Founded in 1964 by the Archdiocese of Toronto, it opened its doors in September, 1965. Initially under the control of the Society of Mary (the Marianists), the school was named for the Society's founder, Father William Joseph Chaminade.
The mandate of the school was to prepare young men for post-secondary education in a traditional Catholic secondary school environment. The school's motto “Fortes in fide” emphasizes the importance of the virtue of faith in the life of the Catholic school.
In 1967, Chaminade began a partnership with the Metropolitan Separate School Board (now Toronto Catholic District School Board). In this partnership, the Board conducted the first two years of secondary school, and the Archdiocese conducted the remaining years. In September 1972, the Irish Christian Brothers took over administration of the school, until their departure in June 1988. The school is currently fully operated by the MSSB after the funding was expanded and the identity of the religious order for that school is preserved.
The school won a Green Toronto award in 2007 for its pioneering efforts in establishing the Adopt a Stream project that became a city-wide model for waterway cleanup.〔John Goddard, ("A Toronto river runs through them: Garbage patrol is only part of school's care and cleaning of Humber tributary" ), ''Toronto Star'', May 2, 2007.〕 In 2008, students circulated a petition which resulted in the Province of Ontario outlawing smoking in automobiles when children are passengers.
Chaminade was also the school attended by Richard Steele the prime suspect in the infamous Boxing Day Shooting in the city of Toronto that left one Jane Creba dead.
Chaminade is also known for its athletic achievements with Tevaun Smith and James Bodanis currently playing college football in the United States.
