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: Mighty Carrollton Campers (Grades 1-3) 
Our Camp Carrollton program is quite unlike any other. Designed to be age-appropriate, we offer fun, exciting opportunities that give children a chance to explore new topics each week through different mediums! They will also have daily swimming instruction and water play outdoors. Friday is “Fun Day” with bounce houses, movies, field day activities, water slides, and much more!  Lunch is included.
 
Academic SuperCamp (Grades 1-3)
This program is ideal for those children and parents who want to bridge the summer learning gap! At SuperCamp, our curriculum is about making learning fun and engaging. This half-day session provides an opportunity for students to advance their Math or Creative Writing Skills.
 
STEM Adventures by Awesome Science (Grades 1-5)
Our camp offers the best opportunity for the children to explore, experiment, investigate, create, invent and discover through unique and exciting hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) activities! Children will incorporate new experiences that will become the foundation for more complex concepts introduced later in their schooling. We will fill our days with mysterious energies, super connectors, atomic bubbles, mega magnetism, huge fountains, biophysics and many more super cool activities. We invite your children to be a part of the best STEM Adventures to Play + Think + Learn!!
 
Art Box: “Miami’s Art Scene” (Grades 1-3)
Have you ever wondered where some of the best art in Miami can be found? Who are some of today’s most renowned artists? Where are the newest, most innovative pieces as well as timeless, precious collections of the greats? Join Art Box’s summer program, “Miami’s Art Scene,” as we learn about some of Miami’s best venues for Contemporary Art. We will be learning and creating art projects about current and past exhibitions from the Perez Art Museum, the Bakehouse, and the Rubell Family Collection and gathering inspiration to create our own unique masterpieces! Camp includes daily swim instruction and outdoor playground time.
 
Clay Modeling and Character Design by Clay World (Grades 1-3)
This workshop explores the art of Clay Modeling and Character Design by using your hands as sculpting tools and modeling clay as the media. This course will improve student’s fine motor skills and artistic capabilities. Different techniques such as pointillism, spreads, textured clay among others will be implemented.

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. Below is a summer reading list with suggested books for your daughter to enjoy over the summer. 

In the summer, many skills that children have learned throughout the school year can be forgotten. It is often referred to as summer learning loss, proving that these skills must be practiced. It is our hope, that during summer, our students will continue to practice the skills introduced, developed and even those mastered throughout the school year.

This summer we are asking students to continue this practice by working individually or by using various online resources using the link provided above. 

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.
