At Carrollton, we believe the future will belong to well-educated, thinking, confident people.
More importantly, we are convinced that the quality of the future depends on the choices to be made by these same people.
We want our students to become such leaders.  Nothing short of excellence in their education will prepare them to assume such leadership.
Only a total education inclusive of spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical challenge can be called excellent.
We engage in this education as a member of the Network of Sacred Heart Schools.
Together we share a commitment to the goals and criteria of Sacred Heart education.
The five goals of Sacred Heart education give vitality to Carrollton. All of our educators, students, parents, alumnae share in the commitment to educate to a personal and active faith in God; a deep respect for intellectual values; a social awareness that impels to action; the building of community as a Christian value; and personal growth in an atmosphere of wise freedom.
