Parent Cooperation

As partners in the educational process, one of the goals of Bishop John Carroll Cathedral School is for parents, administration and school staff to work together in forming and educating our children. As collaborators with parents, we welcome constructive feedback for the betterment of the school. However, we expect that such criticism or feedback be given in a respectful manner. The principal and the pastor reserve the right to require a parent to withdraw the child/children if the parent’s conduct is in violation of such respect


The pastor, under the authority of the Archbishop, is the primary spiritual leader of the parish of which the school is a part. The Pastor delegates immediate direction of the school and its instructional program to the Principal, who leads the school in accordance with the policies of the Archdiocesan Catholic School Office and the School Advisory Council (SAC).
