At The John Carroll School, we realize the decision to choose a high school is a critical one. Students arrive in their early teens; they leave as young adults. Those four short years make all the difference in their desire and ability to envision and fulfill their dreams. 

We encourage interested families to visit us. Meet our teachers. Talk to our students. See our school at work and at play. We are proud of our rich tradition of excellence and confident about our future, dedicated to the loving service of young people.
