A Supportive Environment

With an enrollment of approximately 620 young men, each individual finds a place in our community where he can excel, have fun, and feel valued.
Whatever a student's passions may be, Mount Carmel will work to provide experiences that will strengthen his confidence and ability to contribute his talents to the world. In all of our programs, a student learns to set goals, work with others, overcome adversity, and make good decisions. He is trained to become a leader not only at school but in his community.
