Mount Carmel has an environment that allows anyone and everyone to feel connected and at home with themselves. The friendships and memories that we make with our sisters will stay with us long after our time at MCA.


I am grateful that I get to attend a Catholic school where I can practice my faith, and am able to talk about it with my peers and teachers.


I like how many club options there are at MCA. It allows me to try new interests that I wouldn’t normally think to pursue.


MCA is the feeling that you are home, that you are surrounded by love and acceptance, and part of a sisterhood that spans years.
