In this monumental year, our students dream of excellence in the classroom, in service to our community, and on the stage and athletic fields. 

Carlisle kicked off the new year with the annual Opening Ceremony, a long-standing tradition that recognizes the senior and first grade classes. This year, the school recognizes the graduating classes of 2024 and 2035.
