Caroline Center

The Caroline Center is a learning and career center in Baltimore, Maryland. Caroline Center was founded in 1996 on the bold vision of Mother Caroline Friess (1824-1892), the woman who established the School Sisters of Notre Dame in North America and whose passion for education and deep concern for persons whom society had marginalized remains central to their mission. We are proud of our commitment to women and commitment to work.
