Greetings from the Head of School

In the tradition of St. Augustine, Austin Preparatory School,

an independent, private Catholic middle and high school,

has been on a journey for nearly 60 years.

Augustine of Hippo, widely known for his “restless heart,” embarked on a journey for the Truth. At the core of Austin Prep is an institution on the same journey, committed to exemplary teaching and learning. Leading Austin students on this journey is a dedicated faculty of worthy exemplars.  

Our capacity to marshal the Augustinian tradition – educating minds, transforming lives, and touching hearts – is strengthened every day by nearly 6,000 Austin Prep alumni who continue to leave their imprint on the world. Augustine of Hippo loved to be with people. Or to say it another way, St. Augustine loved community – a hallmark of Austin Prep. 

Keeping with the Augustinian tradition of veritas, unitas, and caritas – truth, unity, and love – I invite you to join our community – and our journey. 

In the spirit of veritas, unitas, and caritas,

James Hickey, Ph.D. P'22, '23, '24, '27
