Welcome Letter from the President

Fortes in Unitate, Latin for Strength in Unity, is more than just the Chaminade High School motto. It is a mission – a mission to provide the best Catholic education for young men on Long Island that emphasizes community and education of the heart. Our teachers live the mission. Our students experience Chaminade with the mission in their hearts. They grow together as men of faith and fortitude to lead lives as exemplary brothers, fathers, husbands, and citizens.

Every person of the Chaminade Family is part of that mission. Students, parents, faculty, staff, alumni, and alumni parents comprise that family – a network energized by faith, supporting its members to strive for success. We are One Body in Christ, and we work to honor that distinction through rigorous academic studies and service to our neighbors.

The Chaminade program advances the mission with the latest technology available. Our co-curricular and extra-curricular activities bring classroom lessons to life. Athletic teams bond under their common goals. They are built on a foundation poured by the Chaminade Family, and encouraged by its belief of Strength in Unity.

Our mission is made only stronger by you. We invite you to be a part of it! Join us as we seek to share with our young men with the Strength in Unity of their Chaminade journey. It continues long after their graduation from our school.


Bro. Thomas J. Cleary, S.M. ’81
