Carrick High School was built during the period of Carrick Borough and its first graduating class was in 1926. But before Carrick became a borough, it was Baldwin Township. Before it decided it needed a high school of its own, Carrick High School was housed in the old Concord Presbyterian Church which was built in 1884. In 1915 the new church was built and the older Concord Church burned down in 1924. In between then the high school children of Carrick most likely went to Union High School in Knoxville Borough, which at that time, was exclusive and properous. In between 1915 and 1926 there is a time when the Concord Church Carrick High School became no more and the 1926 date of the first graduation in the new, now existing, high school.
