A Message from Tim & Jason

Thank you for visiting the Carlthorp School website.  We wanted to take a moment to reflect on our 6th Grade students’ service learning trip to Washington, D.C., with KidUnity this past year. What an experience they had!  We are so grateful to KidUnity co-founders and Carlthorp parents, Peter Sheehy and David Snow, for putting together such an enriching 72 hours for our students, and to our 6th Grade teachers who prepared our students for this experience. Our students certainly maximized the opportunity to learn, to advocate, to explore, and to have fun in D.C.

We invite you to follow the KidUnity and Carlthorp School Twitter feeds to see for yourself how incredibly thought provoking the trip was.

Some of the highlights from the trip included:


Policy Experts:

Law Makers:  


Foreign Embassies:

And Fun!:

This was a jam-packed and educational trip, to say the least.  In addition, six 6th Graders ran a CS Newsroom on campus, reporting on the experiences of their classmates in Washington, D.C. We are equally as proud of these students who learned how to be journalists in a short time period. Their assignment was to create five broadcasts over the course of the trip that were sent to all our classrooms for discussion.

Special thanks to Janice Min and Lee Jenkins for helping our students hone their reporting skills, and to Mr. Porter, Mrs. Sasso, Dr. Johnson, Mrs. Pollack, Mr. Moriarity, and Mrs. Truong for keeping the CS Newsroom running and meeting its deadlines!

Please take a moment to explore our website to learn more about what Carlthorp School has to offer, our fine arts program, athletics, after-school offerings, and be sure to read the outstanding bios of our faculty and staff for the 2017-2018 school year!

We hope you agree that Carlthorp School is a special place, and we are thrilled that you are visiting our website. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call, email, or visit.
