Catholic School Advantage

Catholic schools have a proven, multi-generational track record of giving students not just the academic preparation they need to succeed, but the character and values they need to thrive throughout their lives.

Students at Mt. Carmel-Holy Rosary School are exposed to a knowledge-based, academically rigorous high school prep curriculum beginning in early elementary school. This academic curriculum is enriched by classes in music and the arts as well as community service projects based on our core values of integrity, humility, hard work, and service. Faith formation is emphasized in every grade so that all students can learn values that help them to fully develop their unique gifts.

With support from the Partnership Schools network, MCHR teachers and leaders empower students to develop the knowledge, skills, and values they need to be community leaders, critical thinkers, and good people.
