President’s Message


Welcome to Archbishop Carroll High School, where we are celebrating 50 years of excellence in Catholic education.

Cardinal John Krol blessed and dedicated our school on Apr. 28, 1968, on the historic Main Line area of Philadelphia.  The Sisters of St. Joseph, diocesan priests and lay faculty stood ready to prepare to educate countless young women and men who continue to go forth, making a difference beyond the walls of Carroll.  As we mark our 50th anniversary, Carroll remains committed to excellence in the spiritual, academic and social development of our students, who come from every country in the Philadelphia region.

In the classroom, we are launching the Carroll Chromebook Initiative, which will see every Carroll student issued a Chromebook, forever changing their learning experience.  We’re adapting to a growth mindset where students are constantly being challenged to achieve, learn and improve.  That’s the learning environment we are creating at Carroll.

Our 50th anniversary celebration commenced Friday, Sept. 29, 2017, Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., archbishop of Philadelphia, celebrated Mass for our school community.  This was a pivotal moment in Carroll’s history, and we were blessed to have Archbishop Chaput in our presence to mark this milestone. Watch a replay of the 50th Anniversary Mass.

On Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017, we honored Mr. Barry Kirsch during our inaugural Hall of Fame Event.  Barry has served Carroll since its inception, as a teacher, coach, Pro-Life moderator, mentor and friend to all.  He is the best of what Carroll has to offer our students.  His consistency, zeal, determination and humility have provided a wonderful example for generations of Carroll students. This was a perfect opportunity to celebrate this great man.

We will conclude our 50th anniversary celebration the weekend of Apr. 28-29.  On Saturday, Apr. 28, we’re planning a full day of activities ending with an anniversary party and fireworks from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., followed by Mass on on Sunday, Apr. 29, celebrated by Bishop Michael J. Fitzgerald, D.D., J.D., J.C.D., V.G., auxiliary to the Archbishop of Philadelphia.

There’s much more about Carroll and I invite you to explore the pages of our website to learn about Carroll, #WhereSuccessBegins!

Warm regards,

Francis E. Fox ‘77
President
