Proud to be a part of the Chesterton Schools Network

“A dead thing can go with the stream, but only a living thing can go against it.” G.K. Chesterton

The Chesterton Academy of Omaha is a member of the Chesterton Schools Network, a network of classical academy high schools across the country which offers young people and their parents a Catholic classical curriculum taught by faithful faculty in a joyful, engaging environment which promotes goodness, beauty, and truth.

An Incarnational Environment

From history and theology to math and science, the Incarnation is the central mystery we explore across the entire curriculum. It is our desire that each student would personally experience the Incarnation.

A Focus on Truth, Goodness, and Beauty

Our classical curriculum combines a broad, liberal arts education with a strong emphasis on the development of Christian virtues and an appreciation of beauty.

A Joyful Learning Environment

We create environments where students experience the joy of community and the discovery process, providing them with an opportunity to live out their spiritual life in an atmosphere of joy and fun.

Rediscovering the Lost Tools of Learning

Our curriculum is centered on skills seemingly forgotten in our modern society: reading, writing, oral presentations, and the development of critical reasoning skills through logic and philosophy.

The Socratic Seminar

The Socratic seminar is perhaps the oldest educational tool. Through this method, a teacher imparts knowledge through directed questions and guided dialogue, bringing ideas and knowledge to life.

The Wit and Wisdom of G.K. Chesterton

Chesterton exemplified the Catholic faith through his wit, his clarity, his kindness, and his ability to love people with whom he disagreed, while sharing the faith in Christian charity.
