Augustinian Academy Recognized as a Common Sense School

Digital media and technology are evolving at a dizzying pace, both unlocking extraordinary

opportunities and posing real risks for young people. Students are using the immense

power of the internet and mobile technology to explore, connect, create, and learn in ways

never before imagined, both in and out of the classroom. At the same time, tech use can

bring up ethical challenges such as cyberbullying and misinformation and health issues

related to media balance and social and emotional well-being.

Augustinian Academy sees these as teachable moments. We believe that digital citizenship skills

have become essential for students in the 21st century, especially this school year. That is

why we are committed to teaching our students how to be digital learners, leaders, and


Augustinian Academy has just been approved as a Common Sense School, an honor that

recognizes our efforts in teaching digital citizenship to young people and engaging the

entire school community in this important discussion. The recognition acknowledges our

school's commitment to helping students build skills that are essential for their well-being

today—and for the opportunities they'll have tomorrow.

This honor is provided by Common Sense Education, part of a national nonprofit

organization dedicated to improving the lives of kids and families by providing the

trustworthy information, education, and independent voice they need to thrive in a world

of media and technology.

We are one of the more than 80,000 schools across the country that use Common Sense

Education's groundbreaking education resources. As a result, our students are better

equipped to navigate the digital world and use devices for learning.
