SJS Alumnus 2010-17
Carson Ching, a sophomore at Saint Xavier High School in Louisville, credits the high level academics at SJS for his success.
“They helped me earn high scores on standardized testing and the placement test for high school that allowed me to receive a merit scholarship,” Carson said.
Carson received national recognition with Duke TIP ACT and is a Xavier Scholar and academic scholarship recipient. He’s also involved in Junior Varsity and Varsity Academic Teams/Quick Recall, Math Team, Liturgical Music Ensemble, History Club and the Environmental Club at St. X.
“I greatly enjoyed my time at SJS for various reasons,” Carson said. “There was a good mix of both fun and serious learning that kept me engaged in my studies. I made many friends and was motivated and challenged to learn many interesting things in the classroom at SJS.”
Carson also credits SJS for giving him the confidence to pursue and achieve leadership roles – such as Speaker of the House at Kentucky Youth Assembly his freshman year of high school.
“SJS is a place where seeds of faith and knowledge were planted in me for many years to come,” he said. “The emphasis on faith and service enriched my understanding of the Catholic Church and showed me that success is not just measured in personal accomplishments but in how one helps others.”
Carson lives in Louisville with his parents, Robert and Mary Ching.
