Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart is sponsored by the Society of the Sacred Heart and is part of an international network of schools in thirty-four countries. Sacred Heart schools are guided by the educational vision of Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat as articulated in the Goals and Criteria. Full time faculty members participate in forming young women of grace, grit, and gratitude by teaching five courses, providing office hours, serving as club advisors, chaperoning student trips, and fulfilling other duties assigned by the Upper School Head and the English Department Chair. We value educators who bring with them skills, talents, and interests outside of their disciplines and are willing to utilize them to better serve the Carrollton community.
