Annapolis, MD


The mission of The Chesterton Academy of Annapolis is to help parents raise up a generation of joyful leaders and saints, educated in the classical tradition and the truths of the Catholic faith.

Chesterton Academy of Annapolis is a classical high school in the Catholic tradition and a member of Chesterton Schools Network. The network schools are part of an educational movement reintroducing the classical, Catholic liberal arts tradition. At Chesterton Academy, faith is understood not as one subject among many, but as the essential truth from which all academic disciplines flow and derive their meaning. An integrated classical education richly benefits students. It enhances retention, the love of learning, and facilitates multi-disciplinary connections. Students learn to think deeply and communicate logically and persuasively. The greatest benefit of classical education, however, is that it teaches students how to live. It forms students to embrace the true, the good and the beautiful in “crafting their own life,” as St. John Paul II says, “to make of it a work of art, a masterpiece.” Chesterton Academy of Annapolis opened in 2018.
