Hallmarks of a Chesterton Education
An Incarnational Environment
From history and theology to math and science, the Incarnation is the central mystery we explore across the entire curriculum. It is our desire that each student would personally experience the Incarnation.
A Focus on Truth, Goodness, and Beauty
Our classical curriculum combines a broad, liberal arts education with a strong emphasis on the development of Christian virtues and an appreciation of beauty.
A Joyful Learning Environment
We create environments where students experience the joy of community and the discovery process, providing them with an opportunity to live out their spiritual life in an atmosphere of joy and fun.
Rediscovering the Lost Tools of Learning
Our curriculum is centered on skills seemingly forgotten in our modern society – reading, writing, oral presentations, and the development of critical reasoning skills through logic and philosophy.
The Socratic Seminar
The Socratic seminar is perhaps the oldest educational tool. Through this method, a teacher imparts knowledge through directed questions and guided dialogue, bringing ideas and knowledge to life.
The Wit and Wisdom of G.K. Chesterton
Chesterton exemplified the Catholic faith through his wit, his clarity, his kindness, and his ability to love people with whom he disagreed, while sharing the faith in Christian charity.
