At Carroll we believe that your dreams are what make the future so exciting.  We also feel that your investment in your future is important. Your dreams are also important to the faculty you will work closely with to achieve them; the staff who will assist you as you move through your college career; and to the students who will be a part of the Carroll Community that you learn and grow in. The value of a Carroll education will take you far beyond the 85 acres of our beautiful campus; it will shape you, guide your decisions, and it will make a difference in your life. . . for the rest of your life.  “Non Scholae Sed Vitae” our motto, means “Not for school, but for Life”.  At Carroll, we know that your investment will be the foundation of your dreams, and have a value far beyond anything you can put a price on. You will make a difference, and at Carroll – we are here to help you achieve your dreams, and so much more!
