Chaminade Julienne Catholic High School is committed to the highest academic standards of excellence. The academic program is designed to enhance the knowledge and critical thinking skills necessary for students to become life-long learners and contributing members of society. At CJ, each student is encouraged to continually strive for academic excellence at a level commensurate with his or her ability. Respecting the individual needs of each student, CJ offers courses at various academic levels.
Students are placed in courses based on standardized test scores, teacher recommendations, and past performance. It is possible for students to be enrolled in courses at different levels. For example, a student may have demonstrated superior abilities in English and be enrolled in an honors English course while at the same time be enrolled in a college preparatory math course.
