At this time last year, Brad Kaaya was preparing for his senior season at quarterback for West Hills Chaminade. Now, he has been named the starting quarterback as a freshman at Miami.

Coach Al Golden made the announcement Sunday, with Kaaya beating out Kansas transfer Jake Heaps, who was once ranked the No. 1 high school quarterback prospect in the nation.

“As I told him, he’s our quarterback,” Golden told reporters Sunday afternoon after practice, a few hours after informing Kaaya and Heaps of the decision. “He’s not a freshman quarterback. He’s the University of Miami quarterback.”

Are you ready for the 2014-2015 school year? It’s hard to believe, but a new school year is here, and as I begin my first year as your president, I want you to know, it truly is great to be an Eagle.

Over the past week I have had the opportunity to do what I love most about working at Chaminade – spend time with our faculty and students. It is wonderful to see everyone energized and excited about our school. This year, we are welcoming 315 new families, along with 29 new employees to Chaminade.

Before teachers and students returned, we spent our summer months getting ready for this school year, and began several construction projects on our Chatsworth campus. The library expansion project and new classroom buildings are well underway, and are on schedule to be completed in 2015. Our parking lot addition and center courtyard renovation are completed and ready.

I can’t wait to see our students’ academic endeavors, their creative journeys, athletic competitions, and the spiritual growth. With 2,044 students on campus, we will have plenty of news to share, and the best way to stay informed is to:

As a 15-year Chaminade employee and the dad of two Eagles, I know many of you already, and I look forward to getting to know the rest of you. To facilitate this, I keep office hours at both our Chatsworth and West Hills campuses. Please feel free to make an appointment, or stop me if you see me on campus, at a game, or at any Chaminade event.

Blessings to you and your family as we embark on our 2014-2015 school year together!

Chaminade Family Raises $1.2 Million

Thank you Postcard2014In a year when Chaminade bid farewell to its 18-year President Jim Adams, the school also celebrated a national speaking championship, robotics awards, four state athletic championships, another successful college placement year, and a banner year in annual giving. The 2013-2014 Chaminade Fund closed the year having raised $1.2 million – funds that are directly invested in students and faculty.

The annual fund raising effort is truly a Chaminade family achievement – 1,325 donors contributed to The Chaminade Fund. Gifts ranged in size from $1 to $75,000. Every single gift, from every single donor makes a difference in the Chaminade experience.

Chaminade College Preparatory thanks all of its generous supporters.
