Every student learns differently.

If your child is struggling academically or if traditional school models aren’t a good fit, you don’t need a short-term fix. You need a lasting solution. Welcome to Delaware’s only 1-on-1 Private School!

Every child is unique and so is Augustine Hills School. We cater to children who want to learn but struggle to do that in a traditional classroom environment. Does your child need a four-day week for school? Do they suffer from anxiety or depression? Does your child need a safe, drug free place to learn? Does your child have the ability to work at a faster pace? Would greater 1-on-1 engagement help your student to learn?

Augustine Hills is unique in its approach. We approach education in a whole new way, challenging your child to redefine the very definition of what “school” can be.  With an unprecedented teacher-to-student ratio of 1:1 for all courses, we offer the proven teaching and testing methods that will enable your child to truly learn.

Flipping the model

At most schools, students are placed in classes.

At Augustine Hills School, students are placed with teachers. 

There are no classrooms at Augustine Hill School. Instead, there are simply great teachers who teach to your child’s specific learning style.

Augustine Hills School hand-picks each teacher based on a variety of selection criteria such as your child’s academic profile, individual learning style, and any specific challenges they face. Our experienced instructors help determine your child’s strengths and identify areas for improvement, crafting a personalized learning plan that will help him achieve academic success.

At Augustine Hills, we know that success is not solely about improving reading proficiency or acing Algebra. Changing your child’s current path also requires an increase in confidence, a boost to self-esteem, and the development of a lifelong love of learning.  Our nurturing instructors and staff mentor students and provide a safe learning environment. Teachers, parents, and students work as a team. Together, we help kids get back on track academically, as well as heal and grow emotionally.


Augustine Hills School is committed to continuing to provide our students with a safe and supportive environment as we begin the 2022-2023 school year. Throughout our educational program, we have implemented the recommendations of health officials.

Individuals entering our school are asked to wear proper PPE and have a temperature check when they enter the building. Classrooms and other parts of the facility are sanitized throughout the day. Our student teacher ratio of 1:1 allows for physical distancing in the classroom and throughout the building. It also allows us to easily make transitions between in person learning, online learning, or a hybrid approach of using both in person leaning and online.

Our staff works with families and students to determine which approach is best for each student according to the student’s and family’s needs. Contact us to create a learning plan for your child that is safe, consistent, and meets the needs of your child and family.
