Realize Your Full Academic Potential

OUR INTEGRATED, CLASSICAL CURRICULUM
WILL PREPARE YOU FOR COLLEGE—AND FOR LIFE

WHY CHOOSE CHESTERTON ACADEMY?

At Chesterton Academy, our students enjoy a cohesive, content-rich education. They benefit from a broad exposure to many different disciplines, which helps them expand their interests and their ability to think critically.

The Chesterton Academy model begins with a classical, integrated curriculum. You’ll read Homer, Plato, Aristotle, Euclid, Virgil, Dante, Chaucer, Shakespeare, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Teresa of Avila, Dostoyevsky. . . and G.K. Chesterton.

Chesterton students study the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. History, literature, philosophy, and theology are braided together. The sciences and the humanities are also intimately connected, so that the logic of math is seen in philosophy, and God’s handiwork is seen in the sciences.

FAITH AND REASON MEET IN EVERY CLASS

Equal emphasis is given to the arts, so that every student learns to draw and paint, sing in the choir, act on the stage, give speeches, and engage in debate.

Each year builds on the previous, so that by the end of senior year, students develop into articulate, clear-thinking, well-rounded, and, very importantly, joyful individuals.

  • Catholic-centered teaching

  • Academically rigorous, with a mixture of Socratic method and lecture format

GROW IN LEADERSHIP AND VIRTUE

EXPERIENCE TRUE FRIENDSHIP & COMMUNITY THROUGH OUR HOUSE SYSTEM

The Chesterton Academy House system draws on the 1,000 year-old tradition of Christian education exemplified in the colleges at Oxford and Cambridge.

Houses provide real, tangible community within the larger school, giving our students the opportunity to take ownership, to exercise true leadership, and to grow in virtue.

Each student is assigned to one of four houses for their tenure at Chesterton Academy and have the opportunity to lead as a Captain or as an elected House Prefect during their junior and senior year.

The Houses are named after the four saints who hold up the Chair of St. Peter in St. Peter’s Basilica: Saints Ambrose, Augustine, Athanasius, and Chrysostom.
