Extraordinary! Worth every penny. My child is soaring academically. Most teachers have a master's degree; some are Ph.Ds. Certain AP classes now book as actually college credit at Loyola University. Great sports programs. All freshman take the pre-ACT for free. My child can't wait to go to school. The service hours helped him grow morally, and he really enjoyed the opportunities. He has joined several academic teams. My son is finally challenged. He is taking junior-level math, and is on the Honors track; the public high school would have tracked him as college prep. He is on track for the Ivies. Nicest parents and students. No drama. Worth every penny. Come shadow at Carmel and see what your child achieves!

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
