Chaminade College Preparatory School, an independent, Catholic Day and Resident school, sponsored by the Marianist Province of the United States, is dedicated to cultivating the inherent gifts, skills and talents of young men so that they are prepared for success in college and life.

The success of the school can be attributed to the deep understanding of boys' education, and intentionally providing a school environment that is most conducive to boys' learning. Additionally, Chaminade has devoted resources to creating a college preparatory curriculum that allows students the opportunity think critically and to further understand the moral and ethical implications for modern life, so as to prepare them to enter the world with a heart for service and citizenship.

Chaminade's defining characteristic is the cultivation of family spirit. The House System and Campus Ministry programs purposefully create a sense of brotherhood among the student body. Likewise, there is a commitment by all faculty and staff to develop meaningful relationships with students. This devotion not only further enhances the student loyalty to the school, but also enhances academic achievement and success.

In an effort to prepare students for a changing world, Chaminade has a well-developed Global Reach program that integrates global citizenship and awareness into all aspects of the school experience. This includes a global resident facility, annual experiential education trips, and multiple international exchange programs.

Chaminade strives to provide a holistic, world class education grounded in faith that prepare its students to be the men the world needs them to be.
