Our purpose is to proclaim joyfully the Gospel message, foster communication and motivate to serve by providing a quality Christian education based on the realization that spiritual and moral development is a living and dynamic search for truth.
We believe that search begins and is sustained in the family and should be expanded and complemented in the school and parish community.
Entrusted with the children - each unique and precious to the Creator - we face the task of nurturing faith and inspiring, bringing forth and guiding the special gifts with which each child is blessed.
We are dedicated to making the experience at Mt.
Carmel a positive one, full of challenge and support.
We are constantly attuned to the individual needs and gifts of our students and committed to creating an educational environment which prepares them for the challenges of an ever changing world.
Through the visible interaction and positive witness of the home, school, and parish community, we aim for the total development and well-being of each student.

KINDERGARTEN - GRADE 5 Who said elementary school students are too young to make a difference? Mount Carmel's Lower School students take action. Whether they buy 200 acres of Brazilian rain forest to Save the Trees or participate in a Read-A-Thon to communicate with international authors, Mount Carmel Kids make things happen. In a nurturing environment, a caring faculty encourages the students to learn in all they do. With this holistic approach to education, children develop a strong sense of service and self. They discover their talents as they explore the world around them. Some of the highlights in the lower school program include: Ã¯Â¿Â½cutting edge technology which supports the curriculum Ã¯Â¿Â½hands-on learning Ã¯Â¿Â½participation in prayer services Ã¯Â¿Â½advisor groups Ã¯Â¿Â½opportunities to develop social skills Ã¯Â¿Â½conflict resolution Ã¯Â¿Â½respect for others and the environment MIDDLE SCHOOL Adolescence is a time of dynamic change.
