Welcome Crusaders!

Austin Catholic High School prepares the student for more than just academics. Our aim is to develop the entire person – academically, socially, and spiritually. In addition to a rigorous academic curriculum, Austin offers a Catholic environment and a host of extra-curricular activities to enable each student to realize his or her full potential.

CHRISTIAN FORMATION

PHILOSOPHY

The focus of the pastoral program of Austin Catholic is to build a strong, healthy Christian community based upon the ideals of the Gospel and of the Order of St. Augustine: TRUTH, UNITY AND LOVE. The program is intended to help each individual recognize his/her own unique gifts and talents and to develop these talents to their fullest potential. The students, along with the faculty and staff, constitute a faith community, which seeks to grow in love of God and neighbor through the process of education, participation and cooperation as they spend time together in the Austin environment.

The Campus Ministry Office provides many opportunities for each student to enrich and develop his/her spiritual life. Throughout the course of the year there will be Mass, celebrations of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, formal prayer opportunities, opportunities for individual prayer, and retreat programs. All religious programs, as well as four years of formal classroom instruction in Religion, are designed to cultivate a solid foundation in the Christian life.

All senior students must attend the "senior retreat." This retreat is a graduation requirement. The student can only be excused with the permission of the Principal, provided arrangements for the makeup of the retreat are settled. All students should plan to attend their class retreat.

Spiritual direction, pastoral counseling and the Sacrament of Reconciliation are always available from a variety of local priests.

In case of emergency, hospitalization or death of a close family member, students and/or parents should contact the Campus Ministry Office as soon as possible. The office serves as an outreach of pastoral care to parents, staff and alumni.

Apart from the religious program and academic instruction in religion at school, each student is expected to be practicing his/her faith with the family in their respective churches on the days normally set aside for this community worship. Wherever possible, each student is encouraged to become involved in church programs and activities.

It is the expectation and hope of Austin Catholic High School that each student present himself/herself as a Christian person at all times and proudly uphold the high standards of excellence that characterize Austin

Dress Code

Austin Catholic expects our young men and women to be dressed for academic success. We believe that the appearance of students reflects their preparation for learning, their focus on study, and their desire to prepare themselves for adult life by conforming to a standard of dress and appearance which reflects their commitment to their education.  The dress code is meant to teach discipline, to enhance self-esteem, to breakdown social economic barriers, and to prepare students for professional careers. The young men and women of Austin must realize that they represent the values and education of our school in the public.
