Carroll Springs School has two very different student populations in the same building. The public separate day school is for students who need special education, have multiple severe disabilities and chronic health issues and who are between three and twenty-one years old. All students receive instruction in the Maryland College and Career Readiness State Standards and participate in all age-appropriate local and state assessments.

All classes at Carroll Springs School offer a low student to adult ratio, a highly structured classroom routine and carefully planned differentiated instruction. 

The Carroll Springs School campus also houses other Carroll County Public Schools programs including Partners for Success, the CCPS Assistive Technology Team, and CCPS Post Secondary Programs. 


Our vision is for Carroll Springs School to be a learning community where all learners receive the resources and supports necessary for continuous improvement.

Our mission is to provide a high quality educational experience where each learner’s basic needs are met and supports are provided that contribute to high academic achievement and life skill development.


Carroll County Public Schools (CCPS) performed testing for lead in the drinking water at all of their facilities during the months of November and December.   The results for Carroll Springs School are posted here.
