From Chaminade Madonna College Preparatory School

How do we take the message of our founders and transform it into languages and experiences that will be relatable and transformative for our young people?

We do it by focusing on four important tenets – first, we are Marianist. Our mission is derived from our religious community and our obligation is to work toward a better world.

Second, we practice radical hospitality. Our standard for respect between the adults and young people, and young people together, is reflected in a shared life.

Third, we are intentionally diverse. We look like South Florida - you name it, we have it and it is a wonderful thing that makes us very rich.

Finally, we are in relentless pursuit of 21st century education. Our explicit curriculum focuses on problem-solving, critical thinking. But we aren’t only about training the mind – we believe in the value of teamwork and shared success. Over 80% of our students are involved in an extra-curricular program.

    My experience at Chaminade Madonna has been beyond amazing! I attended CM my freshman and sophomore year. For my junior year I decided to transfer to another school for athletic reasons. I had a great time at my other high school, but it wasn't Chaminade. By attending two different schools I was able to compare the two and realized that Chaminade was my home. I decided to transfer back my senior year because I knew that was where I belonged and wanted to graduate from. The teachers, students, faculty, and staff make the environment there amazing. Everyone, whether or not you attend the school, are welcomed with open arms and warm smile. There just aren't enough words to describe how amazing the school is. I know that when I have kids and if I live in south florida, I will send my kids to Chaminade Madonna College Preparatory.

    I am now a senior at Chaminade Madonna and so far the years that I have spent there have been amazing and I have made memories that I will cherish forever. Chaminade is a very small high school, but that’s what I truly love about it. The school consists of around 500 students and to me, it feels like a family. Everyone knows each other and the environment is very safe and welcoming. It’s evident that the faculty and staff really care about each of their students.
    I absolutely loved my time at Chaminade Madonna! The school is so small, so it really gives you a chance to make friends not only with your peers, but also with your teachers as well. The teachers really do care about the students, and I have had plenty of times where they have stayed after school to help me excel. I can safely say that CM prepared me well for college, and I am very thankful to have gone here.
