Military Families


Military Families play a vital role in our community here in the North Country and at Augustinian Academy. The diversity and life experiences these students bring to our school are enjoyed and welcomed by all. Our teachers have tremendous experience and excel at integrating new students into the classroom throughout the year and will ensure your child’s success. We have a Military Family Life Counselor in our school to assist our military children with issues unique to the military lifestyle. Approximately 70% of our student population is affiliated with the Military. We are proud of our wonderful relationship with Fort Drum and our military families!

New to Fort Drum and Augustinian Academy? Have questions about the area and/or the school? We would be more than happy to put you in contact with another of our military families who can help you out and answer your questions. We embrace our military families as our family! Welcome to the North Country!
