Tuition and Financial Aid
A Mount Carmel Academy education is for life.Our students develop into young women of confidence and compassion, are well-prepared for the academic rigors of higher education, and deepen their faith in God and their devotion to serving others. An MCA education is a rewarding investment in your daughter and her future.
“The best investment in my daughter's life! MCA prepares their girls to go out and conquer the world in all aspects of life. They enter as uncertain young girls, and leave as confident young women with strong moral values.” – Renee Girault, Parent of Alumna

PATHS (Parents and Teachers Helping Students) is Mount Carmel's work-study program. Participating students and their parents help around campus or at events, both on- and off-campus. The amount of granted aid is worked at a per-hour rate that varies depending on the task. Parents will be billed quarterly for hours not worked for each quarter.
Applications for the 2019-20 school year are due in April 2019. Applications are submitted through the FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment website. Upon receiving a completed application for financial assistance, the Financial Assistance Committee will review the application and determine the amount of assistance the school will be able to offer.
If you need help, or have questions, please contact Mrs. Pamela Holahan, 504.288.7626 ext. 2340 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a mandatory brief weekly meeting on Monday afternoon after school during which the students receive a schedule of possible opportunities for which they can sign up and submit forms for work completed.
Parents and students in the PATHS program must attend a meeting at the beginning of the school year and if necessary another meeting in January for the next semester.
PATHS job assignments vary depending on need, but may include tasks such as
- Setting up or assisting as needed at events
- Helping at school fundraisers
- Working at alumnae events
- Assisting in the cafeteria
- Assisting with clerical work
