Carroll School Virtual Admissions
We welcome you to our 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. We also invite you to join us for a Virtual Information Session (dates below).
Below, you will learn about what school looks like this year; 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.
Note about Academic Year 2021-2022
We are optimistic that Carroll School will be fully on-campus for the Academic Year 2021-2022. Our leadership team is committed to delivering the highest quality academic program while upholding its commitment to health and safety. We continue to refine our on-campus and hybrid approaches for a seamless fully synchronous school experience. When applying, please know that every child will receive a robust, individualized Carroll education, whether the instruction is in person, remote, or a combination.
To join a new school is one thing, to join during a global pandemic could be quite another. However, the experience has been amazing! Every day our child is engaged, focused and motivated. Thank you for everything you bring to the students each day.
-Kate and Christoph Schadinger, 6th Grade Parents
Academic Plan 2020-2021
Carroll is committed always to providing an individualized, guided, and robust education that meets the unique needs of each student. That mission does not change. How we deliver on that is ever evolving. Certainly, the pandemic this year creates challenges to how we would ideally approach this task. In July, we issued a new education plan that would seamlessly deliver learning whether remote, in-person, or somewhere in between.

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.
