To continually intensify the student spirituality of each member in instruction, CSA-Biñan created activities this year that highlighted God as the center of everything.

These activities impart Catholic beliefs, values, practices, and traditions, such as the first ever Augustinian Youth Jamboree held last November 29 - 30, 2013 at CSA grounds with the theme Set forth the Truth, Augustinian Youth! and attended by more than 600 youths and facilitators. The Campus Ministry, together with the offices under the supervision of the Office of the Vice - President for Augustinian Formation and Religious Affairs (VP - AFRA), spearheaded the said activity in coordination with the committee members from the different departments.

The youth participants came from Sto. Niño de Cebu Parish, Mother of Good Counsel Parish, Nuestra Senora de Gracia Parish, San Augustin Center of Studies, Quezon city and Colegio San Agustin - Biñan. The jamboree was filled with events that motivated and energized the participants to achieve what was aimed by the program, that is to seek the truth and embrace the challenges of being an Augustinian Youth.

Rev. Fr. Leomar F. Singco, O.S.A. was the keynote speaker on the topic A Talk on Truth. The activity culminated with a mass celebrated by Rev. Fr. Jose R. Gonzales O.S.A. and presided by Rev. Fr. Leomar F. Singco, O.S.A. It was truly an event in the lives of young Augustinians that helped them seek for the truth.

In addition to continue the rich tradition of the Augustinians, the Religious Education Department (RED) initiated a plan to write a series of books entitled Augustinian Christian Values Education composed of Augustinian core values (Veritas, Unitas, Cartias). Last July 2013, the series of books was approved by the School President and Principal and formally introduced to the academic heads of each department. The series of books will be launched on February 2015 and its full implementation will be in the academic year 2015 - 2016.

Moreover, to develop a learned individual that appreciates and understands Saint Augustine, the RED hosted a contest on the life and works of Saint Augustine which was done by letting the students interpret in an extemporaneous manner their chosen famous quotations. Each level from the different departments participated in the said event.
