The formation of students as disciples of Jesus occurs during the sacred liturgy, in the classroom, on the playing field, on the performance stage and everywhere a Bishop Carroll student interacts with the community. The Eucharist is the source of the summit of our lives. Students and faculty participate in daily Mass, the sacrament of confession, Eucharistic adoration, retreats, prayer throughout the day, and stewardship to family, parish and the community. Religion classes are taken each semester, taught with great fidelity to our Holy Mother Church. We strive to build up the Body of Christ by forming disciples to carry out the New Evangelization. In September 1962, Bishop Mark K. Carroll established an all-boys high school in order to meet the growing needs of Wichita’s west side parishes. Notre Dame High School was located at 3100 W. Douglas, in a property formerly occupied by Mt. Carmel Academy. Father Eugene Gerber was among the first full-time teachers for the 1962-1963 school year, which opened with a single freshman class of 180 boys. On September 6, 1964, Notre Dame High School moved to a brand new state-of-the art facility at 8101 W. Central and was officially rechristened Bishop Mark K. Carroll High School. Classes in the new building began two days later with the St. Louis-based Christian Brothers staffing the school and living on campus. September 1966 saw the newly-created Madonna High School open its own brand new building at 340 N. Tyler, taking in 628 girls from Sacred Heart Academy and St. Mary’s High School. The staff was comprised of sisters from the Adorers of the Blood of Christ and the Congregation of St. Joseph. In the spring of 1971, the Madonna High School building was sold to USD 259 and the girls joined the boys of Bishop Carroll at 8101 W. Central, forming a student body of 1,006 young men and women.
