Secondary School Advising

Even before a student starts at Carroll School, parents ask the question, "Where does my child go after Carroll's 8th grade?"

Carroll graduates attend a variety of high school types including public, technical, agricultural, charter, religious, private day, and boarding schools. Like our mission, we aim to send students to a school that best meets their needs.

For some families, the simple answer is Carroll's Upper School. In the Upper School, students benefit from the continuity of 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.

Our Secondary School Advising team is here to support families as they research, visit, apply, and choose the right next step for their children.
