Early Access Open House

08/07/2018 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Attend the Early Access Open House on August 7 at 7:00 pm in Trinity Hall. Both Helena Public Schools and Carroll staff will be on hand to answer questions about classes, scheduling, and registration.

The Program

The Carroll Early Access program provides an authentic, on-campus college experience for local Helena students tuition-free. High school juniors and seniors may take up to two classes per semester from the approved course list. Most courses are three credits but those that offer a lab component will be four credits. Classes will be taught by Carroll's outstanding professors and you will learn alongside current Carroll students on Carroll's campus. Students who complete the courses will receive Carroll College credits, which can be used at Carroll to pursue a future degree or transferred to another institution. While tuition is free, there is a nominal $60 student fee per semester and some classes have an additional course fee (such as labs) to cover supplies. In addition to these fees, students are responsible for the purchase of their own books and supplies. Families are responsible for the student's transportation to and from campus.

Additional Benefits

Students enrolled in the program will be issued a Carroll ID that will provide access to Carroll's Corette Library as well as Carroll home athletic and performing arts events. Students will be invited to attend lectures and other academic events available to all Carroll students. A parking pass will also be provided for students to park in specified areas on campus.

All Helena community members are invited to a dinner co-sponsored by Carroll College Engineers without Borders (EWB) and The Julius Foundation, in honor of Fr.

Julius, there will be an update on the EWB team’s clean-water project for Holy Trinity School and the village of Kawango, as well as a report on the Helena Rotary Club’s project to provide the school with electricity and computer access.  Carroll students and Helena residents have been collaborating with Fr. Julius on these projects in rural Uganda since 2015.

The dinner features barbecued chicken and smoked beef brisket with summer salads.  Tickets, which must be purchased by August 10, are $20 for adults ($10 for children 12 and under), and can be obtained either at Trinity Books and Gifts, by sending an e-mail request to, or by mailing a check with requested number to The Julius Foundation at 3312 Dunlap Drive, Helena, MT 59602.

Magician and Entertainer John Rotellini
08/19/2018 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

Join us for a fun and entertaining evening in the Upper Campus Center with magician, entertainer, and comedian John Rotellini. Families welcome.

Bio from

"Modern culture is filled with escapes from reality - from video games to television and film, seeing the extraordinary has become common place. Very rarely though, do we see this happen in a live environment.

Since 2005, John Rotellini has captivated audiences around the world by doing the impossible.  A childhood love for magic paired with an eclectic collection of interests led John to develop what has become an obsession.  By merging sleight of hand magic and illusions with other disciplines - psychology, con artistry, film, music and theatre, John has created live, interactive events that more closely resemble Hollywood blockbusters rather than traditional magic shows.  No longer is the world of the impossible limited to the silver screen.

John now resides in Las Vegas, Nevada where he can be found performing select dates in some of the Strip's most critically acclaimed productions and entertaining some of today's hottest stars when not on his own U.S. Tours.

Whether it be performing live in front of thousands, entertaining small groups or executing death-defying large scale stunts,  John's performances will be sure to leave you speechless. After all, how often do you get to live the impossible?"
