PROFILE Carondelet is more than a gateway to college and a successful career. Itâ€™s a place where leaders are formed, character is built and life-long relationships are cultivated. Carondeletâ€™s 9-acre main campus, which spans Concord and Walnut Creek, was voted one of the most attractive school campuses in the state, offering a new STEM Innovation Center, community gathering spaces and labs with cutting edge technology and 3D printers. Our new 6-acre Carondelet Athletics Complex gives our athletes the state-of-the-art facilities they need to reach their full potential.
