Carroll High School is a private, coeducational high school located in Dayton, Ohio, United States. It is run by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati. It is sometimes referred to as Archbishop Carroll High School or Dayton Carroll. As of 2015, 750 students are enrolled at Carroll.[1]

History[edit]

Carroll High School is named for John Carroll (1735–1815), the first bishop and subsequently the first archbishop of the United States. The school opened its doors to students on August 18, 1961. Carroll's first class graduated May 31, 1965.

Clubs and activities[edit]

Carroll High School hosts Dayton's only student-run closed-circuit television station, Media 4 Carroll. Among reading the announcements, students write, film, and edit "Saturday Night Live" style skits involving fellow students and faculty members. Shows are uploaded to Carroll's YouTube channel and can be watched around the world. Generous donations from alumni and various fund raising events allow the club to use top of the line video equipment. Media 4 Carroll owns two Canon GL-2 camcorders and two Power Mac G5 computers equipped with the Final Cut Pro software suite.

The school's Latin Club functions as a local chapter of both the Ohio Junior Classical League (OJCL)[2] and National Junior Classical League (NJCL).[3]

Athletics[edit]

Carroll's mascot is the Patriot. The Carroll Patriot teams compete in the school colors of red, white, and blue. Carroll, along with rival Archbishop Alter High School, is a member of the Greater Catholic League.
