Supporting Mount Carmel Academy
Investing in Mount Carmel Academy
Since 1833, the Sisters of Mount Carmel have been educating young women in New Orleans. This tradition continues today at Mount Carmel Academy. Through a challenging college preparatory curriculum, a commitment to Catholic formation and identity, engagement with the community through an in-depth service learning program, and a myriad of co-curricular activities, Mount Carmel offers students an excellent educational experience.
Through the years, Mount Carmel has grown and excelled. Today, the school is poised to move to a new level of achievement by building on its strengths and the momentum of past successes.
One recent manifestation of Mount Carmel’s continued success is our recent distinction of being named four times as one of the top 50 Catholic High Schools in the United States by the National Catholic High School Honor Roll. The National Catholic High School Honor Roll distinguishes schools that excel in three categories: (1) academic excellence; (2) Catholic identity; and (3) civic education.In 2008, it distinguished Mount Carmel with an Honorable Mention Award in Civic Education. Mount Carmel Academy is the only Catholic high school in the greater New Orleans area to be named a top 50 Catholic High School.
How do I give to Mount Carmel?
100% of your gifts come to Mount Carmel and advance our mission by making an immediate impact on our school and the students who are the ultimate beneficiaries of your generosity.
- Contribution to Carmel (GAP)
Each year, we ask parents of current Mount Carmel students to support the school with a GAP gift. These gifts help bridge the “gap” between tuition paid and the actual cost to educate each student. By closing the gap, these gifts allow Mount Carmel to continue to offer an outstanding program to our students. More information here.
- Alumnae Annual Giving Drive
Each year, we ask our alumnae to support Mount Carmel Academy. Funds raised through the 2013–2014 Alumnae Annual Giving Drive will help to renovate the Science Laboratory in room 1214. Our science curriculum is designed to prepare the students for the rigors of college and to inspire a love for the sciences. Under the tutelage of an excellent faculty, our students are excelling in the sciences and we are proud of their accomplishments. A gift to the Alumnae Annual Giving Drive will make an important impact on their continued success by providing an updated, state-of-the-art laboratory for many years to come.
- Annual Giving
In addition to the GAP and Alumnae Annual Giving Drive, Mount Carmel Academy appreciates parents of alumnae, grandparents and friends who support our school with an annual gift. These gifts provide Mount Carmel with the flexibility to help support a variety of needs, including enhancing the educational experience, improving technology, scholarship needs, and faculty excellence.
