Carondelet Catholic School is a special place. You see it in the faces of our students. You feel it in the enthusiasm of our faculty and staff. You hear it in the voices of our volunteers. And you experience it in the warm and welcoming embrace of our parent community.
We are a school with a rich tradition of academic excellence and community service. As you explore everything Carondelet has to offer, we invite you to visit our two campuses; meet with our faculty; attend our events, games and prayer services; and see firsthand how we’re preparing another generation of children for a life of learning and service.

School Forum. The award recognizes excellence in Minnesota's private and
independent school community, and serves as the only state-wide awards event
for nonpublic education. Mr. Nutter was nominated for his exemplary
contributions to education modeled both within and beyond the classroom. The School Forum's 2014 Awards Celebration was held May 13 at the University of St. Thomas. Please join us in congratulating Mr. Nutter on this well-deserved recognition.

Thank you to the countless donors and volunteers who helped build Carondelet's new Upper Campus playground. The crew worked over two weekends in June removing the old equipment and constructing the new play structure, designed by Landscape Structures. The Saints Men's Club kicked-off the initiative last fall by soliciting donations and volunteers. Donations from Carondelet's Go-Go "Fund-a-Need" this spring were also a major source of funding for this special project. The playground officially opened on June 26 following a blessing by Fr. Dale Korogi. The playground has already been given the "thumbs up" from students and neighbors. Thank you to everyone who generously contributed to this community build. Your Giving Matters!
