The School

Founded in 1927, Our Lady of Mount Carmel School is a K-12, private, Catholic, college preparatory school located in Middle River, Maryland, just outside of Baltimore. As the parish of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, originally a mission outreach of St. Joseph’s parish, continued to grow in the first years of the twentieth century, parishioners felt a need to minister to the parish youth through education. Construction began on Our Lady of Mount Carmel School in 1925 and, initial instruction began afterwards with only ten students. Classes were held in a building that contained four classrooms and an auditorium. The tiny school was staffed by the Sisters of St. Francis from Glen Riddle, Pennsylvania. The initial faculty of five sisters, one of whom was the principal and superior, lived in a small convent on campus. The first eighth grade graduates, a class of six boys and five girls, were awarded their diplomas in 1927. In 1949 the pastor, Monsignor Kerr, had a dream which was to build a high school so that the strong Catholic educational program at Our Lady of Mount Carmel could meet the needs of the older children as well as the younger ones. In 1959, this long time dream was fulfilled with the building of the high school on the campus. Unfortunately, Monsignor Kerr died before the building was completed. The first high school graduating class of 1963, donated a plaque in honor of Monsignor Kerr and named the school’s chapter of the National Honor Society after him. Today, Our Lady of Mount Carmel continues its college preparatory tradition while also enrolling students from Baltimore City, and Anne Arundel, Baltimore, and Harford counties. The school community remains dedicated to the mission of the school and is proud to continue to graduate students who are “invigorated by faith, infused with knowledge, and inspired to serve.”
