Many The Gifts

This publication is a humble reflection of the generosity that our community so graciously shared with Carondelet High School in the 2013-14 school year. It is a litany of kindness that stretches from a five-dollar gift made by a freshman girl to major gifts or an endowment of millions of dollars. This remarkable representation of deep commitment to Carondelet spans hundreds of families and several generations, and represents close to a half century of relationship with the School.


Summer 2014 Issue - Celebrate! :  Every fall, about two-hundred freshman students begin high school at Carondelet. They come as girls, wide-eyed with anticipation, curiosity, and anxiety. They know—and yet they cannot know—that in the four years to follow, they will assume new responsibilities, face unfamiliar challenges, and embark on unexpected adventures. They will forge relationships with classmates, some of whom will become lifelong friends. They will explore their spirituality and develop a more mature relationship with God. And they will learn about themselves and their place in the world. They will grow up.  

With passion and commitment, the Carondelet faculty, families, and community teach, support, and inspire students so that, four years after those children step tentatively onto the campus, they emerge as women who are capable, aware, generous, and ready to pursue their dreams. Our investment of time and resources—and our students’ persistence and hard work—culminates in graduation, the celebration of two-hundred women who have come of age before our eyes. This issue of the Carondeletter honors the accomplishments of the class of 2014, and the collective dedication that nurtured yet another group of women to go out and make a difference in the world.
