Mission and Values
Mount Carmel Academy is a private, Catholic high school for girls in grades 8-12 in the Archdiocese of New Orleans. It is conducted by the Sisters of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, who have educated young women in New Orleans since 1833. The atmosphere of the school and the individual attention given to each student encourage and foster emotional maturity and spiritual development.
