    We chose Chaminade College Preparatory School for our children, because of it's well rounded curriculum, focus on character education/values, diverse extracurricular opportunities, athletic programs, amazing teachers and principal! Our family has felt connected to the school since our younger son set foot on campus 3 years ago. There is a sense of warmth and community, that you do not find at every school. Additionally, Chamiande fosters academic, social and emotional growth, and identifies each student's individual needs. We absolutely love Chaminade and all it has to offer!

    Chaminade College Preparatory offers an exceptional variety of sports, clubs, leadership programs, and many other extra-curricular activities, so all students at Chaminade find what they are passionate about! Also, Chaminade is a step up from most other high schools because of its desire to make every student's Chaminade experience wonderful. The equipment used in their drama program is better than some colleges, which does their students a huge favor, once they enter college, as they already know how everything works and how things should look like.
    One aspect of Chaminade that sticks out to me is that most people who attend are welcoming to all others. There is always someone for you at Chaminade, whether you are into robotics, art, sports, or even film. The school is also strong academically. The first couple years prioritize general education classes to help students learn about different majors and fields, and in the junior and senior years, the student has a more flexible schedule so that they could further explore areas of interest as opposed to sticking to a rigid class schedule. Additionally, each student takes 7 classes, but they are split up into 2 days. Sometimes, the classes feel long, but most of the time, the hour and a half long classes allow for students to be able to focus on their classwork or lectures without having to break their focus every 45 minutes. Overall, Chaminade is a great school because of their welcoming towards others, their strong academic system, and the skills that they develop in students.
