 About Archbishop Carroll

Archbishop Carroll High School is a Catholic, college preparatory, co-educational school in the Archdiocese of Washington that welcomes young people and empowers them in an academically rigorous, diverse, and supportive learning environment. Established in 1951, Archbishop Carroll led by example as one of the first D.C. schools to defy segregation three years before the landmark civil rights Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education declared it unconstitutional. In 1989, Cardinal Hickey, the Archbishop of Washington, ordered three diocesan high schools merged into Carroll, All Saints, Holy Spirit, and Mackin. In doing so, he created a legacy at Carroll in three primary ways: by expanding its inclusive mission by enrolling women as a co-educational institution; by maintaining a consistent call for Catholic institutions to serve others; and by calling Carroll to effective financial stewardship. Carroll continues to honor its legacy as a place where all students can know, love and serve God. Archbishop Carroll is one of 93 Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Washington located across the region in Washington, D.C., and five Maryland counties. Learn more at
