Archbishop Carroll was established in 1998 by the Archdiocese of Miami to serve the growing Catholic population in southwest Miami-Dade County. The school sits on 40 acres of land intended to meet the needs of the growing population. The campus has a "college" look and has opportunities to develop as the area develops to meet the needs of the 21st-century learning and beyond. The school is named after Archbishop Coleman Francis Carroll, the first Bishop of Miami.
