• 2015-2016 Department Chairs

    Beginning with the 2015-16 academic year, our department chairs will be collaboratively engaged in leading curriculum innovation and teacher development to create a vision for their departments that inspires excellence in meeting the needs of our students. Their work will include researching best practices, visiting schools demonstrating excellence, and staying abreast of trends and opportunities in Catholic and women's education as part of a departmental audit and assessment.

    I am excited to announce the following appointments:

    English: Mrs. Hayley Shapland
    Kinesiology: Mrs. Stephanie Cline
    Math: Mrs. Lesley Schooler '96
    Modern Language: Mrs. Jennifer Mammola
    Religion: Mrs. Jennifer Reinwald
    Science: Mrs. Merrilee Silveira '88
    Social Studies: Mr. Phil Miller
    Visual and Performing Arts: Mrs. Amy Way
    (follow this link to read the department chair bios)

    The new chairs have been provided with more time and flexibility to work within their departments and across all departments to facilitate successful student outcomes, and to focus on teacher observation and professional development. They will also gather and analyze data to prepare for our re-accreditation, and help ensure a dynamic educational environment that is meeting the needs of our students now and in the future.

    I am so pleased that after a regional search we found the best candidates from within our very own Carondelet faculty. I am proud that we have a strong group of educators who are so committed to the success of our students and our school and who are eager to lead the way for our exciting and dynamic future.

  • Renewing Our Mission

    Mission .JPG

    This past September, as part of Carondelet's strategic planning process, Carondelet's Leadership Team and Board of Directors assembled a group to examine how to better integrate Carondelet's mission into everything we do. This group, comprised of Sisters, board members and faculty and staff, quickly realized that in order for our mission to come to life and be actionable, it would first need to be refreshed to be simplified and easier to remember. Thus, the project of mission integration took a bit of a different path, starting not at integration but instead by looking at reworking the language in the mission itself. The group's aim was to reinforce the original spirit of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet while making the mission clear, actionable and easy to remember, so that it could provide direction for all we do as we take our school forward.

    After much prayerful reflection and months of work to get the language and feel "just right," the group presented the renewed mission to the Board and to the Sisters of the L.A. Province for final approval - which was given at the end of March.

    Carondelet High School inspires excellence by preparing young women to live with heart, faith and courage in the Catholic tradition and spirit of the Sisters of St. Joseph. (MISSION STATEMENT 2015)

    A Carondelet graduate is empowered by her Catholic, college-preparatory education and is known as a woman who responds to the needs of the times and makes a positive difference. (VISION STATEMENT 2015)
