Carondelet is more than high school. It’s her school. Our philosophy and approach empowers each girl to find her voice and to speak out and advocate for herself and others. At the heart of our sisterhood is our Catholic tradition, rooted in the mission of our founders, the Sisters of St. Joseph. We create an inclusive environment that embraces all students, welcomes diversity, ensures equity, and values social justice, empathy, service, gratitude, and spirituality. At Carondelet, leaders are formed, character is built, and lifelong relationships are cultivated. We work to make connections throughout academic disciplines, and help our students see the relevance of their classwork in their own lives. Collaboration and real-world problem solving are key elements that lead to independence, confidence, and a love for learning that lets our students explore their own passions.
