St. Augustine Cathedral School, a Catholic Faith community, welcomes and shapes young people as they grow in the knowledge and skills needed for their lives today and in the future.
Saint Augustine Cathedral Parish has been providing a Catholic education to the children of the parish and surrounding community.
Our staff is fully certified, with many instructors holding advanced degrees.
Staff must also meet the requirements of the Catechist Certification Program through the Diocese of Kalamazoo.
We have a strong core curriculum based on a traditional program of reading, writing, arithmetic, and Christian values.
We also offer exceptional programs in art, music, creative writing, physical education, computer science, and other areas.
The Catholic community supports and encourages each child in his/her quest for spiritual, intellectual, social and physical development.
All share in the Gospel message of peace, love, self-discipline, patience and respect for each other, while strengthening the value of friendship and embracing individual differences and family cultures.
As students grow within this community, they are made aware of the needs of others, both locally and globally, through action and service on behalf of the poor and needy.
