Chesterton Schools rising

In 2008, Dale Ahlquist and Tom Bengston opened the first Chesterton Academy, a high school providing a classical education with English Catholic convert and writer G.K. Chesterton as its patron, in Edina, Minnesota. Now, there are 27 schools in operation in the United States and Canada, a sister school in Italy, and nearly a dozen slated to open in the next two years.
