Welcome, Patriot Parents!
Parents have always played an essential role in The John Carroll School’s commitment to educate their children.
Parents are instrumental in the educational processes. You were your children’s first teachers and continue in this role as you model desired behavior, help with homework, and play and work with your children, while shaping them into responsible and compassionate young adults.
Thank you for all that you have done and continue do to help us do our job better.

How We Give Back
How We Give Back
The John Carroll Parent Association (JCPA) is proud to be a strong partner in our school community. Through countless volunteer hours, our parents, grandparents and families have worked closely with faculty and students to positively influence campus life. We extend a big THANK YOU for all that have given their time and energy to the PA.
During the year, we sponsor events and sell Senior Banners and concessions, among other activities. Through these efforts, we have been able to invest in the school and our students.
The JCPA is proud to have made substantial gifts over the past several years which have supported many important campus updates, including the new Brown Fitness Center, the installation of air conditioning in the performing arts hallway and rooms, and the Welcome Center at the main entrance.
We also support the school by volunteering our time through activities such as assisting with Open House, serving as JC Ambassadors, and providing faculty support, just to name a few.
We look forward to continuing the tradition of excellence with all of our dedicated volunteers, faculty and staff. Please consider becoming an active member of the Parent Association. It is a rewarding way to be involved and stay informed! Go Patriots!
