About St. Charles Borromeo
Bishop John Patrick Carroll named his college for the influential Archbishop of Milan, St. Charles Borromeo. It was at the Council of Trent in the 16th century that Borromeo first advocated the idea of establishing Catholic colleges that were to be sponsored by their respective dioceses. Because the new college in Helena was a diocesan college located on a lofty, beautiful hilltop, it seemed to Bishop Carroll only fitting to name the school Mount St. Charles College. That college, Bishop Carroll declared, would arm students with knowledge and virtue, in a religious atmosphere preparing them for any vocation while forever following conscience as their king. To honor Bishop Carroll, college leaders changed the school’s name to Carroll College in 1932.
