Carondelet High School

Academics

Carondelet is dedicated to inspiring excellence in our students, helping them to realize their full potential and discover their passions as women of heart, faith and courage.

We offer our students a challenging college preparatory curriculum including elective courses in art, music, physical education and computer science. We also offer a full range of AP and Honors courses in English, Math, Social Studies, Modern Languages, Science and Visual and Performing Arts, as well as an Educational Resource Program for those students in need of academic support. At the Junior and Senior level, the combined course offerings of Carondelet and De La Salle, an adjacent Catholic boys’ school, provides a co-educational experience while maintaining each individual school’s identity.

We also offer a wide range of extracurricular activities including campus ministry, theater, honor societies, interscholastic sports, music, peer counseling, athletics, student government and yearbook.


Carondelet provides a rigorous education that incorporates all forms of critical thinking and inspires a life-long love of learning.

Happening In and Out of the Classroom

Last summer, Francesca A. '20 participated in Camp Reel Stories at the Oakland School for the Arts. Her film, titled "A Deeper Meaning: Behind the Stereotype," focuses on the different stereotypes women have encountered throughout their lives and how it has affected them. "My favorite part about this camp was walking around and interviewing people on the street for our film," Francesca said. "The topic we chose is important to me because I think it's very relevant today in our society."

Francesca participated in the summer program because she is interested in film and the camp's goal is to empower more young women to share their stories and create their own films. The camp teaches the basics of filmmaking, from operating a sound boom, to techniques for getting the best shots with a camera. The five-day program also includes daily visits from guest speakers who produce different genres of films, and allows the girls to get more insight into the film making process. They were given three days to collaborate in groups and create their own films.

This poignant short film will now be featured at the Portland Film Festival from March 2 to 5 in the Youth / POWGirls Showcase. Congratulations, Francesca!
