The actual cost of an Archbishop Carroll High School education is $13,500 per person for one school year.  Tuition covers 81% of that cost.  The Carroll Patriot Fund makes up the difference at approximately $2,500 per student.  Carroll has a history of keeping tuition affordable for our families.  This could not happen without your support of the Carroll Patriot Fund.

You can set-up, change or stop your gift at any time.  Consider an easy, ongoing, perpetual sustaining gift that will transform Carroll students year-round.  The recurring pledge option is available online once you select the fund.  You have control over the frequency and total occurrences for your donation.

What is the Carroll Patriot Fund?

The Carroll Patriot Fund is made up of annual gifts from alumni, parents, parents of alumni, faculty and staff, grandparents, and friends of Archbishop Carroll High School.  This ongoing support is key to the continuing operation of Archbishop Carroll High School so that the finest education possible is offered to each and every student.  These unrestricted funds are crucial to:

  • Advancing the school's Catholic mission
  • Maintaining excellent academic and extracurricular programs
  • Helping to pay teachers' salaries
  • Paying utilities and facility needs
  • Assisting with tuition assistance
  • Meeting current operating expenses

Why give to the Carroll Patriot Fund?

  • You think changing the life of a student is a pretty good return on investment.
  • You understand that giving rates affect the future of Archbishop Carroll High School.  Traditionally, strong institutions have strong annual funds.
  • You know that Archbishop Carroll High School depends on annual fund support because tuition covers only part of Carroll's yearly operating expenses.   
  • You want to give back to Carroll because Carroll has given so much to you.
  • You love Archbishop Carroll High School and are proud to be a Patriot!  You'd like others to have the same opportunities you received at your Alma Mater.
  • You want to be recognized in the Annual Review of Giving in the summer issue of Carroll’s Reflections Magazine.  By giving to the Carroll Patriot Fund, you can join in a specific giving society.
  • You’d like your class to win the class giving challenge.  This past fiscal year, the Class of 1966 achieved the highest level of participation at 25% and the Class of 1973 the second highest at 21.2%.  Which class is going to impact the most students this year?  Once again, the class with the highest level of participation at the end of the 2023-2024 fiscal year will receive $100.00 towards their next reunion.  The goal is 100% participation by all graduates; any amount will help reach this goal and truly make a difference to Archbishop Carroll High School!  Currently, the Class of 1966 is in the lead at 17.1%.  The competition isn't over until June 30th so keep up the Patriot Spirit!  Thank you for your generosity!
