Our Alma Mater
We hail thee Carroll High School
Your Blue and White shall shine
Untouched by any shadow
Your colors gleam through time.
Our hearts shall sing forever
The love that makes you strong
And never bring dishonor
To your victorious throng.[3]

Our Fight Song
Fight on Tigers, we'll always stand by you.
Go you Tigers, we will ever sing

Win you tigers, our hearts will ever yearn
For the Blue and White banner waving
proudly for Carroll High![3]
