Why Donate?

By supporting Chesterton Academy of St. Louis, you will be helping to build a vibrant, joyful community where students can experience the joy of learning in a Christ-centered environment that pursues goodness, truth and beauty of a classical education.

We receive no operational funding from the government nor from the Archdiocese. We are completely independent and supported by parents and community members who believe in our mission.

Please join us!

Our Status

Chesterton Academy of St. Louis is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

We aim to keep tuition low to allow all families to attend. Tuition for the 2024-2025 school year is $8,400 per student, less than half the cost of nearby private schools. As a result of our low tuition, we must raise considerable funds to meet our operating budget since it costs far more than $8400 to educate our students. 

Our Need

We are committed to financial prudence and therefore need to raise 100% of the tuition gap (the difference between our annual budget and annual tuition revenue) by the end of our fiscal year, which is June 30, 2024.

The tuition gap for the 2024-2025 school year is $350,000. We need to raise $350,000 by June 30, 2024 to fund the school. This will help cover the faculty and staff salaries and new furniture and supplies as we expand to three grade levels.

That's a considerable amount, indeed, but we are confident there are enough people of good will who believe in the importance of our school and want to invest in something that produces real, lasting, tangible results: namely, young people who know Christ, love the Church, and radiate the genius of our Catholic tradition.

Our Stability

We have completed a detailed five-year financial plan to project our revenues, expenses, personnel, and fundraising needs over the next several years. We are confident in our financial stability, which will only become more solid each year as enrollment grows and the tuition gap decreases.
