Center for Excellence Registration is Open

Registration for Chaminade College Preparatory’s Center for Excellence (CCE) is now open. It is the perfect place for students to spend their summer learning and growing. With classes in the morning and afternoon, CCE offers programs, for students entering grades 1-12, designed to inspire, engage, and empower young minds.

Students entering grades 1 through 12 will enjoy expanding their horizons through the Center for Excellence summer programming. For students entering Chaminade’s 6th grade, Eagles Take Flight will prepare them academically and introduce them to Chaminade’s middle school community; while students entering high school grades can acquire valuable skills in High School Study and Success Skills, and students entering 12th grade can prepare for college applications in the College Application Bootcamp. CCE also offers robotics programs on both campuses with a brand-new class on the West Hills campus focusing on electronics and programming.

This year, CCEs summer Ste[+a]m Academy, for grades K-5, will once again be powered by STEMscopes. With a different curriculum each week, there is no repetition. Each STEMscope module engages students in cross-disciplinary activities that build knowledge and skills in areas including computer science, engineering, and biomedical science. Students can come for one week, or all five weeks.

The Great Books Academy, for grades K-5, is one of CCEs most popular programs aimed at educating the whole child. The Great Books curriculum is the cornerstone of the academy and is specially designed to help students become independent readers and thinkers by focusing on reading comprehension, critical thinking, vocabulary, and writing.

Summer is also an excellent time for students of all ages to pursue their creative passions in visual and performing arts. And children ages 5 to 15 can join CCEs Sports Camps and explore athletics from football to basketball as well as soccer, baseball, volleyball, fencing, and more. The West Hills campus also hosts Varsity Camps, which gives students the chance to work with Chaminade’s varsity head coaches, players, and former athletes with college and professional experience.

Chaminade Fencing Captures State Title

By David Wharton P ’19

After near-misses the past two seasons, the Chaminade men’s fencing team captured the state title at the 2018 California high school championships, edging out rival Harvard-Westlake and Brentwood on Sunday.

The women’s squad put up a valiant fight, finishing a close second after the points were tabulated.

The results capped a successful rebuilding effort by Coach Derek Snyder, who lost a corps of veteran athletes after the 2016 season and had to start over with a roster of underclassmen.

On the men’s side, junior Zachary Wharton took bronze in foil competition and sophomore Lance Fortner racked up crucial points in both foil and epee to secure the title. Emmanuelle Cola, a junior, also won bronze in foil to lead the women.

The team needed strong performances top-to-bottom in the two events because it had no one in the saber category this season. Other team members included: Ian Ngo, John Conroy and Alek Yegazarian for the men and Charlotte Weller, Emily Brown and Mary Alexa Cantalejo for the women.

Chaminade has won more state titles in fencing than in any other varsity sport. The long-time program has produced numerous standouts – including Snyder, from the Class of 2001 – who have gone on to compete at the college and international level.
