Chaminade College Preparatory School
St. Louis, Missouri
Located in beautiful St. Louis, Missouri, Chaminade is an all-boys Catholic high school that prides itself on its foundation of Catholic Marianist educational traditions and values, educating students for formation in faith, family spirit, service, justice and peace, and adaptation and change, while providing an integral and quality education. Chaminade students are prepared for success in college and life, and ultimately become the men the world needs them to be.
Long-standing traditions have contributed to the continuation of this schools mission and identity. Throughout the school’s history, they have enjoyed a close association with the Society of Mary and their identity has been enhanced by the constant presence of Marianist priests and brothers serving as administrators, faculty, and staff.
Special emphasis is given to educate students to read and think critically in order to write and communicate effectively and help them prepare for their future by developing the necessary research skills, formal and creative writing skills and analytical skills.
Chaminade strives to be innovative in its educational efforts and sensitive to the needs of all of our students. This can be seen in the development of their laptop program which allows them to use the latest educational technology to enhance the classroom learning experience. Teachers use various methodologies and pedagogies to present the curriculum including powerpoint presentations, videos, group discussion, guest speakers, field trips, lab-oriented experiments and interdisciplinary methods to meet different learning styles in the classroom. For those students needing extra help, teachers often provide one-on-one tutoring opportunities before and after school and facilitate peer tutoring by advanced-level students.
