The Chesterton Academy of Steubenville Catholic Central High School, started in 2018, is a member of the Chesterton Schools 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. Classical education exposes young people to the best of Western Civilization founded on Judeo-Christian beliefs and practices, as they study theology, philosophy, literature, history, Latin, math, science, and the fine arts.
Teaching and learning at the Chesterton Academy of Steubenville Catholic Central High School are rooted in the Catholic intellectual and moral traditions and in the patterns of the seven liberal arts of the Trivium (grammar, logic, rhetoric) and Quadrivium (mathematics, geometry, music, astronomy/natural science). Students follow a highly integrated curriculum which focuses on a specific historical period for each class year and pervasively orients them toward the cardinal and theological virtues. Subjects such as Latin, music, and theology are part of every student’s academic and personal formation, as are drawing and physical education. Instruction is both mimetic and Socratic, with an emphasis on the primary sources and original writings rather than summaries or textbooks. Our academic goal is to assist families in equipping their children with the type of education that gave rise to the best aspects of Western Civilization.
