Patriots achieve, and the results speak for themselves

Our 72-acre campus is home to nearly 750 current students, 100 faculty and staff, and 10,000 alumni — all of whom are making a difference in the world.

Through innovative practices and curriculum, we prepare students to positively influence a global society as critical thinkers and creative problem solvers while being socially responsible, spiritually centered and morally grounded in our Catholic beliefs.

Let our home be your home

We are blessed with a bucolic 72-acre campus in the heart of Bel Air, MD. It supports our primary mission as a faith-based school — from the St. Jude Chapel to the newly renovated Science Labs, it offers Patriots with countless resources and opportunities. Most importantly, it’s a place Patriots call home, even after graduation.

At The John Carroll School, each student is known, valued and prepared.

What sets John Carroll apart are the stories of each and every Patriot — students, alumni, parents, faculty, staff and coaches — that are written every day. John Carroll provides transformative experiences that provide a lifetime of memories, but also prepare tomorrow’s leaders today to make a tremendous impact on their communities and the world. 

Build a robot or pilot a drone in the STEAM Academy. Express yourself on the stage in the College Preparatory Dance Program or one of our award-winning theater productions. Explore future careers or go on a life-changing mission trip. Bond with teammates on the field or on the Academic Team. Whatever your passion, John Carroll has a class or extracurricular activity to develop it.

From the time they arrive for Freshman Orientation to the moment they walk confidently across the Graduation stage, our students are both nurtured and challenged by our stellar faculty and staff to become the best possible versions of themselves. On the grounds of our beautiful 72-acre campus, they receive a world-class education close to home at the only coeducational, independent Catholic high school in northeastern Maryland.

We invite you to visit and start your Patriot story today.
