Since its foundation by the Marianist brothers in 1930, Chaminade High School has achieved a reputation for excellence in educating the Catholic young men of Long Island. Students at Chaminade study a college preparatory, liberal arts curriculum in an atmosphere that emphasizes the development of Christian community and education of the heart. Chaminade’s goal is to foster the development of well-rounded, faith-filled Catholic men.
All Chaminade students follow a rigorous academic program requiring students to take four years of religion, English, social studies, foreign language (Chinese, French, Latin or Spanish), mathematics, science, and physical education, as well as three years of fine arts and one year of health. In the junior and senior year, qualified students are able to earn college credits through St. John’s University College Advantage Program. Chaminade graduates are fully prepared for the most demanding of college curricula and each year 100% of the graduates go on to colleges, universities, military academies, and prep schools.
Chaminade’s academic program is supplemented by an extensive program of apostolic, co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities, as well as intramural and interscholastic sports. More than 90% of the students are engaged in one or more school activities and more than 50% participate on interscholastic athletic teams.
Chaminade facilities include an Olympic-size indoor swimming pool, a state of the art physical fitness center, a retreat house named Meribah which is on 15 acres in Muttontown, and Saragossa Retreat Center on campus for day retreats. In addition, Founder’s Hollow, a 200-acre retreat facility in upstate New York, is utilized by Chaminade students. Students are able to attend optional retreats, conducted by the Marianist brothers and faculty without charge, on weekends and during the week.
Priority of admission is given to young men who are baptized and practicing members of the Roman Catholic Church.
