Archbishop Carroll High School's Full Profile



Archbishop Carroll High School says

Archbishop Carroll High School is a catholic, co-educational, college preparatory school founded in 1951 and renewed in 1989, and accredited by the Middle States Association and the District of Columbia Department of Instruction. At Archbishop Carroll High School, our mission is to help students grow spiritually and academically, and enable them to become socially-conscious adults who can live their faith and contribute to the world community. Archbishop Carroll High School opened in 1951 and expressed the vision of the Most Reverend Patrick A. OBoyle, 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.
