School Notes:

  • Archbishop Carroll High School opened in 1951 and expressed the vision of the Most Reverend Patrick A. O’Boyle, the first Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Washington, who felt strongly that the Catholic Church should lead by example in the area of integration. Named in honor of Archbishop John Carroll, the first Catholic Archbishop in the United States, the school offered a college preparatory education for young men, regardless of race or ethnicity. For its first 40 years, the Augustinian Friars operated Archbishop Carroll and, along with lay faculty, taught students in a values-centered curriculum.
  • In 1989, the Archdiocese of Washington merged several high schools -- Archbishop Carroll, All Saints, Mackin, and Holy Spirit – into one school on the Archbishop Carroll site, and, at that point, the school became co-educational. Today, Carroll enrolls more than 600 students, and it remains as the only high school owned and operated by the Archdiocese of Washington.
