Our School and Students by the Numbers
“A dead thing goes with the stream. Only a living thing can go against it.” - G.K. Chesterton
Chesterton Academy of Buffalo
Celebrating our 6th year of operation.
Affordable tuition of $6,925 per student for the 2019-2020 academic year.
Our past graduates enrolled in early childhood education, nursing, engineering, hospitality, writing, music performance, chiropractic training, liberal arts, game design and one student enrolled in the minor-seminary program for the Diocese of Buffalo.
Chesterton graduates have been accepted to Mercyhurst University; LeMoyne University; Franciscan University; Gannon University; Ave Maria University; Christendom College; Clarkson University; Rochester Institute of Technology; St. John Fisher College; Siena College (3+1 Accelerated Accounting Program); John Carroll University (Boler School of Business); Daemen College (Physician’s Assistant and Physical Therapy programs); University of Buffalo; Medaille College, Canisius College; Niagara University; Hilbert College, The University of Notre Dam, and more.
Students who have applied to four-year colleges have been awarded presidential/dean/merit scholarships totaling over $1,000,000. 1/4 of those students have been invited to compete for higher-level scholarships within those schools.
All students who participated in the SAT surpassed the benchmark scores for Evidence-Based Writing (as expected with a classical, humanities-based education); 1/2 of these students scored 650 or higher out of a potential 800 points. The majority of students met the benchmark in Math.
Students participated in the March for Life; faculty members gave of their own time and money to chaperone; parents also joined our school to stand for Life.
Several students are actively discerning religious vocations.
