Head of School Welcome

Welcome!  I am so glad you have discovered Chelsea Academy. Chelsea offers a challenging, personal, liberal arts education grounded in the Catholic faith for students in grades 4-12. We believe our students are capable of great things and consider it a privilege to prepare them “to go forth in the world boldly, confident in God’s love.”

Chelsea is at once a school, a community, and a family. Since our founding in 2007, we have been blessed with an extraordinarily gifted and dedicated faculty; vibrant families seeking a high-quality Catholic education for their children, and fun, thoughtful students ready to grow in their faith, build lasting friendships, and take on life’s challenges and opportunities with a spirit of adventure.

My husband, children, and I had the pleasure of being part of Chelsea when it first opened its doors with 37 students and six faculty members. We were inspired to join Chelsea because of the vision and “can-do” spirit of its founders, faculty, and families.  Since then, though the school has more than quadrupled in size, its mission has never wavered, and the need for Chelsea graduates ready to “set the world on fire” has never been more urgent. That can-do spirit is part of the Chelsea DNA. You will see it as our middle school students plunge into the chilly waters of White Oak Canyon on their fall hike, in our seniors as they present their senior theses, and in our alumni as they venture to foreign lands, start ventures close to home, and contribute their time, talent, and treasure to help more students receive a Chelsea education.

I hope you will enjoy the insights and information offered here in the website, and encourage you to contact our Director of Admissions and come see for yourself all that Chelsea has to offer.

All the best –

Bernardine Clark
