The school covers grades from kindergarten through 12th grade, so children are taught to be creative and independent all through their educational career. The school has extracurricular and athletics programs to be sure that all students are well-rounded individuals, with options like tennis, community service programs, soccer, and cross country.
The Tagaste Monastery is a community of Augustinian Recollects, Catholic monks who have taken a vow to follow the monastic Rule of Saint Augustine. The monastery is named after the birthplace of Saint Augustine and serves as a formation house for new monks, the equivalent of a monastic seminary. Novice monks spend a minimum of six years at Tagaste learning the rhythm and discipline of monastic life as well as taking seminary classes. While monastic life involves a level of seclusion the monks always welcome visitors, and are happy to show them the monastery grounds or discuss finer points of doctrine.
