Honors and Advanced Placement Program
Mount Carmel's celebrated Honors and Advanced Placement (AP) Program challenges students with a rigorous curriculum taught by highly qualified faculty members who introduce students to all their particular subject areas have to offer, from classical foundations to the most contemporary research. Honors Program students have the exclusive opportunity to graduate from Mount Carmel with the highly regarded Honors Diploma.
WHAT DO AP CLASSES OFFER MOUNT CARMEL STUDENTS?
AP classes not only demand that students complete college-level material at a college-level pace, but invite students to fully immerse themselves in their area of interest. AP classes are carefully designed by faculty and administration to prepare students for success on the year-end AP exams, which determine whether a student may earn college credit for his work. Past Mount Carmel Honors/AP students have achieved such high levels of success on these exams that they earned enough credits to bypass their freshman year of college.
Graduates of Mount Carmel's Honor's/AP Program have matriculated to such prestigious colleges and Universities as Harvard, Stanford, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Duke, Cornell, Notre Dame, West Point, Air Force Academy, and University of Chicago, just to name a few. They go on not only to pursue careers in such fields as medicine, law, education, politics, business, engineering, and research, but they also establish themselves as leaders at the forefront of their respective fields.
