Leadership

Welcome to Chaminade-Madonna College Preparatory!

Dr. Judith Mucheck
Since 1960 we have been educating young people under the tutelage of the Society of Mary. How do we take the message of our founders and transform it into languages and experiences that will be relatable, transferrable and transformative for our young people?

We do it by focusing on four important tenets – first, we are Marianist. Our mission is derived from our religious community and our obligation is to work toward a better world.
Second, we practice radical hospitality. Our standard for respect between the adults and young people, and young people together, is reflected in a shared life. We take time to listen.
 
Third, we are intentionally diverse. We look like South Florida - you name it, we have it and it is a wonderful thing that makes us very rich.
 
Finally, we are in relentless pursuit of 21st century education. We have no interest in replicating a body of knowledge that speaks of a previous time. History has its place but in reality we are educating first graders for occupations which don’t yet exist. Our explicit curriculum focuses on problem-solving, critical thinking, and yes, solving the quadratic equation and being able to write a well-formed research paper still count. The Chaminade-Madonna community is in relentless pursuit of 21st century education in all its forms. But we aren’t only about training the mind – we believe in the value of teamwork and shared success. Over 80% of our students are involved in an extra-curricular program of some kind.
 
I invite you to schedule a visit and tour our campus. It is here that we work "Toward a Better World.”
