Mission & Ministry
What if you spent as much time focusing on your spiritual health as you do on your mental and physical health? In today's fast-paced world, it's more important that ever to slow down, reflect and find the peace, faith and strength you need to successfully navigate these challenging times.
That's why we promise every John Carroll student and parent that we will provide a Catholic foundation of values, challenging academics and real-life experiences so that our students will embrace opportunities and excel as responsible participants in the global society. Our dedicated faculty and staff not only teach school subjects, but model and help develop a moral compass that will guide students for the rest of their lives. This is supported by our Mission and Ministry team who facilitate:
- A four-year religion curriculum that fosters awareness of God's presence in our lives, while heightening our responsibility to serve others within the Church and community
- A robust retreat program that enables our students to share and reflect upon how God is actively working in their lives.
- Regular prayer and liturgy during which our students experience God through His life-giving Word and Sacrament,
While rooted in rich Catholic heritage, we pride ourselves on our ecumenical spirit, showing respect and appreciation for other faith traditions represented in John Carroll's diverse community.
We see the results of these efforts every day - in students who are respectful, compassionate and focused on becoming true servant leaders.
