Chesterton Academy of Orlando

On Monday, January 9 at 8:00am ET, we will open our application window for new students at Chesterton Academy of Orlando!

At that time, you will be able to apply here:

We currently have 30 students enrolled at Chesterton Academy. For the 2023-2024 school year, we project to double in size, rising to 60 total students, which will give us three full sections: 20 ninth graders, 20 tenth graders, and 20 eleventh/twelfth graders.

This means we will be accepting 30 new students for the 2023-2024 school year (20 new freshmen, 4 new sophomores, and 6 new juniors).

We are capping the number of students we accept and we are confident the spots will fill up extremely fast. Admission will be on a first come, first serve basis, so we encourage you to apply as soon as possible after the application window opens.

Here are the items you will need for the online application. You might consider gathering them in advance, especially the short essay answers, so you can simply copy-and-paste them into the application window when it’s time:

  • Parents’ basic information (name, birthdate, address, email, etc.)
  • Student’s basic information (name, birthdate, address, etc.)
  • Short essay questions for student
    • Explain your reason(s) for attending the Chesterton Academy of Orlando.
    • List any academic and personal achievements you’ve made. Include awards you have received for your accomplishments.
    • What is your favorite academic subject and why?
    • What is your least favorite academic subject and why?
    • How would you best describe a good teacher?
    • What clubs, sports or extracurricular activities have you participated in? Be sure to include any awards or accomplishments tied to these activities.

    • List any behavioral or learning concerns you have for your child.
    • What are your child’s academic and personal strengths?
  • Student Records
    • Academic transcripts are required for any student transferring from another high school or coming from a public, private, or parochial middle school. The upload must include the student’s name, school, complete list of classes and grades, and overall grade point average (GPA) if provided by the school.
    • Should you not have academic transcripts (due to homeschooling or co-op) then please upload either standardized test scores (e.g., IOWA, TerraNova, Stanford 10) within the last 2 years, or homeschool portfolio assessment, as submitted to the state.
  • Payment method for $50 application fee

If you have any questions, please contact us here, although be aware that our staff is still on Christmas break this week so it might take a few days for a response.

Thanks, and God bless you!
