The mission of the Chesterton Academy of Annapolis is to raise up a generation of joyful leaders and saints, educated in the classical tradition and the truths of the Catholic faith, abounding in the skills and character requisite for success in college and professional life, and to excel in service of family, of country, and of Christ our Lord.

The Three Pillars that we will seek to form our students will be:

intellectually, by teaching them not only the great classics of Western thought from philosophy to physics, but the interrelationship of the great ideas, to teach them not merely what to think but how to think;

in character, especially in the four cardinal virtues of Prudence, Temperance, Fortitude and Justice, which we believe are the foundation of leadership;

and spiritually, to use the skills they acquire at Chesterton Academy in Faith, Hope, and Charity to build up the Kingdom of God in this life and be with Him in everlasting happiness in the next.

In the words of G.K. Chesterton, we seek to teach our students that “there is a whole truth of things and that in knowing and speaking it we are happy.”
