Do you offer supervision programs before and after school?
The school library is open each morning at 7:00 a.m. and closes at 6:00 p.m. There is supervision in the library before school and after school at no additional cost.

Is there a school lunch program?
Our school cafeteria provides lunch each day for students that desire to buy lunch. They make the food fresh each day and work with students who may have special dietary restrictions or allergies. Parents charge their children’s Eagle Cards from home, and students use this card to buy their lunch. It is not a requirement.

Does Chaminade offer bus transportation?
Students come from all over the greater Los Angeles area. Therefore, to help accommodate families that do not live in the neighborhood, we have buses that come from the East Valley, Santa Clarita, Conejo Valley, and more. For more information on our bus transportation routes, see the Transportation page of our website.

What are the expectations of my child by participating in a Marianist Catholic school?
Students will attend 1-2 liturgical celebrations in a month, take a religion class, perform Apostolic Works (community service) and attend one grade-level retreat per year. We are religiously diverse and appreciate all of our students and meet them on their faith journey, wherever they may be.
