A Catholic Community
Carroll College is a welcoming and dynamic Catholic community. As a learning community, we seek to share, recognise, and promote the faith, skills, talents and abilities of all our members. We value open, affirming and life-giving relationships between staff and students.
The Carroll College community models and shares knowledge of Gospel values. These values include; respect for the life and dignity of each individual, honesty, compassion, equality, justice, and peace.
The study of Religious Education is an essential element in the Catholic Church's mission to develop the whole person, spiritually, mentally, physically, socially, and intellectually.
Learning opportunities in Religious Education allow and encourage students to question, investigate, inquire, seek answers, debate, empathise with others, and ultimately understand the role that religion and religious beliefs play in influencing world events and modern thinking.
For students seeking a personal relationship with God, as all students are encouraged to do, a program that is additional to the Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn curriculum is offered. These units are an approved curriculum written by Catholic Schools Youth Ministry Australia and have been developed to allow students a supportive environment in which to explore their faith.
As a proud Catholic community, we ensure that staff and students experience a Catholic culture that permeates the daily life of the College. As a community, we enjoy shared daily prayer, staff prayer, and prayer at all assemblies and gatherings. Mass is celebrated as a community for significant events in the liturgical calendar. A Year 7 to Year 12 Faith Formation Program is implemented annually, and a Youth Ministry group is formed through CSYMI.
