In our classrooms and across our campus:
A liberal arts approach to learning is the foundation of our curriculum. Our daily schedule of 75 minute classes that rotate over 2 days provides opportunities for in-depth exploration of literature, mathematics, science experimentation, or participation in the arts. The student load of coursework includes a total of seven credits for one academic year. See our 2020-2021 Curriculum Guide for a listing of all courses available at Chaminade-Madonna.
Our teachers approach planning in a holistic manner, using a backward-design model. This method targets critical thinking and problem-solving in all academic disciplines. Students are given a variety of opportunities to demonstrate mastery of learning which go well-beyond traditional written tests and quizzes.
