About Us

Mt. Carmel-Holy Rosary School acts as a beacon of hope for the children of East Harlem, providing a superior education for over sixty years. Founded in 1949, the school gives Pre-K3 through eighth grade students a myriad of academic and enrichment opportunities.

As a small Catholic school with one class per grade and an average classroom size of 24 students, Mt. Carmel-Holy Rosary feels like a close-knit family. At MCHR we believe that each student has the potential to achieve and succeed. All children receive the personalized attention they deserve in our nurturing and safe environment. Grounded in Catholic beliefs, MCHR relies on this foundation to instill values and a respect for tradition in our young learners.

Mt. Carmel-Holy Rosary School provides outstanding academic programs coupling the best of current teaching and technology in a structured environment. By engaging all grades in the creative arts, MCHR allows students to develop and cultivate their interests. Ranging from violin to ballroom dance to visual arts, we provide opportunities for personal growth in a culturally diverse setting.

Through the school’s commitment to community service and empathy, MCHR students develop a strong moral compass and compassionate, open hearts. Our students dedicate themselves to the academic excellence and integrity that will enable them to succeed throughout their lives.
