Our Admissions team will reach out in January with an appointment time between 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM. Interviews last a total of 30 minutes - 15 minutes with the student and 15 minutes with the parents/guardians and student.

Carondelet High School admits qualified young women of any race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin in the administration of admission/educational policies, athletic, financial assistance, and other school-administered programs. Please refer to our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion page for more detailed information.
The Admissions Committee considers each applicant for the incoming Freshman class based on the student’s desire to attend Carondelet, High School Placement Test scores, middle school standardized test scores, seventh and eighth-grade report cards (academics, attendance, conduct, effort), school report by principal or designated official, and language and mathematics placement recommendations.
Although Carondelet’s curriculum is rigorously college prep, support services are available to students who may require additional support. Interviews regarding support, when deemed necessary, will be scheduled.
A wait pool will be maintained for qualified students who cannot be accepted because of full enrollment. Students who do not qualify will be so informed.
Eligibility for transfer applicants seeking admission into the Sophomore or Junior classes will be determined by an interview, high school transcript, standardized test scores, letters of recommendation, and Carondelet’s ability to provide a program of studies that will meet graduation requirements. Twelfth-grade eligibility is limited to specific circumstances. Please contact us for more information.
In the case of a former student re-applying, she and her parents must meet with administration before beginning the re-admission process.
