wish to work or volunteer in our school must be appropriately screened and trained and provide three written references to the school. All who wish to do so must go to shieldthevulnerable.org. You will register by selecting an organization. Select: "Catholic Dioceses" and then "Baltimore Archdiocese." You will be asked to provide demographic information, including contact information. You will create a login-ID and password. Next you will select your "Affiliation." Because you are working with children, please make sure that you select, "volunteer with substantial contact."

You can find registration instructions here

Thank you for your service to our Church and especially for your commitment to the children and youth. Please contact Mrs. Patricia Schratz, Principal, our screening coordinator, at pschratz@staug-md.org if you have any questions.
