Carondelet High School maintains that students, parents, and teachers collaborate in providing a quality education to all students here. We believe in the dignity of the individual, the value of diversity, and are committed to giving each student the opportunity to receive a quality Catholic education in a caring environment.
Carondelet recognizes that students with diagnosed needs may be in need of additional support to have equitable and reasonable opportunity for success.
The Academic Support Program is open to all students who may need extra support, (as deemed necessary by the Director of Academic and Learning Support and by Carondelet’s Case Managers) and to students who have documented disabilities. The Case Managers oversee the program which provides students with accommodations within the required curriculum, along with designing and implementing the Educational Accommodations Plan for students with documented learning differences, medical or psychological diagnoses.

Faculty are available to meet with students during scheduled times. In addition, all faculty participate in the PowerLab structure and are available for additional support. View faculty availability.
PowerLab is a time and space for students to receive extra assistance from teachers, peer tutors, and case managers who are there every day for supportive conversations and work sessions. PowerLab takes place on Mondays - Thursdays from 2:45 - 3:45, in the Innovation Center, 2nd floor.
Students can opt into PowerLab at any time. Students can also be referred to PowerLab by teachers or parents. If you are interested in referring your student to PowerLab, please have a conversation with your child regarding this opportunity first! We will then alert your student with an invitation by email. The form for referral can be found here.
