“Every aspect of our school is designed to help our students succeed and prepare for college,” said Alfonso Carmona, Superintendent of Augustine Prep. “Our learning spaces will encourage positive teacher and student interactions. Our classrooms and labs will utilize the latest technology to help our students prepare for careers in the technical age. And our athletic, performing arts and extracurricular facilities will teach our students perseverance, grit and sportsmanship. Augustine Prep students will become part a high-performing, supportive and loving school community, where faith and scripture are infused into everything we do.”
More than 700 applications have been received for approximately 50 teaching positions at the school, drawing candidates from 39 states. “Passionate and accredited teachers from across the country are drawn to our vision,” said Carmona. “We are creating a team of educators and leaders who are not only highly-qualified, but are also deeply driven to help our students to become persons of high character.”
