AQUINAS BOARDING PROGRAM
 
Bishop Carroll Catholic High School offers boarding programs for domestic and international students at our on-campus housing facility, Aquinas Hall.  The building was originally the summer home of Pittsburgh Steel Magnate David Park, and was designed by world-renowned architect Walter Myton.  The building then transformed into the Elmer Daly Inn, where prominent figureheads from around the country stayed.  In the later years, the building served as classrooms for Bishop Carroll Catholic High School, a convent, and home to the Penn Highlands Community College.  In 2008, it was transformed into the Aquinas Boarding House.
