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.
Review these instructions for setting up an observer account.
Courses can be accessed through the Dashboard. Grades can be viewed from this page by selecting the “View Grades” link on the right side of the page. Assignments and due dates are visible on the Calendar.
Note: Individual calendars can be selected and deselected by clicking the boxes on the right side of the Calendar page.

Online Food Service Payment Instructions
As a convenience to parents, Chaminade and Creative Dining Services provide parents an easy way to add money to their son’s food service account. Online payments can be made into food service accounts through the Skyward Family Access they currently use. We have contracted with RevTrak, a national credit card payment processor, to provide a secure site for making payments.
Online Payments Are Easy and Convenient!
Parents can make online payments from home or work, 24 hours a day/7 days a week. If your son’s food service balance is low, it only takes a few minutes to add money to it using a Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card. Payments are made through the student’s Skyward Family Access account.
To make online payments:
Use your MasterCard or Visa(Debit or Credit Card) – card number and expiration date required
Payments made through Skyward Family Access will immediately be posted to the student’s food service account.

Skyward has an APP!
