St. Mary of Carmel Catholic School is a fully accredited diocesan school with programs for children from three years of age through eighth grade. The curriculum presents a holistic view of education, providing an environment where children can grow intellectually, spiritually, socially, and culturally. The root belief that Christ is in everyone leads the staff to join with the parents in seeking to bring to every student a knowledge of his/her own worth and potential as a saint.

Admission to St. Mary of Catholic School or participation in school programs is not denied to students on the basis of race, color, ethnic or national origin. Admission shall not be denied because of any disabling condition unless it is clear that the staff, due to lack of program resources, will not be able to meet the student's needs.
