Philosophy

 The Mount Carmel School Community is committed to the work of the Church through the ministry of education. Its special goal is to “announce the message revealed by God which the Church proclaims; build fellowship in the life of the Spirit; give service to the Christian community and to the entire community.” (To Teach as Jesus Did, #14)


Mount Carmel strives to teach the individual to seek the good in all people by helping students develop social acceptance of others regardless of race, color, creed, handicap, national origin, or financial status, in a safe, peaceful environment.
Through the educational process Mount Carmel nourishes self-esteem as well as humility in each individual and continues the development of Christian values and God-given talents begun in the home. Self-discipline is recognized as a prime factor in keeping alive the enthusiasm for learning.


The greatest accomplishment Mount Carmel can achieve is to foster in partnership with the parents the spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional and physical development of each student, which will enable each to grow into a mature and active Catholic parishioner, capable of serving God, country, and others, now and in the future.
