  • Chaminade provides a modern, academically challenging curriculum using personalized instruction. Our classrooms, averaging 17 students, are student-centered and address multiple learning styles. The alternating block schedule allows for longer classroom experiences for debates, labs and deeper academic engagement.
  • The house system provides the natural framework by which leadership and family spirit come alive every day. Young men learn and grow by doing and Chaminade's many activities provide an outlet for every student. From Improv Club, to Marianist Life Community, drama productions and everything in between, there is truly a home at Chaminade for everyone.
