Why Our Lady of Mount Carmel School?
Our Lady of Mount Carmel School Community is a partnership of parents, students, staff and parish communities that nurtures the growth of the whole child in a Catholic faith-based education through a challenging academic environment.
In this Christ-centered atmosphere, the unique qualities of each student are recognized. Children are encouraged to be life-long learners, and are taught to be active Christian leaders throughout their lives.
