During the school year, the academic day begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 2:45 p.m., with the exception of early dismissal days. Early dismissal days occur once every eight-day cycle with dismissal at 2:15 p.m. The School is currently operating under summer hours — Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
The eight-day cycle allows for optimal instruction because it varies the time of day the student has the class. It also helps students avoid missing the same class each week for sports games and other extracurricular events that may occur on the same day of the week.
John Carroll currently offers 50+ AP and Honors courses and has special diploma distinctions including Fine Arts and Science, plus the new AP Capstone diploma.
