Augustine Classical Academy

A nonprofit organization

What if you could support a school that left you saying, "If only I had been educated like this"?

Now you can. Far from curricula devoted to standardized-test performance, the classical, Christian approach fosters a love of learning and equips students with tools for a lifetime of discovery.


We LOVE ACA! Not only are our kids being taught effectively and diligently, they are incredibly well cared for, loved, and being shaped to be the kind of adults that we envision them becoming. We've found that ACA is more than just a school (although it's a fantastic school), but also a really genuine and welcoming community. We couldn't ask for a better school to send our kids! - Parent (reviewed at

We have been at ACA since January this year. My oldeat son is in Preschool and my younger son will go next year. I love being able to leave my son at school feeling 100% confident that his teachers care about him, his education, and his heart. The teachers are very accessible, willing to discuss any concerns, and give regular feedback. The weekly email about what he's learning is incredible. I've never had communication like this from other schools we've attended. My son is always singing a new song, nursery rhyme or telling me a new science fact he learned. We are very happy with our choice to go to ACA. -Krissa B., current parent (reviewed at Google Reviews)

My son went to Augustine's preschool for one year and I was very sad that we needed to move an hour away, so he wasn't able to continue to attend. The teachers are amazing, the head of the school is amazing and the directors are amazing. They're all caring and considerate. They clearly have high standards for teaching the children, keeping them safe and helping them thrive. I've worked with children for 13 years now and can say I've never seen this type of wonderful environment anywhere else. Nothing compares to ACA. It's a gift to be able to send your child there. - Kelley B., parent (reviewed at Google Reviews)


Augustine Classical Academy exists to partner with families to provide a preschool-12th education that equips students to know, love, and practice what is true, virtuous, and beautiful. We encourage our students to strive for excellence as they live for the glory of God and the good of all people.

Background Statement

Classical education is fundamentally about the cultivation of wisdom and virtue. It employs a time-proven approach to provide students with the tools for a lifetime of learning. High academic standards allow students to rise to their God-given potential. Our vision reaches beyond teaching children what to think; we're also teaching them how to think. In the tradition of western civilization, education and classical education have always been synonymous.
