The actress grew up in a loving home in The Sunshine State. After graduating from St. Hugh School and the Miami-based Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart, Sofia decided to pursue a Major in Communication and did so at UCLA, for which she moved to Los Angeles at 18.
Sofia even minored in French during her college years and was a part of the IMPAC Youth Ensemble program under Motion Dance Studio, which enabled her to participate in competitions throughout the country.

Is Sofia Carson Dating Anyone?
Unfortunately, Sofia has always refrained from discussing her love life in private and prefers to keep her dating history under wraps. However, this did not succeed in dissuading people from linking her with various actors over the years. Perhaps the biggest speculation about Sofia’s significant other rose in 2016 when she was linked with actress Sofía Vergara’s son, Manolo Gonzalez. The rumors surfaced when Sofia posted an adorable picture of herself with Manolo in December 2016.
Over a year later, in early 2018, Manolo documented how he was squatting while holding Sofia in his arms. While their fans expressed their desire for the two to engage in a romantic relationship, neither of the two confirmed or refuted the assumptions, and the rumors gradually subsided as the days passed. As things stand now, Manolo and Sofia seem to be nothing more than good friends.
To this day, Sofia remains determined to keep her personal life intimate. In a January 2022 interview with Extra TV, the actress elaborated on her “absolutely intentional” decision not to divulge details about her private life in public. She declared, “To me, it’s about my art and the music and the films that I put out into the world and not about my personal life. I still do love sharing personal moments that are special to me with fans, but it was definitely a choice to keep my private life private.” Thus, from the looks of it, Sofia Carson is currently single and busy furthering her already illustrious career.
