Carrollton Virtual Admissions Center



Guidance for Prospective and Future Students

In the interest of the wellbeing of our students, families, faculty, staff, alumnae, and the Miami community, Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart is currently operating on a remote-learning model. Students have moved to our remote-learning classrooms and classes are not being held on either campus.

The Carrollton Admission Office remains open and we are accepting late applications for the 2020-2021 school year. We are also available to digitally connect with prospective families.

While the Carrollton campus is temporarily closed, our admissions staff are still available to meet by phone and online.

Schedule a Phone Meeting with a Carrollton Admissions Staff Member

We are here to help! Families who need a one-on-one meeting with our admissions staff to talk about unique circumstances or next-step conversations should consider scheduling a phone meeting individually with our admissions staff.  You can schedule a phone meeting with our admissions staff by email at admissions@carrollton.org. Please let us know what grade your daughter will be applying to and give us a couple of times and dates that you are available.

Virtual Application Process

At this time we are accepting applications to be considered for rolling admissions. Interviews and entrance exams will only be administered if space becomes available. If space does not become available, the applicant may decide to roll the application over to the following admission season. All school records must then be updated with current information. Acceptance may be offered to a qualified late applicant.

The following items are required before the Admission Committee can consider an applicant’s file complete:

  • Application Form:
                                      

  • Academic Records including Standardized Test Scores and Teacher Recommendations: Carrollton requires two recommendations for Grades Montessori - Grade 4 (Principal and Teacher recommendations), three recommendations for Grades 6-11 (Principle, Math and English Teacher recommendations) and records for the past 4 years your daughter has been in school, which must be submitted electronically by the student's current school, however, the parents are responsible for requesting the recommendations through School Recs. The recommendations and records must be requested online. You will need the recommender's first and last name, as well as their email addresses for recommendation submission.
  • Academic/Family Interview: If space becomes available, we will schedule the academic/family interview. All interviews will be hosted on Zoom or Google Meet.
  • Entrance Examination/Assessment:
    • Grades M3-4th Grade: If space becomes available and the application file is complete, a virtual admissions assessment will be scheduled by the Admissions Office.
    • Grades 5-11: Carrollton will accept The Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) and/or the Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT). ISEE is offering families a secure, online, remotely-proctored option that enables students to take the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) in their homes at a time that is convenient for their schedules. To register for the ISEE or the SSAT please contact their offices directly by logging into www.iseetest.org or www.ssat.org.

Why a Sacred Heart School?

Since 1800, when St. Madeleine Sophie Barat founded the Society of the Sacred Heart in France, Religious of the Society of the Sacred Heart and lay Sacred Heart educators have carried out her imperative of educational excellence. Today, the Network of Sacred Heart schools is an association of 22 Catholic schools across the United States and nearly 150 schools internationally. Independent yet united in spirit and purpose, the international community of Schools of the Sacred Heart believes in educating the whole child and preparing her to live fully and wisely. At the core of the Sacred Heart education, the Goals and Criteria are the principles that express the intentions and hopes of our 200-year tradition.

Carrollton's culture and identity are bound inextricably to the vision set forth in the Goals of Sacred Heart Schools. These values form the moral compass that influences the choices made within our community. Learning to draw upon these values during their school days, Carrollton graduates become women of conviction, courage, and confidence.
