Kindergarten at Mount Carmel

Beginning in September 2021, we are planning to open a Kindergarten class for children born in 2016 at the Mount Carmel Early Childhood Center. We will continue to add a grade each year through grade 8, creating the Mount Carmel Catholic Academy!

We are working with a team from the Diocese of Brooklyn and our Board of Directors to create our ongoing school’s mission, philosophy and curriculum statements. We look forward to sharing this information with you soon.

We Will Offer:

  • A nurturing and supportive environment where children can learn and grow at a pace unique to the individual.
  • A rigorous, stimulating and engaging curriculum, meeting New York State Standards.
  • A program rooted in the Catholic tradition with an emphasis on living the faith through service and caring for others.
  • A project-based approach, where academic concepts will be explored balancing both traditional learning experiences and age appropriate hands-on activities.
  • A separate “active learning” classroom to allow children to physically engage in STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art Mathematics) related lessons.
  • Two full time experienced teachers who will engage children in both large and small group instruction and facilitate open ended activities.
  • An independent, private school education at a fraction of the cost of other independent schools in the city.
  • Recently renovated classrooms outfitted with Community Playthings™ furniture in early childhood rooms.
  • Two outdoor spaces adjacent to the school, including a garden area, and a large, air conditioned indoor gymnasium for gross motor activities and a full size stage for performances.
