General Information

List of 4 items.

  • Attendance

    Attendance in summer school courses is MANDATORY. Since classes are intensive, a semester consists of only 6 class meetings, and absences must only be for emergencies. Absences may result in the student being dropped from the course without credit or tuition refund. Tardiness will not be tolerated. Two unexcused class tardies will count as one full absence. Chaminade maintains a closed, secure campus at all times. No students may leave the campus during school hours for any reason without checking out through the office with a parent’s note. Students MAY NOT leave campus during class breaks.
  • Faculty

    Highly qualified teachers who are certified by Chaminade’s administration teach all courses. Whenever possible, members of Chaminade’s regular faculty are employed.
  • GPA Calculation

    If a student received a “D” or an “F” grade during the school year, the grade earned during Summer School WILL NOT REPLACE the “D” or “F” grade. For Chaminade students, Summer School grades will appear in addition to your original grade in your official transcript. Chaminade will use both of these grades in the calculation of your Chaminade GPA. Non-Chaminade students should contact their school administration regarding their policy on how classes at Chaminade will calculate in their GPA and whether or not the course and grade will appear on that school’s transcript. For further clarification, please contact the Guidance Office at 818.347.8300.
  • Grades and Transcripts

    Grades will be available via Netclassroom. For non-Chaminade students, an official transcript will be mailed to your high school on or about August 8. This transcript serves as proof of completion of credits toward graduation. For Chaminade students, summer grades are automatically entered into Chaminade transcripts. Please get in touch with the Chaminade Registrar at 818.347.8300 ext. 314 if an additional transcript is needed.

If you need to make changes to your registrations or information on forms already submitted, please email us at centerforexcellence@chaminade.org, as you are not able to change registration or edit a form yourself once it has been submitted. 

Changes to your registration can be made up to one week prior to the program/course start date, with a full refund of course fees by sending a written request to centerforexcellence@chaminade.org.

Cancellations with less than a week's notice will NOT be eligible for refunds, but fees paid may be applied towards future programming.
