Experience The OLMC Difference

Welcome to the Academy of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, a special place where a student’s journey to excellence begins.

The Academy, a Middle States accredited institution, is a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence offering outstanding academic opportunities in a faith-filled environment.

Principal, Ms. Barbara Verdonck

The OLMC family offers each young person a chance to strengthen their faith, develop God-given talents and grow into life-long learners! Through our varied and innovative programs all facets of an individual’s development are addressed: spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical. With our state-of-the-art, hands-on science program, exceptional fine arts opportunities and a variety of extracurricular and athletic programs, Academy students are able to blossom in their own unique ways while whetting their appetites for future exploration.

The very best way to enter into “the Academy experience” is to come see for yourself. We invite you to contact us for a guided tour.

We look forward to hearing from you!

In Carmel,
Ms. Barbara Verdonck

OLMC's goal is not only to prepare students for high school, but for the rest of their lives.
