Sending our son, Robert, to St. Augustine Academy in Bridgeport, CT was the best decision we could have made on his behalf. The principal, teachers, and staff are absolutely amazing and are genuinely interested in helping the students become well-rounded individuals. The entire school community contributes to providing a balanced and nurturing environment for the students to thrive. Our son has not only gained in-depth academic knowledge but has also developed team leadership skills, presentation skills, and an understanding of the value of helping the community. He has built supportive friendships that will last a lifetime as they follow their own paths towards their goals. Our son just had his 8th grade graduation ceremony and we are confident he is well prepared for the new chapter of his education in high school. Words cannot express enough the gem that St. Augustine truly is and I absolutely recommend St. Augustine Academy to any family looking to provide their child with a rewarding educational experience.

My daughter came back to the catholic school system after attending public school for a few years. She attended St. Augustine for 8th grade and she absolutely looooooved it there. From the staff to the students she had not one complaint. Every teacher she had was amazing and as a parent, I will forever be indebted to that school for helping my daughter excel in her schooling. Highly recommended. 5stars all around.
