Since 1800, when St. Madeleine Sophie Barat founded the Society of the Sacred Heart in France, Religious of the Society of the Sacred Heart and lay Sacred Heart educators have carried out her imperative of educational excellence. Today, the Network of Sacred Heart schools is an association of 25 Catholic schools across the United States and Canada, and nearly 150 schools internationally. Independent yet united in spirit and purpose, the international community of Schools of the Sacred Heart believes in educating the whole child, and preparing her to live fully and wisely. At the core of the Sacred Heart education the Goals and Criteria are the principles that express the intentions and hopes of our 200-year tradition.
Carrollton's culture and identity are bound inextricably to the vision set forth in the Goals and Criteria of Sacred Heart Schools. These values form the moral compass that influence the choices made within our community. Learning to draw upon these values during their school days, Carrollton graduates become women of conviction, courage and confidence.
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 Co-Directors of RECS Education. Carrollton values 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.
