Preparing Students for College and for Life
As part of Chesterton Academy’s guidance counseling program, our staff coordinates college visits to the Chesterton Academy campus, facilitates student visits to local college fairs, and provides introductions to religious orders and communities around the world. Chesterton Academy uses Naviance as a tool for parents and students during their college search process.
