Our 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 ladies 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.


The mission of Mount Carmel Academy is to provide young women the opportunity to develop their God-given talents through academic excellence and co-curricular programs as well as to empower them to develop zeal for their faith with a commitment to prayer and service.

Our Values and Credo

  • Mount Carmel Academy is a school where the Catholic formation and education of young girls is our highest mission.
  • We pledge to provide an environment in which we are open to God in all the events of life and we relate to God in prayer as a friend, protector, lover, and guide.
  • We pledge to provide an education in truth, justice, and love according to the teachings and way of life of Jesus Christ, Son of God.
