Mission Statement

Chesterton Academy of The Holy Family is a private high school guided by the Truths of the Catholic Faith and loyal to the Magisterium. Its goal is to provide an affordable classical curriculum steeped in tradition, and augmented by the Socratic Method in order to cultivate its students both spiritually and academically. As a school, it will reinforce the role of parents as primary educators of their children and promote the importance of the family as the basic building block of a civilized society. Faith and reason will be interwoven in every class and joy shall be present from the entrance hymn of the daily Mass to the closing bell of the school day for the greater glory of God.

The Mission of Chesterton Academy of The Holy Family

Chesterton Academy of The Holy Families mission is to raise up a generation of joyful leaders and saints, educated in the classical tradition and the truths of the Catholic faith, abounding in the skills and character requisite for success in college and professional life, and to excel in service of family, of country, and of Christ our Lord.

To that end we seek to form our students:

intellectually, by teaching them not only the great classics of Western thought from philosophy to physics, but the interrelationship of the great ideas, to learn not merely what to think but how to think;

in character, especially in the four cardinal virtues of Prudence, Temperance, Fortitude and Justice which we believe are the foundations of leadership;

and spiritually, to use the skills they acquire at Chesterton Academy in Faith, Hope, and Charity to build up the Kingdom of God in this life and be with Him in everlasting happiness in the next.

In the words of G.K. Chesterton, we seek to teach our students that “there is a whole truth of things and that in knowing and speaking it we are happy.”
