Return to School

Chaminade College Preparatory has actively planned for a return-to-school, as scheduled, for the Fall of 2020 in a Distance Learning model.  Moreover, we have committed extensive resources to the full development of a Hybrid model to permit the school to re-open when authorized by the LA County Health Department.  It is a courageous undertaking, relying on the collaborative efforts of our Marianist educators. In navigating the present challenges, we take heart in Fr. Chaminade’s encouraging words “to find peace, strength, and enthusiasm when multiplying our efforts.”
