Mount Carmel Academy is a great charter school. The staff there are always willing to help students. Every teacher offers tutorials after and before school for those who are struggling with a subject. The staff in there always try to support the students and tries to prepare each one of us for college. The students are respectful to one another and they are always willing to help each other. MCA has been having 100% graduates for the past few years. All students have gotten accepted to at least one college. The consular is always trying to help students to get a scholarship and is always trying to motivate us. Each students is required to have at least 25 service hours per year that they have attend to Mount Carmel, this is a just one of many examples of how the school tries to teach each student to be a part of the community. This school requires each student to wear the school uniform which is extremely helpful, that way students don't have to worry of what to wear each day.

Mount Carmel Academy is not the ordinary school and being at this school for approximately four years has made me understand the path of life through education and its seriousness to become a better school. At the beginning of my school year, I wasn't a person that focused on school. Everything was fun and games for me but that soon changed. As time went on, I went into my sophomore year without any interest in school. That soon changed when I start to listen to the teachers and staff at my school. There were times in my freshman year where the creative writing teacher would fuss at me for every little thing, and her excuse was that she was trying to prepare me for college and now that I look back, I understand what she meant. Their idea is clear at Mount Carmel Academy. They want to see you believe, achieve, and most importantly succeed. I am a senior at MCA this year, and all I can say is thank you to everyone that has helped me and thank you Mount Carmel Academy.
I like the fact students can find lifelong friends who allow them to be their true selves and I like the way we are taught the criteria they teach us in easy ways and make sure every student is understanding the work. However, one thing I would change is the diversity of the student body and how they interact with eachother.
