Carroll School Virtual Admissions


We welcome you to our new Virtual Admissions page. Though nothing can truly replace meeting you and your child in person and strolling around our school, we hope this page will give you a feel for the vibrancy of the Carroll community.

Below, you will learn about our plans for Fall 2020 (whether in person or remote); understand who a Carroll student is and how we give each child what they most need; take a look inside our schools, from the perspectives of a few of our current students; hear how our teachers approach learning differently; and much more.


Please know we are here to help you with any aspect of the admissions process or to speak with you in advance of applying.

A new Learning Plan for Fall 2020

What does Fall 2020 look like at Carroll School? Steve Wilkins shares a new approach to delivering education to students whether we are remote, in person, or a hybrid approach. (Note: Originally recorded for a Lower School audience but plan is relevant for every grade.)

Student Learning Profile

Though we educate one type of learner, they are not all the same. We have 442 unique versions of this learner. Learn about the general learning profile of a Carroll School student.

HOW We Give Each Child

How do we go about giving each child what they most need? Rigorous and unbelievably thoughtful, careful analysis goes into grouping and creating a customized education plan for each student.

I’ve found it just to be a totally “arms around you” type of school. I’m sure everybody has many options, and I’m sure many options would be lovely, but I don’t think you meet anybody who would say it didn’t change their life to have their kiddo at Carroll.

Cara Shortsleeve, 2nd Grade Parent

The level and quality of the academics is really impressive. That is something that I’m very grateful to Carroll for. In addition to teaching our kids how to cope with dyslexia, teachers are doing it with this underlying assumption that kids are ready for rigorous learning.

Emma Stillman, 8th Grade Parent

Thanks to Carroll, my son is going to have a successful happy life. Everything you claim you do, you did for him. It’s been absolutely miraculous. I think that Carroll School is a special, special place.

Mary Kate McGowan, 9th Grade Parent
