The Academic Support Program is comprised of several new initiatives, and many longstanding resources, for students to take advantage of throughout the school year.

All students will be assigned an Academic Lab as part of their schedule (full year in the High School and Sixth Grade, one semester in Seventh and Eighth Grades). During Academic Lab students will have the opportunity to complete online assignments for their courses, get caught up on homework, seek assistance from available math and English teachers, make up assessments missed from absences, meet with their counselor, and seek out academic assistance. There will also be the opportunity to learn and practice effective study habits and test preparation skills.

Blume Scholars are identified through the Chaminade high school admissions process. These students will participate in a three week summer course that will prepare them to start their CCP journey off on the right foot. Blume Scholars will benefit from a guided Academic Lab throughout the school year that will support their efforts in the classroom. This is a three year program. However, students who demonstrate the ability to successfully navigate CCP without this support can move on from the program at the end of an academic year.
The Summer Esto Vir Academy is one component of the Chaminade Summer Academy. This program component provides assistance for Chaminade students who are in need of remediating and recovering academic credit. Summer courses will be taught by Chaminade's faculty.
