Plans for an archdiocesan high school for boys in Washington were initiated
in 1944 by the Most Reverend Michael j. Curley, Archbishop of Baltimore and
Washington. Realizing the necessity for further educational facilities to supplement
the already existing Catholic private schools, Archbishop Curley called upon the
Most Reverend John M. McNamara, Auxiliary Bishop, to head a special committee

bids were accepted, and, brick by brick, the school began to rise. The culmination
of the work of years arrived on September 9, 1951 with the dedication of Archbishop
Carroll High School.

Mass of the school year and addressing the assembled student body. He has been
an enthusiastic supporter of all our school activities. He has encouraged both students
and faculty to make of Carroll one of the finest secondary schools in the nation.
The labor of many hands went into the building of our school. With the humility
characteristic of a great leader, our Archbishop would prefer to attribute elsewhere
the credit for what has been accom-plished. But as Bishop McNamara said on the
occasion of the dedication, 'tOnly those who are acquainted with the history of the
project know how much of time, thought and labor Archbishop O'Boyle has devoted
to the planning and erection of Archbishop Carroll High School. It is his monument,
and throughout the years it will stand as a witness to his zeal in the cause of Catholic

illustrious thinker, writer, and teacher of the early
Church, have carried on the work of education in
