Dear Archbishop Carroll Family,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! It’s hard to believe that we are weeks from the first day of school. I am both grateful and humbled to continue to serve as President of Archbishop Carroll High School. It is truly a blessing to have been afforded the tremendous opportunity to return to my alma mater to partner with you and your child as we begin a new school year. Archbishop Carroll High School has proudly enjoyed a rich history as a strong, faith-based institution within the Archdiocese of Washington, and I am excited about the possibilities as we work to further enhance our instructional program.
So many advancements have taken place since the start of summer! We are excited to welcome 125 members to the Class of 2023....a true testament to the community’s faith in the wonderful things taking place at Archbishop Carroll! Our current strategic plan “Vision 2020” will expire at the end of the school year. Thus, we have begun the process of reviewing our strategic goals to ensure that we have a clear pathway for our students’ success. We have invested over $1,000,000 in facilities renovations reflective of our goal to ensure that our students and staff are welcomed back to an environment that reflects our commitment to teaching and learning. Highlights include the construction and renovation of our school library that will have a new computer lab, a newly-created conference room and welcome center, the addition of a broadcast studio and editing suites to support Archbishop Carroll’s Jim Vance Media Program to be completed by January 2020. The repair and resurfacing of our track, and the construction and renovation of the men’s restroom in the student lobby. Additionally, our community will have the opportunity to purchase spirit wear to show their Carroll Pride with the opening of the new book store this fall. These enhancements are just the beginning and I look forward to continuing our work this year!
As parents, you are important members of the Archbishop Carroll school community and play an integral role in your child's education. It is parents’ enthusiasm, support and involvement that inspire children to do their best and to strive to meet goals for academic achievement. Your support, coupled with the dedication and teaching expertise of our faculty and staff, will help to ensure your child’s success here at Archbishop Carroll High School, college, and beyond. As a college preparatory program, our staff is relentless in our efforts to ensure that all students will leave our school equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to successfully complete college and to compete in the workforce. With God’s grace, a rigorous instructional program, and your support, we will achieve this goal!
Thank you for your commitment to your child's education and I look forward to an amazing school year!
