Student Life

The human person is more than just a brain, and for this reason Chesterton Academy of the Incarnation is more than just a school in the academic sense.

Learn about the extracurricular organization and activities available to our students below!

Catholic Identity


Catholicism is central to our mission. For this reason, every school day begins with Mass. We teach theology out of the Bible, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and papal documents. Other important ways we live the faith include annual pilgrimages and retreats, modest and wholesome extracurricular activities, and sacred art and crucifixes adorn the hall and the classrooms.


  • Each day begins with daily Mass
  • Faculty & Staff take Oath of Fidelity to Magisterium of the Catholic Church
  • Weekly opportunities for Adoration
  • Retreats, Confession, and Spiritual Formation
  • Faith incorporated into every subject
  • Chaplains or regular visits from priests and religious

House System


Chesterton Academy’s House system is drawn from the 1,000 year-old tradition of Christian education exemplified in the colleges at Oxford and Cambridge. The Houses provide real, tangible community within the larger school, giving students the opportunity to take ownership, fulfill the call to leadership, and to cultivate the ideal conditions for virtue. Each House has two Senior and two Junior prefects, two faculty advisors, and several parent liaisons.

Athletics & Clubs


Sports at Chesterton Academy of Incarnation works in partnership with parents and families. As a new school, we look forward to building an athletic program based on what our enrolled students and families want. CAI is a newly joined member of the TSIAA and is offering the following sports for 2023-2024 academic year as we begin to build an athletics program. Student participation in a sport every season is highly encouraged. Participation in one season of athletics fulfills CAI’s PE credit requirement.
