  • 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)

  • "Every 15 Minutes" Program Raises Awareness - Now What?

    This year’s “Every 15 Minutes” Program again provided the students of Carondelet and De La Salle with a significant, powerful consideration of the many issues that emerge when drinking and driving bring tragedy into the lives of so many. The program was a great partnership among students, parents, faculty, and a whole range of community support services (police, fire, emergency, religious, counseling).

    What's next?

    As we move into Junior Prom (March 28) and Senior Ball (April 25) activities, we urge parents to consider carefully all their moral and legal obligations to keep our young people away from dangerous situations that involve access to alcohol. Now is a good time for parents to review their commitment to the “Safe Homes” pledge and it is important for parents to stand together and send a consistent message to their sons and daughters. This sometime means that parents must be willing to challenge each other. Please do it for the kids!
