The Green Bay Area Catholic Education (GRACE) school system will begin enrolling students for the 2021-2022 academic year starting on Jan. 31.

In addition to our nine preschool through eighth grade schools, GRACE will enroll students for the first time in Chesterton Academy of St. John Paul II Classical School, which opens in fall 2021. The academy debuts with ninth grade and will add one grade each year thereafter until graduating the first class of seniors in spring 2025.

Chesterton Academy will offer a classical liberal arts education with a deep regard for the development of Catholic virtues in its students, said Headmaster Patrick McKeown. The high school academy will be located at 320 Victoria St., Green Bay, in the St. Philip the Apostle campus building, which also houses St. John Paul II Classical School.

“At Chesterton Academy, we understand that students yearn for depth, not merely a career. With a richly cultivated soul, mind and imagination, students will joyfully go on mission to serve with purpose and zeal,” said Mr. McKeown, who also will handle some teaching duties at the high school level.

Chesterton Academy students receive a cohesive, content-rich education that provides broad exposure to numerous disciplines, from the humanities, math and science, to the fine arts. In addition to intellectual formation, spiritual and character formation are essential elements of the Chesterton Academy experience. Students participate in increased weekly sacraments, and faculty members take an Oath of Fidelity to the Magisterium.
