Chesterton Academy’s House system is drawn from the 1,000 year-old tradition of Christian education exemplified in the colleges at Oxford and Cambridge. The Houses provide real, tangible community within the larger school, giving students the opportunity to take ownership, fulfill the call to leadership, and to cultivate the ideal conditions for virtue. Each House has two Senior and two Junior prefects, two faculty advisors, and several parent liaisons.
Daily Mass The Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life." For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself, our Pasch. CCC 1324 For this reason, every school day begins with Mass.
Faith at the Center The faith is the central reality from which all academic disciplines flow and derive their meaning. Faith is at the core of our academic program. All subjects we teach through lens of the Church. This makes our school unique. Religion at CA is not merely one academic subject among many.
Retreats and Prayer Students pray the Morning Offering and the Angelus. Retreats are held at Holy Hill and Our Lady of Good Help
Unique Calling Each person has a unique and unrepeatable gift. Students are prepared for life which means finding their vocation and discerning their calling for their lives.
Building up the Kingdom of God … To use the skills they acquire at CA in faith, hope, and charity to build the Kingdom of God in this life and be with Him in everlasting happiness in the next.
Rome & Assisi
Chesterton Academy juniors and seniors have the opportunity for a pilgrimage to Rome and Assisi, Italy. They encounter relics from the saints and see in real life the wonders of the ancient churches in the Eternal City.
Chesterton Academy students join hundreds of thousands of peaceful protestors in Washington D.C. on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, giving a voice to the voiceless.
