High School Study and Success Skills(Entering 9th-12th grade)

The demands of a college preparatory high school can be very challenging to freshmen students who are learning about their new campus, meeting new people, and juggling demanding courses and extracurricular activities. But the challenge can be overcome. This summer session course offers students the tools they need to succeed. Students will acquire important skills including time management, library research, organization, note taking, listening, critical thinking and writing. They will also familiarize themselves with the Chaminade block schedule and campus. Organizational skills, test-taking and time management will also be examined in this fun and helpful course.  

  • Freshman Session 3 :July 22-26 M - F 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.


Health (Entering Grade 9)

The health curriculum focuses on teaching students to make quality decisions on matters relating to their mental, physical, social, spiritual, and emotional health. The class will include units on decision making, self-esteem, healthy relationships, mental health, exercise and fitness, nutrition, human sexuality, substance abuse, bullying, and infectious diseases. This class is taught from a Catholic perspective, keeping in the mind our Marianist philosophy. This course is a requirement for graduation from Chaminade for all students, beginning with the graduating Class of 2016. This graduation requirement is in addition to the two semester P.E. requirement. It cannot be waived by participation in a sport.

Prerequisite: None

Dates:  July 8 -  24 2019, M-F 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.


Introduction to Online Learning and Technology (previously called Online Comptuer Skills)


Students at Chaminade are introduced to the concept of online learning in this course. Since so many students today engage in distance education as part of their college career, this course introduces the student to important principles that will enable their success in this type of learning. Concepts like time management, netiquette and qualities of a successful online student are examined. The course then introduces the student to various aspects of online academic technologies that will assist them at their time here at Chaminade.  Components of Microsoft Word, Outlook and Power points are examined, as well the use of Office 365. The course then transitions to examining other online academic technologies used here at Chaminade. These skills include: navigating library databases, using online tools & websites, using Naviance (Chaminade’s counseling and college application program) as well as file management & backup techniques.


The final goal of the class is to put all of the skills together and be able to use these skills in real world situations. Since this is an online course, accountability and responsibility become very important. The class will be broken into five one-week-long modules that will have a certain number of assessments due at the end of every week. The modules start the Monday of every week and all assessments will be due by Sunday at 10pm. Students should make sure to give themselves enough time to complete all of the required assessments for that week, because any assignment not turned in for the module by midnight Sunday will be considered late and lose credit. Students will receive their Chaminade laptops during this class session (pending manufacturer delivery).


Dates:  July 8 – August 11


A MANDATORY ORIENTATION SESSION FOR THIS COURSE WILL BE HELD Monday July 8th from 8-10 a.m. OR 2:30 - 4:30 p.m. (For students remediating this class, this orientation session is not required)

Space in this class is limited.
