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. Students may also earn AP credit from a full range of advanced, AP-aligned courses. In the junior and senior years, qualified students are able to earn college credits through the 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 students are engaged in one or more school activities, and more than 50% participate on interscholastic athletic teams.
All Chaminade students study in the school’s new Dolan Family Science, Technology, and Research Center – a state-of-the-art hub for the exploration of the applied sciences, which opened in 2018. An Olympic-size indoor swimming pool, physical fitness center, and day retreat center are also found on campus. Marianist brothers and faculty also lead retreats for students at the Meribah retreat house in Muttontown and Founder’s Hollow, a 200-acre retreat facility in upstate New York. Students may participate in these retreats 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.
