OLMC STRONG students at work and at play!

OLMC STRONG students at work and at play!

The mission of Our Lady of Mount Carmel School (OLMC) is to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ, our foundation and inspiration. In partnership with families, students learn about the person of Jesus, worship as members of the Church community, and offer service to the less fortunate. OLMC School seeks to educate the whole child through its strong academic program and to enrich the total person through co-curricular and extracurricular activities.

Students are the reason that OLMC exists. Every academic program, social-emotional initiative, professional development workshop, and liturgical service is carefully planned with the goal of meeting the mission of the school. Despite living in a locale with a strong public school system, parents choose to send their children to OLMC because they believe that ours is a family-centered, academically strong, and spiritually vibrant community.

On every level, the OLMC community promotes academic excellence while recognizing that success only happens when student individuality is recognized and appreciated. With the support of the principal, faculty members strive to create content-rich and student-centered experiences. Personalized learning plans, reinforced by parental support and encouragement, meet the needs of the diverse population of students. Teachers strive for continual improvement, and the small class size and low teacher to student ratio positively impact the students.

The success of OLMC School is directly related to the investment of the people who care deeply for its students and their impact on our society as they step forward to lead and serve future generations.
