College Counseling

Our priority at Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School is to provide our students and their families with the fundamental tools necessary for a successful transition into their college experience. Our institution is committed to high academic standards and student achievement, and most importantly, providing a Christ-Centered learning environment to all our students. Carroll students begin to Create their Legacy here and after they move onto their next chapter of life.

Carroll students are offered year-round programming targeted at navigating the college process such as College Application Bootcamps, Annual College Fair, multiple College visits, participation in National College Application initiatives, and much more.

Students in grade 9th – 12th receive access to Naviance, a service where they can receive information about upcoming events, local and national scholarship opportunities, take personality and strength assessments, match with colleges that provide their career interests, and other resources for college and career information. Current students can access their account using this link:

A Carroll College Handbook has been created to aide all students in their college journey and to educate parents as well. The handbook is linked below and includes important terminology, links, step by step guidelines, and much more to answer any questions you might have.

  • Although some institutions have eliminated test requirements, Carroll students are still urged to prepare and sit down for the ACT and/or SAT. Standardized tests remain a requirement among the Florida State University System and to qualify for the Bright Futures Scholarship. Below are the testing dates for this academic year. Additionally, students in the 11th and 12th grade are given the opportunity to sit down for the ACT and SAT, respectively, during a designated school day.
