Let us know you are interested in The Augustine Academy by submitting an Online Form via the link at the bottom of this page. You are also welcome to call the school at (262) 361-3322. It is best to begin learning about our school in the winter of the academic year prior to the year for which you would like to apply so that your family has time to attend an Open House during the spring semester, although you may inquire at any time.
2. Attend Open House
Prospective families will join for our morning assembly or chapel, followed by an introduction to our unique mission, model, and educational philosophy, and conclude with classroom observations and an opportunity to view student work and curriculum. Applications for admission are only accepted from those that have attended an Open House; therefore, at least one parent (guardian) must attend an Open House before beginning an application for admission.

3. Student Shadow or PreK/K Explore Day (optional)
Our Student Shadow and Explore Days are a chance for your students to be immersed in our unique model of education for a day. Shadowing allows prospective students to come during an on-campus day of school and observe regular classes. Explore Days are specially scheduled days for prospective students to experience a day of school as if a brand new Kindergartener or 1st grader. They will have the opportunity to participate and ask questions. Shadow days are recommended for Grades 2-8, while Explore Days are available for those entering K-1.

4. Submit an Online Application
Carefully read the information provided at our Open House and prayerfully consider if The Augustine Academy is a good fit for your family. You will need to create a user account to begin and submit an application through Classreach. You can mail the application fee to: The Augustine Academy, PO Box 180066, Delafield, WI 53018. Your application will be reviewed once the application fee is received.
5. Parent Reading
6. Parent Interview with The Augustine Academy Board
An interview with both parents (or guardian/s) will be scheduled after your application has been received and reviewed. This interview will be a time to discuss your family's educational needs and to explore if The Augustine Academy can partner with you to appropriately and successfully meet those needs.
7. Student Assessment
Schedule an assessment of your children to determine their class placement (assessment cost included in the enrollment fee).
After the interview and assessment, families will receive an email with the Board's admission decision. Accepted families will receive an enrollment packet and instructions to be completed and returned to the school to secure enrollment. Upon enrollment, a $200 (before May 15th) or $350 (before July 1st) per student enrollment fee and tuition deposit of $500/student is required. Both the enrollment fee and tuition deposit are non-refundable. The enrollment fee holds a student’s spot in their class. Current Augustine students are given priority over new enrollees until April 30, provided there is room in the class. After April 30, all enrollees are considered on a first-come; first-serve basis. Classes max at 16 students, and wait-lists will be established for classes that exceed maximum capacity.
9. Attend Family Education Week
TAA's Family Education Week is 3.5 days of community-building and training tailored especially for parents. As a school founded on the rich pedagogy of Charlotte Mason, the inspiration of the Classical model, and the primacy of parents in the educational journey, we pack our training days full of both practical teaching concepts and mission, as well as covering information specifically related to The Augustine Academy and our procedures and policies, giving you tools to help your school year be successful. The last morning of the week, we host student and parent orientations in the classrooms with your child's teacher(s). TAA students will join for that time. This training is required, in its entirety, for the co-teacher (parent/guardian) who will be overseeing the satellite (home) classroom, though we certainly welcome both parents to attend, as the content is rich.
