Caroline Crisp

Faith is the foundation of everything at MCA; we pray before classes and pray the rosary every day, for example. But, MCA has shown me the beauty of growing not only in my faith individually but communally also, such as through our class retreats each year; others have pushed me to let God into my life in ways I never deemed possible. I would not stand where I stand today in my faith if it had not been for MCA. 

Destiny Sanders

MCA has prepared me to be a confident, independent young woman. I am equipped to work with a variety of people regardless of race, gender, or beliefs. I have also learned how to “think outside the box” and how to make an idea become reality.

Sarah Liang

MCA is love and excellence and joy all at once. I walked into school every day and thought, "Wow, I love this place. I love these people. I don't want to be anywhere else." Everyone at Mount Carmel is bonded through sisterhood and knowledge, and I don't think I would've found that anywhere else. 

Clarie Brunet

What I love most about Mount Carmel is that everyone is very close and supportive. We all feel like one big family. It’s my home away from home, and it’s a place where I can always be myself.
