East Metro Campus Announcement
February 2, 2017
Feast of the Presentation of the Lord
We are pleased to announce that after much prayer and preparation, and with the full support of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, the Chesterton Academy Board has decided to open the school’s first additional campus, which will serve families in the East Metro area.
The campus will open in the Fall of 2017 with an expected enrollment of 25 students in grades 9 through 11. The East Metro campus will be located for its first two years at Church of the Blessed Sacrament in East St. Paul, with the support of parish pastor Father John Paul Erickson. The East Metro Campus will deliver the same Chesterton Academy curriculum and formation as offered at the West Metro (Edina) campus, at the same tuition rate. Click here for answers to frequently asked questions about the new campus.
Chesterton Academy will work with the Archdiocese to identify a suitable long-term campus location that combines modest yet expanded amenities, ease of access for families and students, and nearby facilities for daily Mass.
We are very grateful to the many dedicated pioneer families who worked tirelessly to promote the possibility of an East Metro campus. We look forward to working closely with these committed families to raise the additional operating and scholarship funds required for the 2017-18 academic year.
We are delighted for this opportunity to help expand the available high school options for families in the Twin Cities metro. Together with the other outstanding high schools in our Archdiocese, we are committed to increasing the total number of high school students enrolled in Catholic schools – and forming more students who will bring the light of Christ to others and serve their families, our community, and Christ Our Lord.
Join us for a Campus Kick-Off Meeting. Interested East Metro parents are invited to attend a kick-off meeting at Church of the Blessed Sacrament (located at 2119 Stillwater Ave E, St Paul, MN 55119) on February 27 at 7PM to meet faculty members and Headmaster Dave Beskar, and to learn more about the curriculum and vision for the East Metro campus.
