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 two Senior and two Junior prefects, two faculty advisors, and several parent liaisons.
Congratulations to the House of Athanasius!

Chesterton Academy’s full-time chaplain, Father Adam Tokashiki, PES leads the spiritual life of our school with help from other members of the Pro Ecclesia Sancta community. Students enjoy retreats, Adoration, formation classes, and ongoing opportunities for service.
We are also blessed by the support of Father Joseph Johnson, pastor of Church of the Holy Family in St. Louis Park, and Father John Paul Erickson, pastor of the Church of the Blessed Sacrament. Father Johnson and Father Erickson have a presence on campus and celebrate Mass for the students.
