SCHOOL

PROFILE

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: to create an inclusive environment that embraces all students, welcomes diversity, and values social justice, empathy, service, and gratitude. At Carondelet, leaders are formed, character is built, and lifelong relationships are cultivated. We work to make connections among academic disciplines, and help our students see the relevance of their classwork in their own lives. Collaboration and realworld problem solving are key elements that lead to independence, confidence, and a love for learning that lets our students explore their own passions.

also being able to listen to what others believe even if it varies from my way of thinking.
