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-K)

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!

  • Montessori Summer Reading

    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, 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.
