It is with great pride in Mount Carmel College and our students that I welcome all who visit our website. It is our aim to offer each learner opportunities to strive for their personal best. The College lives by the values of love, justice, hope and compassion which are incorporated into our daily life. Through encouragement and support the dedicated team of educators and support staff nurture our students, challenge them to extend themselves and care for them as they work to become equipped to meet the complexities of our global society.
Mount Carmel College is a Catholic school for girls and young boys that has, since 1942, encouraged a love of life and learning. At the heart of our mission is the rich heritage we have inherited from the Sisters of Charity, and which we proudly acknowledge, a heritage of service and commitment to social justice. Mount Carmel’s beautiful setting and outstanding facilities provide an inspiring environment for all of our students. The College enrols boys and girls from Kindergarten to Year 2. Our girls’ only environment from Year 3 to Year 10 supports girls to take intellectual risks and to focus on excellence in achievement. We understand that girls will thrive in a learning environment where they are known, valued and affirmed, and our commitment is to place a conscious emphasis on this.
At Mount Carmel, we know that, as parents, you want your daughter to be supported on her educational journey, respected as an individual and given every opportunity to thrive. We understand that learning cannot occur unless students feel safe, nurtured and supported and we make this a priority. We strongly believe in the growth potential of every one of our students.
Our College encourages its students to flourish, to celebrate their many talents and to become young people of faith who will strive to make a difference in the world. Our students are known for their outstanding success in science and engineering, sport, performing and visual arts, creative problem solving and community outreach work.
What makes our College unique is our community of people, our dedication to excellence and our focus on student wellbeing. Working in close relationship with our families, we enable each student to develop the skills for life-long learning: creative and flexible thinking, resilience, empathy and understanding, generosity of spirit and an understanding of their spirituality. Our commitment as educators is to walk with our students on their learning and faith journey, encouraging the students in our care to achieve their full potential.
Selecting a Secondary school for your daughter is an important and, at times, difficult decision. Our website provides you with a summary of all that the College offers, and you are encouraged to enquire to the College should you seek further information. We hope that you enjoy exploring our website and learning more about our community – a school with a rich heritage and exciting future, providing first class education for today’s girls.
