Archbishop Carroll High School opened in 1951 and expressed the vision of the Most Reverend Patrick A. O’Boyle, the first Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Washington, who felt strongly that the Catholic Church should lead by example in the area of integration. Named in honor of Archbishop John Carroll, the first Catholic Archbishop in the United States, the school offered a college preparatory education for young women/men, regardless of race or ethnicity. For its first 40 years, the Augustinian Friars operated Archbishop Carroll and, along with lay faculty, taught students in a values-centered curriculum.
In 1989, the Archdiocese of Washington merged several high schools – Archbishop Carroll, All Saints, Mackin, the Academy of Notre Dame, Regina High School and Holy Spirit – into one school on the Archbishop Carroll site, and, at that point, the school became co-educational. The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme was introduced in 2009. Today, Carroll enrolls 385 students, and it remains as the only high school owned and operated by the Archdiocese of Washington.
Archbishop Carroll's current rival is Bishop McNamara High School.
