The John Carroll School is a Catholic, co-educational, college-preparatory learning community empowering a diverse student population to attain its highest potential. Through innovative practices and curriculum, we prepare students to positively influence a global society as critical thinkers and creative problem solvers while being socially responsible, spiritually centered, and morally grounded in our Catholic beliefs.
Our Promise to every John Carroll student and parent:
We will provide a Catholic foundation of values, challenging academics, and real-life experiences . . . so that our students will embrace opportunities and excel as responsible participants in the global society.
We will do everything possible to instill in all of our students: a strong sense of self; the capacity to achieve their personal fulfillment and professional aspirations; a global perspective; and a strong, moral compass to guide them throughout life.
