CJ Students Influencing Our World Today

A new program at Chaminade Julienne challenges seniors to apply all the lessons of their four-year Catholic educational experience by actualizing the traditions of the school’s two founding orders, the Marianists and the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. The Senior Capstone Project is a cross-curricular, inquiry-based research project that calls seniors to become servant leaders in our world today.

National Catholic Schools Week 2014

The 2013-14 school year marks the 40th celebration of National Catholic Schools Week, which is being observed Sunday, Jan. 26 through Saturday, Feb. 1. This year's theme is Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge, and Service.

You are invited to follow along as we mark the celebration at CJ with activities, prayer, reflections, trivia, a donation drive, a Catholic t-shirt day and an all-school Mass.

'Tis The Season!

During the holidays members of the CJ community, like members of most families, look forward to sharing in special Christmas traditions, many of which are aimed at helping others.

Here are just a few examples of how students, faculty and staff are spreading the Christmas spirit this season.

Marian Library Nativities on Display

Walk from classroom to classroom during the Advent season at CJ and you'll have the opportunity to see how people of differing worldviews visually interpret the birth of Christ.

Eight unique cultural 3-D depictions of the Nativity scene are now on display throughout areas of the CJ school building. Displays are on loan from the University of Dayton’s renowned Marian Library/International Marian Research Institute collection, which holds the largest number of artifacts devoted to Mary including nearly 3,000 Nativities.

Hunger Banquet Demonstrates Disparities

Students at CJ’s Oxfam Hunger Banquet this fall had an opportunity to experience the pangs of real world disparities that exist between those born into prosperity and poverty in our global society.

Sixty participants, mostly students, arrived to the cafeteria on the evening of Nov. 19 expecting dinner. And a majority of those folks -- like the majority of the world’s population -- were left feeling hungry.

Mapping Out Join Hands Miami Valley

For over 20 years, members of the Chaminade Julienne community have partnered with the United Way of Greater Dayton during one fall weekend, volunteering at various organizations and community agencies in recognition of Join Hands Miami Valley (JHMV) -- a local celebration of National Make A Difference Day.

This year, more than 140 CJ students and 14 faculty & staff members took time Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 25-26 to volunteer at 13 different service sites in greater Dayton.

Students Lap Up Leadership Seminars

October has kept students of the Chaminade Julienne community immersed in leadership activities.

This month students had the privilege of attending the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) Student Leadership Conference and the Anthony Muñoz Youth Leadership Seminar. Both provided excellent opportunities for students to grow in community with peers from different high schools while simultaneously honing their own personal leadership characteristics.
