“I am excited to help grow and lead a school where the Catholic faith is an integral part of the community. The fact that Chesterton Academy of Atlanta seeks to begin each day with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass serves as a testament to the desire of maintaining an authentically Catholic environment for students to learn,” said Mr. Bettencourt. “Moreover, having the opportunity to lead young minds closer to Christ and see the beauty of the Catholic faith through their studies is what I feel called to do. As Headmaster, I look forward to ensuring that Chesterton Academy of Atlanta provides its students, faculty, staff, and families with an authentic Catholic environment where Christ is encountered daily.”
Mr. Bettencourt resides in the Atlanta area with his wife, Abby, and their three children, Francis, Patrick, and Mary Felicity. We look forward to welcoming Mr. Bettencourt and his family to our Chesterton school community!
