House System


Chesterton Academy’s House system is drawn from the 1,000 year-old tradition of Christian education exemplified in the colleges at Oxford and Cambridge. The Houses provide real, tangible community within the larger school, giving students the opportunity to take ownership, fulfill the call to leadership, and to cultivate the ideal conditions for virtue. Each House has a senior and junior prefect and a faculty advisor.

Spirituality


Opening Mass.jpeg
  • Daily Mass The Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life." For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself, our Pasch. CCC 1324 For this reason, every school day begins with Mass.

  • Faith at the Center The faith is the central reality from which all academic disciplines flow and derive their meaning. Faith is at the core of our academic program. All subjects we teach through lens of the Church. This makes our school unique. Religion at CA is not merely one academic subject among many.

  • Retreats and Prayer Students pray the Morning Offering and the Angelus. Retreats are held at Holy Hill and Our Lady of Good Help

  • Unique Calling Each person has a unique and unrepeatable gift. Students are prepared for life which means finding their vocation and discerning their calling for their lives.

  • Building up the Kingdom of God … To use the skills they acquire at CA in faith, hope, and charity to build the Kingdom of God in this life and be with Him in everlasting happiness in the next.

 There is a whole truth of things and in knowing and speaking it we are happy.
— G.K. Chesterton

College Admissions Testing

We provide information to our students on the PSAT, SAT, ACT and the new CLT (Classic Learning Test).  Chesterton Academy of Milwaukeee is an official testing site for the CLT.  The Classical Learning Test (CLT) is an alternative to the SAT and ACT college admissions tests and is accepted by a growing number of excellent colleges and universities. While the SAT and ACT have been brought into alignment with Common Core standards, the CLT assesses students’ verbal reasoning, grammar/writing, and quantitative reasoning skills drawing from the works of the greatest minds in the history of Western thought. The CLT is endorsed by the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, the Association of Classical Christian Schools, Home School Legal Defense Association, The National Home Education Research Institute, and others. Learn more here.
