Welcome to OLMC!

Our Lady of Mount Carmel School is a Catholic Preschool – 8 elementary school nestled in a quiet neighborhood in Redwood City. Part of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, Mount Carmel has been educating local children since 1885. The school building, playground, gym, science center, after-school care, and Preschool facilities are contained within our gated and secure campus.

For over 135 years, we have educated over thousands of students in the rich, Catholic tradition of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. Each year, many Our Lady of Mount Carmel School’s graduates choose to continue their Catholic education and are accepted into the Catholic college preparatory high school of their choice. These schools include Junipero Serra, Notre Dame, Mercy, St. Francis, Bellarmine, Woodside Priory, and Sacred Heart Prep.

Our students continue their higher education and graduate from colleges such as Stanford, Dartmouth, Cornell, California Polytechnic University, Gonzaga, Loyola Marymount, and various CSU and University of California campuses including Berkeley, Santa Barbara, Davis, Chico, and San Diego, to name just a few.
