Being required to take choir and drama was one of my best experiences at Chesterton. Before I came to Chesterton, I did not like singing or acting at all. Now, I love to sing and appreciate acting even more. This just shows that sometimes you have to be willing to try something even if you don’t like it at first.

It was on the Rome Pilgrimage, with my feet wearied from walking on cobblestones and my belly full of gelato, that everything clicked. It was crystal clear that my Catholicism was both an ancient faith of deep roots and a living faith; found in the reliquaries of saints and old breathtaking churches, now carried on by Papa Francesco AND myself.

Making the transfer from being homeschooled to going to an institutional school was a big step in my life freshman year. I was reluctant to accept the fact that I was going to Chesterton, but after I got to know my classmates I was able to truly embrace the school. I have learned so much, not just from the curriculum and the teachers, but also my wonderful classmates.

I met so many beautiful and amazing people who accepted the new girl into the school with open arms. The best way to describe Chesterton is as a family—everyone talks to everyone.

One of the most transforming moments at Chesterton was the pilgrimage to Rome. It was there that I really began to understand the beauty and importance of Catholic education. In Rome, I was able to experience the wonder of the Catholic culture and began to see it was something worth devoting a lifetime to.

We were all blessed to be part of this loving, spirited, and truth-seeking community. I am especially thankful for the marvelous pilgrimage to Rome, bringing together what we were taught in our integrated classes, from the arts to math to philosophy and theology. I wish everyone could have the chance to attend this joy-filled school.
