Chaminade’s Science, Technology & Research Center

The Claire Friedlander Family Foundation has made a grant to Chaminade High School in Mineola, NY, to support the development of their new Science, Technology, and Research Center. Scheduled for completion in December 2017, the Center will house new state-of-the-art Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics labs featuring the latest technologies.  A research lab will provide students with a space to study human and translatable science.  The Center’s rooftop will serve as an “outdoor classroom” for meteorological and astronomical observation.  The only high school building of its kind in the New York metropolitan area, and one of the first in the nation, the Center promises to prepare Chaminade students to meet the needs of a competitive workforce that demands minds with a thorough understanding of science, technology, and research.

Chaminade High School is a Catholic school for young men on Long Island.  Its 1,700 students follow a rigorous college-preparatory, liberal-arts curriculum in an atmosphere that emphasizes the development of Christian community and education of the heart.  Chaminade combines proven methods of tradition with modern educational advances to provide students with a rich, qualitative academic experience.

Founded in 1930 by the Society of Mary, the Marianists, Chaminade is staffed by Marianist brothers and priests as well as lay men and women.  100% of Chaminade graduates attend colleges, universities, prep schools, and service academies.  The Claire Friedlander Family Foundation is proud to assist Chaminade in preparing young minds for the future.
