Letter from Head Master Olen Kalkus
Dear Carrollton Friends,
I welcome you to our school and invite you to browse our online footprint. Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart is a community inextricably bound by the educational imperatives clearly outlined by our foundress, St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, over 200 years ago. We are a family of Christ’s Heart in Miami. The distinctive spirit of Sacred Heart education addresses the student’s total development: spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical. Through these website pages you will have an opportunity to become acquainted with the depth of our spiritual life, our expectations of academic rigor, the systems we support for age appropriate emotional development and intelligence, and the passion for well-being and athletic excellence introduced to all our students.
We view education as a means to an end and, in the spirit of the Sacred Heart, that end is to make God’s love known in the world. As they grow in their self-understanding as God’s Beloved, Carrollton students are given the foundation to be thoughtful women of courage and confidence. They will work on behalf of others, strengthen their community and root themselves and their families in principles that will sustain them for life.
I encourage you to become acquainted with our culture and our school’s atmosphere. Through the traditions, the everyday life and the relationships herein showcased, you will glimpse the strength and value of the ideals we hold dear and true.
