It was founded by the Order of Saint Augustine in 1956. Governance of the College has now broadened to include a College Board comprising of parents, staff, members of the Augustinian Provincial Council and Augustinian priests.
Situated in the Diocese of Broken Bay, the College has an enrolment of over 1,100 students. It has a total staff of 150 including those who work on a part-time basis. It has a lay Principal, Jonathan Byrne and a Head of School, Matthew Hutchison. In 2017 Fr Senan Ward O.S.A. is chaplain.Following from their heritage and tradition as an Augustinian Catholic school, St Augustine's Mission Statement and Strategic Plan (2011 -2015) is committed to providing a quality Augustinian education to all members of their community, including the maintenance of the traditions and heritage of the Augustinians, whose Patron, St Augustine believed that education should provide enhancement and opportunities for the development of servant leadership.
St Augustine's College prides itself on providing for their students, a broad range of quality education experiences.
St Augustine's College has a strong and consistent building programme. Consequently, over recent years we have seen the refurbishment of classrooms, grounds and offices, as well as the major building developments:
The Brimson Centre (2003)The Lecceto Arts Centre (2005)Senior Study Houses - Moran and Cameron House (2008)St Mary MacKillop Centre (2009)Quadrangle and Tolentine Park (2012)St Possidius Chalets (2012)
The College has built a strong tradition in educating boys spiritually, intellectually, physically and vocationally.Their educational structure is empathetic to the different developmental needs of students in the early, middle and senior phase of boys’ learning.
To that end, they have a ‘Three Schools – One College’ model operating with a Primary School (Years 7,8, & 9) and Senior School (Years 10, 11 & 12). Each ‘school’ is led by a Dean of School, each with the responsibility of managing boys’ academic, spiritual and pastoral life. They place the highest priority on the value of each individual and recognise that students perform best in a supportive, safe and welcoming environment appropriate to their stage of development.
