Education or Indoctrination? Pursuit of Truth VIII A

Chesterton Academy[1]

The Three Pillars

Inspired by Saint Pope John Paul II, we take as our motto  the culture of life. We make it our mission to prepare our students to triumph over the materialism and despair that pervade our culture and to accept our Lord’s offer to have life and have it abundantly. Our classical curriculum combines a broad, liberal arts education with a strong emphasis on the development of Christian virtues and an appreciation of beauty. Through our Three Pillars Model, we form our students in: Intellect, character, spirituality.

Tuition & Fees

We believe every Catholic family should have the choice to send their children to a Catholic school that prepares students for college and for life. Although the Academy is approaching $13,000 per-pupil cost, tuition is among the lowest in the area at $8,500.

Because tuition does not cover the full $13,000 cost of an education at Chesterton, families are expected to aid in fundraising and recruiting efforts throughout the school year.

For large families, prohibitive.

XII. Home Schooling (Sara & I spoke at length in prior shows)

XIII. Public Schools (esp rural) & Charter Schools, Great Hearts (TX experience)

Merry Christmas is staying, not Happy Holidays. Parents, teachers, principal united in common thoughts.

At a crisis point of education. Medical, police force used to be run by Church or faithful men of the Church. Church is the true educator. Surrendered so much territory to a secular atheistic structure. Conventionalism is always hated by left until they establish their establishment.

Indoctrination convention is now guarded. Saw early stages reduce, reuse, recycle mantra. Outing the parents. Education wedge between home & school suspect. Parents of children must educate themselves so they can educate their children. Educate oneself so as to teach the children. No one do it. Education is hard immense effort, indoctrination is easy.
