Groups of faculty, staff, board members, and other stakeholders representing each of the Augustinian high schools of North America, and guests from around the world, are invited to meet at a rotating host school site. During their time together they hear presentations on St. Augustine and learn an understanding of the Augustinian core values of Truth, Unity and Love which are foundational to an Augustinian education.
They pray together, share reflections with other school communities, participate in activities that promote the formation of community among the high schools, and develop particular strategies to implement the values at the participant’s home school.
The goal of the AVI is to gain and deepen an appreciation of the Augustinian charism and style. The Institute creates a sense of community, appreciation, solidarity and mutual support for the Augustinian school mission.
