About Carondelet High School

A Catholic community welcoming to all, Carondelet empowers and equips young women to change their worlds. The school provides extraordinary college and career preparation and a supportive “Sisterhood” of 800 classmates that motivates our students to be their best selves. Notably, Carondelet is the only single-sex secondary school for young women in Contra Costa County.

Under President Bonnie Cotter, Carondelet has taken significant strides in recent years toward achieving the strategic goal of “becoming a National Model for excellent, innovative education for your women spirited in the Catholic tradition.” These strides include raising gifts of $15,000,000 and $8,000,000, expanding course offerings and curricular innovation, and opening the new Carondelet Athletics Complex. The school has engaged Simpson Scarborough, a nationally recognized firm to conduct a market research project in the summer of 2018 and anticipates launching a brand campaign in the 2018-19 academic year.
