I really love this school, and I can not even imagine going to another school. This school has so many clubs to join that suit different interests that everyone has a place somewhere. Also, the small class sizes help me to learn better because not only is there less room for distraction, I can also have personal relationships with my teachers. Also, gym day and spirit day are so much fun, and they brings us close together not only as a class but also as a school. Our sports teams are out of this world amazing, and the varsity volleyball team has won state six years in a row! Everyone is surprisingly really nice, even if you aren't really friends with them, which is strange for an all girls school. They also put a large focus on the fine arts program: theater, singing, and visual arts.

I have had a positive experience over the past 4 years at Mount Carmel Academy. The staff is undoubtedly interested in the students’ success and growth as strong ladies in our community. However, my strong opinion is that one will only get out of their experience the amount that she puts in. Mount Carmel Academy offers many diverse opportunities through clubs and sport teams, and a whole hearted involvement in activities will truly create a better high school experience. If students use all of the resources given available, Mount Carmel Academy excels in college preparation. Overall, this school offers students a wealth of opportunities and experiences that are beyond valuable when taken.
Mount Carmel Academy is a great high school for anyone to send his or her daughter. Not only are the academics outstanding, but the environment is as well! I am currently a junior attending this high school, and when I was trying to figure out where to go to high school, I will admit that I was a bit hesitant to come here because it was completely different from what I was used to, and not to mention, I had no idea who anyone was coming into this school; nonetheless, I am very glad that I decided to come here and stay because of how welcoming everyone is, how helpful and understanding the teachers are, and the school's culture is so unique. The school also offers rigorous classes along with numerous fun clubs and activities to fit everyone's interests.
