Letter from School Leadership

Dear Saint Augustine Catholic School Parents,

Thank you for choosing St. Augustine Catholic School! We are so excited to partner with you to help your children learn and grow both academically and in their relationship with Jesus Christ.

We are proud to be the oldest PreK-8 Catholic School in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. St. Augustine has been providing a strong Catholic education for over 160 years.  To ensure our academic programs are relevant and strategies used within the classroom are current, we continue to evaluate, reflect, and seek ways to meet the needs of our students.

We could not continue to offer the lowest tuition rates in the area and provide academic and facility updates, along with competitive faculty and staff wages, without your support of our Race for Education, Annual Fund, and spring fundraiser.  Your partnership helps us continue to grow and develop student-minded programs while maintaining and offering affordable tuition options.

Our school theme for the 2021-22 school year is “Year of the Eucharist - Encountering Christ in our daily lives". Below is a table containing our monthly focus areas, which will guide our prayers and actions for the upcoming school year. We encourage our SAS School community to partner with us on this endeavor, so our students, your children, see the presence of Christ within our school, our families, and our community.  We hope to provide opportunities for our students to develop into the leaders God calls them to be.

Thank you to our veteran families, who have shared the good happening at St. Augustine. This upcoming school year, we welcome 45+ new students! We take the faith development of your children, our team, and community seriously.  This administrative team is collaborative and supportive in our efforts to promote and enhance Catholic education. May the 2021-22 school year be filled with learning, laughter, and much joy.

Yours in Christ,

Joseph Miller        Laura Kaplan                          Reverend Dale Picarella
