Chesterton Schools Network and Christendom College Announce New Exclusive Four-Year Scholarship for Seniors

October 12, 2022

The Chesterton Schools Network (CSN) and Christendom College recently announced an exclusive scholarship opportunity for seniors of any Chesterton Academy, including St. Ignatius Chesterton Academy in Kaukauna.

St. Ignatius Chesterton Academy seniors will automatically qualify for a $10,000 scholarship upon acceptance at Christendom College. The four-year renewable college scholarship is offered at the rate of $2,500 a year and in addition to any other merit and need-based financial aid students may earn to attend Christendom College.

Christendom College is a four-year coeducational Roman Catholic liberal arts college in Front Royal, Virginia, known for its rigorous Catholic liberal arts education and vibrant Catholic culture. By partnering with CSN to offer this exclusive scholarship opportunityto Chesterton Academy seniors, Christendom College seeks to offer students the opportunity to build upon the Catholic classical educational foundation of their high school years, as they seek to learn the Truth, live the faith, and thrive in college years at Christendom College and beyond.

In addition to the exclusive scholarship opportunity for Chesterton Academy seniors, Chesterton Academy juniors qualify for 50% off Christendom College’s highly ranked Best Week Ever college summer program.

Exclusive academic credit, partnership, and scholarship opportunities continue to expand for Chesterton Academy students with the announcement of this Christendom College exclusive scholarship. Earlier this year, Franciscan University of Steubenville and the CSN introduced Franciscan Advantage, a first-of-its-kind collaboration that allows current Chesterton Academy students to concurrently enroll in designated theology and philosophy courses in high school and earn college credit by successfully completing complementary college-level examinations from Franciscan University.

By forming exclusive partnerships with mission-aligned, authentically Catholic colleges, St. Ignatius Chesterton Academy and other CSN schools continue to serve the intellectual and spiritual needs of students, families, and communities while simultaneously ensuring ongoing access to affordable Catholic education.

St. Ignatius Chesterton Academy, which serves students grade 9 through grade 12, opened in fall 2021 in Kaukauna and graduated its inaugural class in May 2022. As the only Catholic classical high school in the Fox Valley and a member of the international CSN, St. Ignatius Chesterton Academy offers a high quality classical curriculum taught through the lens of the Catholic faith. The high school was an expansion to the existing St. Ignatius Catholic School – the region’s only Catholic classical school – which serves students 3K through grade 8 in Kaukauna.
