Academic Calendar 2020-2021

Important Information Regarding Summer Programs

At Carrollton, we are committed to the health and well-being of our community. The Carrollton campus is currently closed until further notice. Decisions regarding camp operations will be made in conjunction with our school re-opening. Once a decision is made on the status of opening our school facility, information regarding our summer programs will be made and further information will be posted on our website and social media pages. For now, we urge you to follow the advice of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization and practice social distancing. A complete refund will be offered in the event that our summer camp is canceled. If you have any questions please contact our Summer Programs Director at ddelvalle@carrollton.orgOur Summer Scholars Program (Grades 4 – 12) will run either on campus or remotely depending on our re-opening plans in late July, early August.

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:

Summer Camp @ Carrollton: Mini Carrollton Campers (Grades Pk3- Grade 1)

These little campers will enjoy fun-filled, hands-on activities in a small nurturing environment. Each week brings a new theme to explore through arts and crafts, music and dance, games, storytelling, and much more. They will also have daily swimming instruction and water play outdoors with sprinklers and water toys. A snack is served mid-morning. Friday is “Fun Day” with bounce houses, movies, field day activities, water slides, and much more!

    Summer is a wonderful time for students to play, pray, rest, read and spend time with families; to provide some "down" time. We want to encourage the love of reading for our Montessori students and have included a guide to assist in choosing quality picture books that appeal to their various interests. Please enjoy reading these classic and new books with your daughters.

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, Marisol Hidalgo for Grades 7-12, and Michelle Berio Calderin 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.
