MCA is preparing me for the future through exposure to technology and the resources available. The counselors are always seeking to help me plan for what lies ahead, and I am always reminded of how important it is to give my best performance every year.


At Mount Carmel you are not just a student; you are a sister and friend. You are loved not only by your classmates, but by all students, teachers, and staff. I love that MCA is not just a school for us; it is a home. 


What I love most about Mount Carmel is the supportive and loving environment. I love the positivity and the sisterhood I am a part of, and I love being in an environment where I am flourishing not only academically, but spiritually and socially as well.


Mount Carmel has impacted my life spiritually by giving me countless opportunities to grow in my faith, including weekly masses, daily rosary prayer, many clubs and activities focused on spirituality, and much more. Everything is centered on faith, which is one of its unique, wonderful assets.
