Head of School's Message

Dear Husky Faithful,

As a school community, we believe that children flourish in their learning and growth when parents and educators join together in a partnership that is characterized by clearly defined and shared responsibilities, open lines of communication, trust, mutual respect, and a common goal: doing what is best for the student to develop the whole child. The expectations and responsibilities that Bishop Carroll Catholic High School and Husky parents work together to uphold the faith filled environment and high academic standards that are expressed in our School Mission.

Guiding, teaching, mentoring, and parenting children is challenging and rewarding work. As educators and parents, we are all responsible for continuing to learn and cultivate the skills and best practices for parenting and developing our students and children. As adults, we are examples to children. When we work together--as parents, teachers, and school leaders--to create a supportive, positive, and respectful setting for each other, we have set the stage for our students to flourish in a nurturing and uplifting learning community.

The work we do together as educators and parents to develop children and to do what is best for children is challenging and complex, and there is arguably no more consequential work in life than the work of developing and educating children. At Bishop Carroll Catholic High School through a strong partnership between parents and teachers and school leaders, we are building up children and we are working together to help each child build a strong foundation that will make an impact that lasts a lifetime.

We love our students, and we are grateful to you for the partnership we share with you to support the growth and development of each child within our school community.
