Carondelet is a four-year Catholic high school serving young women of Contra Costa County. Since its founding in 1965, Carondelet has carried on a proud tradition of Christian community and academic excellence.
Students are offered a full college preparatory curriculum. Our focus is a single-sex, comprehensive educational program designed to prepare women for leadership and service. On the junior and senior level, Carondelet and De La Salle, an adjacent Catholic boys' school, combine course offerings.
Co-curricular offerings include campus ministry, drama, honor societies, interscholastic and intramural sports, a literary newsletter, multicultural club, music, peer tutoring, speech and debate, student government, yearbook, and community service. Over 90% of our seniors are involved in community service.
