Our Philosophy

We believe that St. Mary of Mt. Carmel Catholic School is a community of learners. We believe that each child is capable of learning, and we strive to help each child reach his/her academic potential.

We believe that St. Mary of Mt. Carmel Catholic School provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere in which each child is respected and cared for. We value the uniqueness of each individual that makes up our school family, and we appreciate the involvement of our families and volunteers.

We believe that faith in Jesus Christ is the key to our success as Christians, and we provide faith development to our students and staff. We recognize families as the first teachers of this faith journey.

We believe in high academic standards with an emphasis on lifelong skills that will prepare our students to be purposeful thinkers, effective communicators, self-directed learners, and responsible stewards of Christ.
