Principal Welcome Letter

Welcome to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic School. Fully accredited through the New England Association of Schools and Colleges since 1997, this fine institution serves students from diverse backgrounds.  We offer a rigorous curriculum that includes, in addition to our regular academic courses, foreign language (Italian) for Kindergarten through eighth grade as well as computer technology, art, music, physical education, student leadership and library.

I am fortunate to be working with a dedicated staff of professionals and Pastor who are committed to the mission of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.  We continue the traditions of this institution while constantly searching for ways to advance our mission, that of developing children academically and spiritually.  To that end we participate in weekly mass on Tuesdays.  Our students host and participate in all liturgical year celebrations.  Our Lady of Mount Carmel welcomes those who wish to grow academically and spiritually.

Please contact our school for further information.
