The purpose of Augustine Classical Preschool (ACP) is to provide a high-quality early childhood experience for your child in a safe, enjoyable and exciting environment where children develop and grow using a fun and developmentally-appropriate curriculum. We strive to prepare your child for the formal learning classroom they will encounter in Kindergarten. Our preschool program prepares students for the classical model of education, emphasizing memorization in an enjoyable way and engaging with rich literature and stories, emphasizing God’s story. Teachers support and encourage children’s pre-academic progress by teaching with the grain of each child and their unique development.

Circle time, creative play, song and movement, outdoor activities and exploration, and art are all parts of our program, in which students learn the joys of exploration in multiple contexts. Our teachers express clear expectations, demonstrate abundant grace, and understand the significant transition that is taking place as our youngest students begin their journeys of learning.

Augustine Classical Preschool believes the parent to be the primary educator in a child’s life, both practically and by God’s design and command. For this reason, parental involvement is integral to the success of any child’s educational experience. Many opportunities are available and parents are encouraged to be involved in their child’s preschool experience.
