Every student to us is a unique and worth individual with great potential waiting to be discovered and harnessed. We value and encourage creativity and we provide a loving and supportive environment where every student can feel successful as a person. We firmly believe that a young person learns from his or her total experience of the school setting, so we strive to address the religious, academic, social, psychological, and physical development of the young person through the school's programs, courses and policies. We foster lifelong faith, learning, and development of an individual's talents and skills. Carmel Catholic is primarily a college preparatory school, providing a program of excellence for students. In addition to being an academic institution, we are a community which fosters respect for diversity, mutual growth and development. This Carmel Catholic community extends the challenge to lead productive lives which reflect religious and civic values.

Excellent college prep school that has broad academic, athletic and fine arts programs. Both of my children attend and they really enjoy going to school and have grown from their experiences. The support from teachers, counselors and fellow students and parents provides a community of learners. School spirit is strong and is thankful for the commitment from Carmel to provide the best educational experience in Lake County, IL.

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!
