Welcome Message


Thank you for visiting our Chesterton Academy of Milwaukee website! This high school represents a grass-roots effort on the part of many parent and business volunteers to bring a Chesterton Academy Network School to the Greater Milwaukee area. Chesterton Academy of Milwaukee is an independent high school that will utilize the award-winning curriculum model of the founding Chesterton Academy in Edina, MN. Chesterton Academy was recognized by Cardinal Newman Society’s Catholic Education Honor Roll as a 2014 School of Excellence, an honor given to less than five percent of the Catholic high schools in the United States. Schools receiving this designation are marked by the integration of Catholic identity throughout all aspects of their programs and excellence in academics. In addition, our participation in the Network of Chesterton Academy schools allows for “best practice” in operational procedures. Greater Milwaukee benefits with a “new” school, yet with years of experience and tremendous success!

Chesterton Academy defines education in a much more comprehensive way than any other educational effort. This is because Chesterton Academy defines the human person in totality, as body and soul. The purpose of education therefore, begins with the end purpose in mind. Thus, the purpose is to impart truth and training for the complete person, to help one journey to salvation.

Chesterton Academy is a classical education taught in the tradition of the Catholic faith. It is an integrated, affordable option for high school. Chesterton Academy is not just job training, but an education of informing the intellect and training the will. Faith and reason meet in every class.

Thank you to all who recognize the mission and have been of great assistance. We invite you to sign up indicating your interest or write to us with questions. Further, we encourage you to spread the word and to offer your continued help in volunteering and financially supporting this critical mission. Please keep us in your prayers and know that you will remain in ours.

Our Lady of Good Help, Pray for Us.

“Education is simply the soul of society as it passes from one generation to another.” G.K. Chesterton
