The formation of students as disciples of Jesus occurs during the sacred liturgy, in the classroom, on the playing field, on the performance stage and everywhere a Bishop Carroll student interacts with the community. The Eucharist is the source of the summit of our lives. Students and faculty participate in daily Mass, the sacrament of confession, Eucharistic adoration, retreats, prayer throughout the day, and stewardship to family, parish and the community. Religion classes are taken each semester, taught with great fidelity to our Holy Mother Church. We strive to build up the Body of Christ by forming disciples to carry out the New Evangelization.
Bishop Carroll, a four-year co-educational Catholic secondary school, is located on the west side of Wichita, a city with a population of over 350,000.
In 1962, Notre Dame High School, an all boys’ school was opened. Madonna High School, an all girls’ school, opened in 1966 under the guidance of the Sisters Adorers of the Blood of Christ and the Congregation of St. Joseph. Then in 1964, Notre Dame High School moved to Bishop Carroll’s current location with faculty of eight Christian Brothers, two priests and 13 lay teachers.
In 1971, Madonna High School and Bishop Mark K. Carroll High School were consolidated to form Bishop Carroll Catholic High School.
The faculty now consists of four Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary of Wichita, one diocesan priest and 68 lay men and women.
