This Is Our Time

The Campaign for Carondelet

The Natalie Coughlin Aquatic Center
is now open!

A new era is underway at Carondelet!

To give our students the world-class facilities and life-transforming experience they deserve, we are in the middle of a $38 million capital campaign to:

  • Build the Carondelet Athletics Complex and Student Center which will foster school pride and competitive spirit and give our teams a home field for the first time!
  • Build a STEM Innovation Center (for science, technology, engineering and math) where young women can stretch their minds and build their ingenuity and creativity.
  • Create an Endowed Needs-Based Scholarship Fund to ensure that a quality Catholic education remains accessible for those who otherwise could not afford it. Goal of $7.5 million met in full, thanks to the generosity of the Hofmann Family Foundation!

This Is Our Time.

The Swimming Team marked the start of a New Era for Carondelet student-athletes with a celebratory First Splash on February 6 followed by the first practice of the season.

The history-making will continue later this spring with the opening of state-of-the-art Softball Fields, Tennis Courts and Jeffery Field for our Soccer and Lacrosse teams. While rainy weather and the permitting process have forced delays, the completion of the entire Carondelet Athletic Complex is now in sight.

Return here for announcements of exciting events to come celebrating Carondelet’s beautiful new campus and new era!

Concept Plan

Natalie Coughlin smiles and hangs on the lane line

The brand new Natalie Coughlin Aquatic Center is named in honor of three-time Olympic gold medalist and Class of 2000 alumna, Natalie Coughlin Hall.

"I applaud my alma mater for its commitment to creating greater equity for female athletes by investing in a second campus that will be home to seven teams and all 800 students," Natalie said.
