Best school for developing every area of a students life. Competitive in all areas. Quality academics, great drama department and very competitive athletic program. Spirituality is the center of all things at Cathedral Carmel and the leadership from the Priests to the teachers is outstanding. They are approachable and relatable to the students. Finally, the students graduate well equipped for high school and life with the pride and traditions of having experienced an institution that has been in existence over 175 years. We had difficulty getting a spot for our children, while all other schools in the area had plenty of room. I suppose this is a testament to the greatness of the school. Advice: get your children on the list asap.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
