School Notes

  • Like the saints, our children are a diverse and beautiful bunch. We have our fair share of angels but a refreshing gang of rebels as well. We have scientists, soccer stars, chefs, and diplomats. We have math whizzes who love a challenge and very bright kids who can use some occasional support. We`re an intimate community of amazing one-of-a-kind kids and educators..
  • At Carondelet Catholic School, our teaching begins with knowing and loving what`s unique about every single student. We meet students where they are, or more importantly, we meet them as they are and from there, we embark on a journey with exciting twists and turns, a journey that helps each child become the very best version of their God-given selves.

Carondelet is not just a school. It is an amazing community of teachers and administrators that instantly became like family. The teachers and facility truly love each and every kid. You can feel the warmth and love the second you walk into the school. I have has one son who did K-8 at Carondelet and just started high school. He was incredibly prepared academically for the challenges at St. Thomas Academy. Carondelet does so more than teach strong academics. They teach respect, compassion, and giving back to the community. They truly helped raise my son and shape him into the amazing young man he is today. I also have a younger son here and am so thankful for this amazing school and community.

My three children all attended Carondelet and I cannot say enough great things about this school. The teachers, the administration and families were invaluable assets to our family. I have two now in high and one who just graduated college and all were extremely prepared for high school and beyond. We especially loved their well-rounded curriculum which includes an amazing arts program, band, theater, Spanish, various programming for accelerated learners and many extracurriculars.
