Student Life


The House System

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 will eventually have two Senior and two Junior prefects, two faculty advisors, and several parent liaisons.

Student Life

Inspired by Pope Saint John Paul the Great, we take as our motto Cultura Vitae, the culture of life. Our mission is to prepare students to triumph over the materialism and despair that pervade our culture and to accept our Lord’s offer to have life and have it abundantly. We encourage athletics and extra-curricular activities as a way of fostering this fullness of life.
