Carrollton’s Summer Programs provide your child with a high quality, safe and fun learning environment. Our summer programs provide all campers with an exciting and enriching summer experience under the supervision of a well-trained and experienced staff. We create a unique environment where children have an opportunity to learn from new experiences, to grow, to make new friends, and to develop important social skills that will last a lifetime. Children have an opportunity to participate in the following camp experiences:

Debate Camp by Carrollton Debate Teachers (Grades 7-9)
The Carrollton Cyclone Debate Camp will provide young women entering their 7th, 8th, or 9th-grade year the opportunity to complete a one-week seminar with Carrollton’s Director of Debate Dana Randall and Assistant Debate Coach David Heidt. The seminar will focus on providing a primer for students interested in cross-examination style debate. The seminar will also introduce students to the 2019-2020 national policy debate topic, which discusses United States federal government’s immigration policy.

                                                  Volleyball by Carrollton Athletics (Grades 6-8)
Held in our state of the art Wellness Center, our volleyball program provides high-level instruction from experienced coaches to help athletes elevate their game and focus on specific skill development in a competitive and fun environment.

Required Forms for Students

Summer Academic Preparation

Summer is a wonderful time for students to play, pray, rest, read and spend time with families; to provide some ‘down’ time. We are certain that your summer plans will include enriching learning activities for your daughters. In order to keep their reading skills sharp over the upcoming months, we will have required summer reading activities.  In August, the teachers will collect and review the work completed over the summer. We know that this reinforcement will continue to help them grow as learners. We are looking forward to seeing your family in August.

Mentor Program

The Mentor Program is a program to help new families (Mentees) in adjusting to life at Carrollton.  The program is set up to help pass along the special heritage of Sacred Heart, the importance of the Goals and Criteria, and what it means to be part of our family.  We have two wonderful parents who will be our Mentor Liaisons, Cecilia Pino for Grades 7-12 and Marta Sacasa-Torres for Grades M3-6.  Their job is to ensure that the families connect and share with the Mentors on the happenings at the school.  Mentors will be assigned in May with intentions that they reach out to the Mentees before summer.

Cecilia Pino and Marta Sacasa-Torres
