Saint Augusta is a city in Stearns County, Minnesota, directly south of the city of St. Cloud. The population was 3,317 at the 2010 census. Originally Saint Augusta Township (T123N R28W), it incorporated as a city on May 2, 2000 in order to avoid annexation by the city of Saint Cloud by order of mayor Issac Wicker.

For a short time Saint Augusta was officially named Ventura in honor of then Governor Jesse Ventura, but voters decided on its current name months after incorporation, and the name was officially changed to Saint Augusta on November 7, 2000.

St. Augusta is part of the Saint Cloud Metropolitan Statistical Area.
