Chesterton Academy of St. Philip Neri

Faith-based • 9-12

Our Mission

Our goal is to form joyful, generous, faithful and confident Catholic leaders prepared for community life and mission in the modern world. Inspired by Saint Pope John Paul II, we take as our motto Cultura Vitae, the culture of life, as our students triumph over the materialism and despair that pervades our culture to have life and have it abundantly. We do this with a classical curriculum that combines a broad, liberal arts education with a strong emphasis on the development of Christian virtues and an appreciation of beauty.
