Our Lady of Mount Carmel School is dedicated to the education of those children who are entrusted to our care. In the recent year, our student enrollment has increased steadily. With marketing and recruitment ongoing, our school is drawing families from the local area who are seeking a quality education for their children. We remain committed to these criteria:
The religious and academic program offered at Mount Carmel is outstanding. Most of you know that in 07-08 three of our sixth graders won first place in the northeast region in a science, math, and technology competition. We are also proud that our tuition remains the lowest in this area. Each and every day, we demonstrate to the community at large that we are distinctly Catholic and truly excellent. Many of you have seen the new technology we have to stimulate and educate our students. We now have new Smart Boards for teacher use. Many software programs that enhance and challenge learners in various subject areas are networked throughout the school. "Traveling" wireless laptops are used throughout the school in addition to the work stations in the computer lab. A new web-based reading program, Accelerated Reader, plus English in a Flash for our ESL students are having a positive impact. Our challenge is still with the third category. Finances are always difficult.
As a family, you know first hand how expensive it is to pay utility bills, which seem to grow each month. As an employer, we must address pay raises and health benefits for our faculty. As a community, we understand that you sacrifice to bring your children to us so they may have a quality education in a safe environment.
The total cost of educating a student at Our Lady of Mount Carmel is $4200.00. Tuition is determined per student on a sliding scale by school administration.
