Chesterton Academy Student Speaks to School Experience

Chesterton Academy of St. John Paul II Classical School welcomed our first class of ninth-grade students back in the autumn of 2021. Every year thereafter, we have added one grade level until we will celebrate their very first group of graduating seniors in spring 2025!

We embrace their motto Cultura Vitae, the culture of life. In this way, we heed Christ’s call to have our fullest life in Him. This intentional joy for life and learning is imbued in our classical curriculum with a strong emphasis on the development of Christian virtues and an appreciation of beauty.

New Chesterton Academy student Grace agrees, and recently shared the following about her experience at our school:

“Chesterton Academy has done so much in my life. I just started at this school and I have already seen so many changes in my own life. I have been pushed to learn more about my faith and who I am as a child of God. I am lucky enough to be able to include God in everything I do throughout every day at school and we always make sure that God is never put second.

Our daily routine, which consists of going to daily mass and praying before every class, has helped me to grow into a deeper relationship with Christ. I can also say that between the teachers who truly care about every student and the friends who never [exclude] anyone, the people at this school are truly amazing. I would honestly, with my whole heart, recommend this school to anyone who asks. The people that I am now surrounding myself with are not just looked at as just a group of friends, but they have become a family.

When I go to Chesterton Academy, I feel like I am where I’m meant to be. I genuinely love my school.”

We are so happy Grace is loving her experience at Chesterton Academy thus far. Many pleasant memories are yet to be made!
