Established to support hardworking students who make the uniquely challenging journey to Carondelet High School preferably from the Pittsburg/Antioch areas and beyond. These students often spend many hours commuting to and from Carondelet, which can create academic challenges when working with teachers or orchestrating group projects.

Blessed with much success in life, the Garaventas taught their family and community the true meaning of stewardship. They believed that when you had plenty, you shared what you could with others. Because of their love for Carondelet and the value of Catholic education, the family established this scholarship in their memory.

Created by the Carondelet Board of Trustees in 2012 to honor and recognize the former Principal and President as she retired from over three decades of leadership at Carondelet. This scholarship is a wonderful way to continue to honor Sister Kathy’s legacy of education of the mind, body, and spirit.
Newly endowed and created by Patricia Niven in honor of her daughter, Caitlin Caulfield ’13. They aspire to give a student who really wants to attend Carondelet the opportunity to benefit from the great education and foundation Caitlin experienced when she was a student here.

Established in 1982 to honor Gigi’s life of cheerful enthusiasm, cooperation, academic excellence, and keen sense of Christian service.
Established by John and his five daughters—all of whom are Carondelet graduates. After their parents’ deaths, their daughters continue to be major benefactors and supporters of the school. John and Donna helped establish the Carondelet development program and were largely responsible for the first donor appreciation dinner held in the early eighties.
Established in the late 90’s by her parents to honor her memory as a person who loves to smile and give to others, is faith filled, and dedicated to student leadership and school service.
