After Carroll

Even before a student starts at Carroll School, parents ask the question, "Where does my child go after Carroll?"

High School Placements

For some Carroll families of graduating 8th graders, Carroll's Upper School is the best placement. In the Upper School students benefit from the continuity of customized learning that also prepares them incredibly well for the rigors of high school and opens up next school options that were previously out of reach.

Other Carroll graduates attend a variety of high school types including public, technical, agricultural, charter, religious, and independent day and boarding schools. In addition to more than 60 public high schools and 15 vocational/technical schools, our graduates have gone onto the following independent high schools in the past 5 years.
