Carmel means an orchard or garden-Iand. As a proper name Mount Carmel designates a well-known mountain ridge overlooking the Mediterranean Sea in Israel. Due to its panoramic vista and luxuriant vegetation the prophets of the Bible saw an image of God’s beauty in it and took it as a sign of God’s love and blessings for this people. It is on this Mount the great prophet Elijah established the worship of one, true God and meted out justice to the oppressed people. It is on this Mount the Carmelite Order, a Religious Congregation in the Catholic Church, had its origin. The members of this Order, imbibing the spirit of the great prophet, dedicate themselves to the service of humanity without any distinction of caste, creed or race. Mount Carmel School is an expression of these values.
Mount Carmel School commits itself to co-operate with the local people to evolve enlightened youth-men and women of character-who would be of the best service to humanity. Although Opened to boys and girls of all communities, it is a minority community School run by Christians, enjoying all the rights and privileges enshrined in the articles 29 and 30 of the Indian Constitution.
Since an all-round development of the child is envisaged, the formation cannot be merely academic, confining to the campus. The school discipline is geared to inculcate values like honesty, generosity, self-discipline, spirit of service and sense of fraternity. These values are to be the student’s constant companions, always and everywhere, and his/her greatest accomplishment when he/she grows to bid farewell to the Alma Mater.
