Catholic Education South Australia



Principal's Welcome

As a College steeped in the Josephite tradition, Mount Carmel College provides your son/daughter with an enriching Catholic co-education from Years 7-12.

Set within a vibrant and welcoming community, our broad and inclusive Teaching & Learning and Student Wellbeing programs accommodate individual needs, provide flexible transition pathways and promote the pursuit of academic and personal excellence for your child.

As a Josephite school, we are proud to share in the tradition of the Sisters of St Joseph, who have shaped our spirited community. We continue to build upon the spirit of Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop through providing an education immersed in the Gospel values, whilst living out our own Core Values of Belonging, Diversity, Excellence and Relationship.

Our motto - Caritas et Dignitas (Love and Dignity) - reflects our heritage as a Catholic School in the Josephite tradition. At the heart of our mission is a diverse learning community where relationships are grounded in Gospel values, individuals feel they belong and all are encouraged to succeed and celebrate excellence.

At Mount Carmel College, we value student leadership and encourage your child to be involved in decision-making processes and student initiatives that build our vibrant community. Our extensive Curriculum Extension Activities complement our systematic curriculum and support our belief in providing an educational experience that nurtures and supports the development of the individual.

Our commitment to Social Justice is expressed through our low-fee structure, strong pastoral emphasis and excellent educational opportunities for your child. We welcome you, as parents/caregivers, to become involved in our community to help support the academic and personal growth of your child and the Mount Carmel community as a whole.

I invite your family to consider Mount Carmel College as the secondary school for your child and I welcome the opportunity to talk with you about your child’s education.

Let us work together to preserve a sense of belonging within our community, celebrate our diversity, support individual excellence and continue to create positive relationships.

Mr John Konopka
