To that end we seek to form our students:
intellectually, by teaching them not only the great classics of Western thought from Plato to calculus, but the interrelationship of the great ideas, to learn not 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 in professional life, the family, the nation, and in the service of Christ; and spiritually, so that they may 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.”
