Scarlet, Blue and White
- Scarlet represents the blood of the martyrs and their courage in spreading the word of God throughout the world.
- Blue is the color of Our Lady.
- White stands for goodness, the totality of a world at peace that includes all colors, creeds, and races.
The three colors together represent the colors of the former schools.
Our teams carry two names, the Lions and the Lady Lions.
Ad Mundum Meliorem - Toward a Better World
The outermost circle contains the name of our school, Chaminade-Madonna College Preparatory, its geographic location of Hollywood, Florida. This is the result of the consolidation of the two schools founded individually in 1960. Blessed Father Chaminade, a French priest, founded the Marianists, and Madonna refers to Our Lady. In the center of the seal is a globe signifying the world in which we live. Within the globe is the letter “M” standing for Mary, the Madonna, who is the protectress of the Society of Mary. Radiating out from the globe are semicircular arrows reflecting our desire to share throughout the entire world the knowledge and love that Mary has for her son, Jesus. The school’s motto, Ad Mundum Meliorem, Latin for Toward a Better World, is engraved below the globe.
School Alma Mater
As Lions we roar so proud and strong.
And raise our voices in this our song.
Daughters of Madonna in white and blue,
Sing praise to Mary beautiful, good, and true.
The Sons of Chaminade in scarlet and blue,
Give laud to Your name, so holy are You.
Now scarlet, blue, and white are we,
Chaminade-Madonna we’ll always be.
Toward a Better World will ever be our goal,
In love, in truth, in heart, in soul.
Alma Mater hear our cry: Hail! Chaminade-Madonna on high!
