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
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 fundraising events, including the JCPA Bull Roast, Christmas Bazaar and Spring Fundraiser. Additionally, the JCPA sells Senior Banners, coordinates and executes After-Prom and holds social events. Through these efforts, as well as selling concessions, we have been able to invest in the school and our students.
The JCPA is proud to have contributed $25,000 to the school's Safety and Security initiatives, which purchased many upgrades, including the new 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 have had a great year and 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!
