Chesterton once wrote about Christianity:

“The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”

For Chesterton Academy, we say: the classical model of education has not been tried and left wanting, it has been largely ignored and left unfunded!

It costs a lot of money to operate a school, whether public or private. If you care deeply about the Church, are concerned about the direction of society, and believe young people should be formed by the great minds and ideas of history, then perhaps our mission is also yours. We need your financial support.

Would you consider making a tax-deductible financial contribution to Chesterton Academy of the Willamette Valley? With your support (as either a one-time or sustaining donor), we can reach our fundraising goal and formally open our doors to the Valley youth.
