The full package

Carondelet’s engaging college preparatory curriculum includes a full range of AP and Honors courses. Our unique cross-disciplinary, collaborative approach puts each student at the center of her own learning.

We offer 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.

Starting right

Our curriculum builds a strong foundation of the essential skills by creating the environment for each student to adopt and develop a growth mindset. Carondelet students take control of their own learning experience, including the decision to tackle honors and AP coursework across all subject areas.

We work to make connections among academic disciplines, and help our students see the relevance of their academic work to their own lives. Collaboration, real-world problems, and self-discovery are key elements that lead to independence, healthy risk-taking, and a love for learning that lets our students find their own passions.
