Chaminade utilizes the Learning Management System, Canvas, as the primary source of information and communication between students and teachers. The main Chaminade website contains the school news, school calendar and links to resources, while homework calendars and assignments for individual courses are available through Canvas. This system allows students to submit assignments electronically, and for teachers to grade and provide feedback via email or text message directly to students.

Parents and students are able to communicate with teachers through the course messaging system. While Canvas is the primary source for grading, Skyward currently serves as the official record for final grades and transcripts.

Training for Canvas will be available to new students during orientation. All students will be exposed to Canvas during mentor group and in their classes during the beginning of the school year.

Parents have the ability to view assignments, grades, and other course information through Canvas. In order to have this access, Parents will need to register as an “Observer” in their son's classes. Course information will be available August 17th. Students will be registered into their classes by Chaminade staff and will not have to complete this self-registration process. Below are the instructions for the parent registration process.
