Chanel College is a Catholic co-educational college in Moamoa, Samoa. Founded in 1962 by the Marist Fathers, the school was originally a boys-only boarding school, with special permission for non-boarders, but later became co-educational. The first principal was Father Bernard Doherty. The first Head Prefect was Lino Samoa, who later received from his family his chiefly title of "Taupa'u". It is located near the top of Mount Vaea, at the end of Moamoa Road, which leads directly from Apia. The schools has been staffed by a combination of Marist Fathers, Salasian sisters, various volunteer organizations and regular employees. Enrollment numbers (in 2008 numbers) exceeded 400 students.
