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!
