Cardinal Carter Catholic High School, often shortened to Cardinal Carter, is a high school in Aurora, Ontario, Canada in the York Catholic District School Board. The school principal is Fran Fraser. The vice principals are Lynne Oliphant, Phyllis Vander-Dolen, and Bohdan Lechman.

Cardinal Carter was established in 1989, commencing operation for grades eight and nine at Our Lady of the Annunciation elementary school. Once construction of the school was completed, service boundaries were defined by the school board to alleviate overcrowding of other Roman Catholic schools in the region, notably St. Robert and St. Elizabeth high schools in Thornhill, and Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Newmarket. It takes its name after Cardinal Gerald Emmett Carter, former Archbishop of Toronto.

The school is located on a private campus directly across the street from the York Catholic District School Board. It has numerous elementary feeder schools within its service boundaries:

  • Aurora: Holy Spirit Catholic Elementary School, Light of Christ Catholic Elementary School, Our Lady of Grace Catholic Elementary School, St. Joseph Catholic Elementary School
  • King City: Holy Name Catholic Elementary School
  • Oak Ridges: Our Lady of Hope Catholic Elementary School, Our Lady of the Annunciation Catholic Elementary School, Father Frederick McGinn Catholic Elementary School
  • Maple: St. David Catholic Elementary School, Divine Mercy Catholic Elementary School, Holy Jubilee Catholic Elementary School, St. James Catholic Elementary School
  • Nobleton: St. Mary Catholic Elementary School
  • Schomberg: St. Patrick Catholic Elementary School
