School Notes

  • Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart was founded in 1961.   Carrollton is an all-girl Catholic college preparatory day school in Coconut Grove, Florida, educating girls and young women ages 3-18. Sponsored by the Society of the Sacred Heart, Carrollton is the only pre-K-12 girls school in the state of Florida.  We develop confident young women who are responsible, creative and compassionate by encouraging them to become risk-takers, to seek challenges and to develop leadership. We are committed to excellence in education and believe that only a total education inclusive of spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical challenge can be called excellent.
