An International Baccalaureate World School since April 2005, Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart is a member of the Florida Council of Independent Schools (FCIS), the professional education association for independent schools throughout Florida, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), and the Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (CASI), the National Coalition of Girls' Schools (NCGS), the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), and the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA).

This is an incredibly exciting time at Carrollton. Framed by their Goals & Criteria, and after a thoughtful planning process, the Board of Trustees recently approved a new dual leadership structure: Inaugural President and Head of School. Under this new leadership structure, senior executive functions are aligned around two distinct school life facets: institutional capacity (Inaugural President) and instructional leadership (Head of School). Carrollton will now join a growing list of other network schools that have adopted this relationship-driven and collaborative model for school leadership to expand the breadth and depth of expertise at the highest level of the organization.
