Our Lady Of Mount Carmel School

The task of educating children is a God-given responsibility to parents.
The school is in existence to assist parents in this awesome task, but not to be a substitute for parental efforts.

OLMC is a wonderful faith-filled environment to send your child to. The faculty knows all the students and parents well and does their best to give your child the individual attention they need. OLMC has a strong academic program preparing its students to apply to the local private Catholic high schools. Students will have many opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities. OLMC has a robust athletic program and after-school activities. There is something for all students, sports, guitar club, yearbook club, choir, scouts, little flowers, and more.

We love Our Lady of Mount Carmel School. I love the small campus and class sizes, the preschool-8 age range, and the Catholic identity that permeates every aspect of school life. The academics are strong and their education is well-rounded in the arts, STEM, and athletics, along with opportunities to serve others on and off campus. Best of all, OLMC is a community of caring friends and family where all of my children have thrived.

We have two children at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic School and we can't imagine having them anywhere else. The school community is amazing whether your children are in preschool or K-8. Our children feel very loved and encouraged by the teachers, aides, and administration. From academics which include reading specialists and math specialists to a guidance counselor and a robust athletics program, OLMC has everything. Most importantly - at the heart of it all - is the Catholic faith with weekly Mass, rosary, adoration, and children-leading prayer. If you are considering Catholic education, you will want to schedule a tour of OLMC. We love it!
