Angels in Action
Service to others is an important component of a St. Augustine School education. The students participate in a variety of service projects throughout the year. These projects are organized by the Student Council and National Junior Honor Society.
“Love has the hands to help others, the feet to hasten to the poor and needy, eyes to see needs and sadness, ears to hear the sighs of people. This is what love looks like.” – St. Augustine
