Mission

The Chesterton School of Liberal Arts is a state-of-the art classical school committed to serving families in Southern California. Our mission is train students to become scholars, professionals, and good citizens in our rapidly-changing society by teaching modern languages, professionalism, and the pursuit of intellectual and moral virtue.

Vision

Chesterton School of Liberal Arts is a state-of-the art classical school that equips a generation of young minds in Los Angeles county with the virtues, knowledge, and skills they need to guide society forward to the next frontier.

Philosophy

Our school aims at a mastery of great ideas of history, conversing in modern language, and preparation for the professional world. Our dedicated instructors foster a student-centered learning environment using the best of online and in-person education.

 

First, we take students on the journey through western civilization by canvassing distinguished thinkers such as Plato, Aristotle, St. Augustine, Dante, Dostoevsky, and C.S Lewis. Discussion of such works forms both thoughts and sentiments so that students come to love goodness, truth, and beauty.

Second, we master language through thorough understanding of English and a working knowledge of at least one foreign language, such as Mandarin, or Spanish. Students develop their critical thinking and persuasive expression by using precise words to express their clear thoughts.

Third, we launch students into college or career with the skills required in today’s global economy, including basic financial literacy, business etiquette, social networking, and apprenticeship opportunities. Upon graduation, students display excellence in active reading and listening, persuasive writing, eloquent speaking, mathematics, world languages, and business etiquette. Above all, students will pursue knowledge not only as a means to other ends but as an end in itself.

Our Budget

Our budget listed should help us move in the right direction as far as sustainability and growth. A large amount of the budget will go towards marketing, as it plays the most important role in gathering future students. Following that, our budget will focus potential scholarships for low income students as we believe everyone should have a chance at our education. The rest of the budget will focus on training, accreditation, and administration costs. Every donation moves us closer to launching the school by focusing on recruitment activities, community events, and allowing us to hire the highest quality staff.
