Mission & Philosophy


Our Lady of Mount Carmel School’s mission is to develop students with creative minds, a sense of purpose, compassion for others and the courage to act on their Catholic beliefs.


As part of a Roman Catholic parish, Our Lady of Mount Carmel School serves a diverse community. Our beliefs are rooted in the understanding that each child is a creation of God. In accordance with the Gospel message, students are challenged to grow spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and physically.

With parents as primary educators and teachers as partners, we foster independent thinking and facilitate academic achievement. We worship together and practice social justice in an environment that encourages our students to go forth with confidence and respect for themselves and the larger community
