Named in 1869 for the convent located adjacent to San August?n Cathedral. When the seven Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet finally arrived in 1870, they opened the city's first parochial school for girls next to San August?n. Three years later they opened a school at San Xavier Mission, followed a year later by the establishment of the St. Augustine's Parochial School for Boys.
