Academics

St. Augustine High School commits to the intellectual growth of the individual students focusing on our mission through a distinguished tradition of academic excellence, innovation, and service.

 

It's one thing to provide rigorous academics that challenge students to think critically, apply their knowledge, and grow through classroom- and project-based learning. It's quite another to create a culture of thoughtfulness that helps young men to develop character, leadership skills, and genuine care for others.

Here at St. Augustine high school we know that the Louisiana state requirement is 22 credits but we require 32 credits because we set a very high standard of academic excellence at our institution. Most schools will only require a student to take 4 English, Math, Science and History courses but if a student starts with us in 8th grade they will take 5 classes for each core subject.

Students are welcome to take dual enrollment courses at other surrounding colleges and universities but it must not conflict with their high school class schedule.

In order to qualify for dual enrollment courses a student must have a cumulative GPA of a 2.5 or better and he must be a junior or senior student.
