Knowledge and love of the Catholic Faith is fostered at OLMC Academy as well as excellence in all areas of education.
The supreme law is the salvation of souls. Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Academy seeks this end for her school children by striving to develop within them strong character based upon the timeless teachings of the Holy Roman Catholic Church.
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Academy seeks to develop this character by fostering a profound knowledge and love of the traditional Catholic Faith in an atmosphere of discipline motivated by fraternal charity.
This knowledge and love of the Faith is fostered by love of the Liturgy, the practice of traditional devotions and love for the acquisition of knowledge in a spirit of academic excellence which will equip the children to become productive members of our Holy Mother the Church and the society in which they live.
By these means Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Academy is committed to assisting the parents associated with her work in the returning of the souls of their children to God.
Philosophy of Education
As a school of the Society of St. Pius X, Our Lady of Mount Carmel Academy seeks to assist the Order in the sublime task of the salvation of souls by focusing on the education of children—the Catholics of tomorrow.
The primary concern of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Academy is the welfare of the school children. Of paramount importance is their eternal welfare. To effectively seek this eternal welfare Our Lady of Mount Carmel Academy strives to do the following:
- Instill a profound love for the traditional Catholic Faith, by the following means:
- catechetical instruction to dispel ignorance
- fostering devotion to and the understanding of the sacred liturgy
of Holy Mother Church
- helping the children develop a well-balanced spiritual life through
the practice of Catholic devotions
- Instill an understanding of one’s responsibilities to society at large of setting a good example, that the light of Christ’s social reign can shine forth.
Our Lady of Mount Carmel Academy concerns herself also with the temporal welfare of her school children by striving for excellence in all areas of education. Through a breadth of general knowledge Our Lady of Mount Carmel Academy seeks to equip her children to enter the world strong in the Faith, able to enter that walk of life to which they are best suited and to face the challenge of adapting to a world which is changing at an ever increasing rate.
That they become productive members of their families, communities — both religious and civil — and their countries is the goal of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Academy.
Our Lady of Mount Carmel Academy seeks to assist parents in their God-given mission of developing character in their children. Realizing that the family, as an imperfect society, is not sufficient of itself to completely develop in every child his God-given talents, Our Lady of Mount Carmel Academy strives to assist parents in this work by providing instruction that will help the children realize their full potential thus avoiding the Gospel’s condemnation reserved for those who bury their talents.
The staff of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Academy is committed to these goals. Realizing that perfect schools are the result not so much of good methods as of good teachers (Pius XII), Our Lady of Mount Carmel Academy is committed to providing qualified staff members dedicated to uphold the mission of the school. Their friendly communication with parents facilitated by their accessibility makes the teaching staff a real help to parents in the fulfillment of their sublime task.
