St. Ignatius Chesterton Academy, which serves more than 40 students grade 9 through grade 12, opened in fall 2021 in Kaukauna.

The class of 2024 is the high school’s third graduating class. As the only Catholic classical high school in the Fox Valley and a member of the international Chesterton Schools Network, St. Ignatius Chesterton Academy offers a rigorous classical curriculum taught through the lens of the Catholic faith.

The high school was an expansion to the existing St. Ignatius Catholic School–the Fox Valley’s only Catholic classical school–which serves students 3K through grade 8 in Kaukauna.
