Religious Studies

Religious studies curriculum builds every year towards helping develop women of Heart, Faith, Courage, and Excellence who become graduates of Carondelet that bring strong Gospel values into everything they do.

Our religious studies curriculum, in the Catholic tradition, is relevant and actionable for our students. In our program we:

  • Focus on Catholic Social Teaching and putting faith into action

  • Spiritual growth through integration of mindfulness practices and social emotional learning

  • Connect Catholic values to their lives

  • Increase opportunities for self-reflection

  • Embed the charism and spirit of the founding Sisters of St. Joseph as contemplatives in action who serve the dear neighbor. 

The Religious Studies Department aims to meet the needs of the student and model what it means to be a loving, Gospel-valued human being through the students’ four years at Carondelet.
