LIFT and the Impact on Enrollment

As first seen in the Fall 2016 edition of Vision.

“What impact has LIFT had on enrollment?” It is a question that Director of Admissions Brett Chmiel ‘02

says continues to humble him.

“While we can’t measure the direct impact now, there is a correlation between good enrollment momentum and our community’s excitement for the outcomes of LIFT.

Visit CJ at the 2016 Open House

All are welcome to the Chaminade Julienne Open House on Sunday, November 6 from 2-4 p.m.

"Many families have already taken the time to learn more about what we offer at CJ and they attend our Open House to affirm their decision to choose CJ," reflected Director of Admissions Brett Chmiel '02. "Some families may be taking advantage of the Open House by making this their first visit to our campus. For any reason that a family attends the Open House, they do so because they want to learn more about what CJ will afford their child in the future."

RSVP Online For Parent Receptions

Chaminade Julienne Catholic High School is conducting off-campus information sessions in neighborhoods around the Miami Valley.

Parents will meet with current families, members of school leadership, and CJ President Dan Meixner '84. Currently, there are five scheduled parent receptions.

Discovery Days

International Student Program Embarks Initial Year

Seven current CJ students and two CJ alumni acted as true ambassadors as they spent their last Friday of their summer break back at CJ welcoming new international students to school.

“The orientation was to give the new international students an initial overview of the building and of our community,” shared Brett Chmiel ’02, Director of Admissions. “It allowed them to meet some of the other students in a more intimate setting without experiencing too much culture shock.”
