History Saint Augustine’s College is a four-year, private, coeducational liberal arts college affiliated with the Episcopal Church. It was founded in 1867 as Saint Augustine’s Normal School and Collegiate Institute by the Protestant Episcopal Church and the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina. The name changed to Saint Augustine’s School in 1893 and to Saint Augustine’s Junior College in 1919, the first year in which postsecondary level instruction was offered. The school became a four-year institution in 1927 and in 1928 was renamed Saint Augustine’s College. Baccalaureate degrees were first awarded in 1931. The College prepares students for graduate school or a professional career through its liberal arts, teacher-education, and career programs.
