Give To MCHS



Mount Carmel High School’s progress over the last century has been made possible by the generosity and support of our alumni and friends. The contributions of this Mount Carmel family allow us to develop young men of character who love God, love life, and love learning.


The illustrious 117-year history of legendary Men of Carmel can be seen in the names engraved on the stones in the prayer garden, in the photos and news clippings gracing the hallways of the school, and the scores of trophies proudly displayed in cases throughout the school. At the same time, Mount Carmel’s commitment to the future can be seen in the new Convocation and Athletic Center, the technology classrooms and computer labs, as well as the plans for major facility renovations built to support needs of the 21st century learner.
