"Spending $$$ for what you can get for free?"
I have four kids. Three boys and a girl. 2 Cham, one public, one St A. You simply cannot compare the education at Cham to the other two. Worth every single penny. My experience. My guess is that the poster who wrote this question does not have a son let alone any relative who attended Chaminade. My guess is that you have no frame of reference.
My son is at public he has received a stellar education and is headed off to a great school. He has several teammates headed to top Ivies. No need to waste money on what we have enjoyed as a part of our tax payments. Community pride and well earned accomplishments will always be cherished memories. I'm proud to say we did not seek to find the greener grass, because it was right here all along!
