Carmel Hires Director of 2050 Program/Multi-Cultural Center

Students admitted into the 2050 Program will receive financial, academic, and social support to help them grow and flourish while at Carmel Catholic and beyond. The purpose of the “2050” name is that the first graduates of the program, who will have graduated from a university, will give back and support other 2050 Program students starting in the year 2050.

Mrs. Fitzpatrick will lead the transition to Carmel Catholic for these students who may experience cultural, social, and academic challenges, with the goal of developing their sense of belonging to the school community. Mrs. Fitzpatrick will serve as a critical source of support for all program mentees during their four years at Carmel Catholic High School.

Additionally, Carmel Catholic's new Multi-Cultural Center will open on January 4, 2021. Under the direction of Mrs. Fitzpatrick, the center will offer a variety of programming and support to all students.

Through our diversity, equity, and inclusion task force, we have recognized a number of opportunities to better celebrate the inclusivity of our community and to ensure that all students are served, no matter their race, religion, or background. Rooted in the charisms of the Order of Carmelites and the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, our community embraces a tradition of dignity, diversity, and justice. Carmel is committed to honoring the dignity of every individual within our community.

Mrs. Fitzpatrick has a strong background working in Catholic schools and is very familiar with the Carmel community. Of her five children, two are Carmel alumni and two are current students. She began her position on October 26.

In the coming weeks and months, we look forward to sharing how Mrs. Fitzpatrick's role will impact our students, our programming, our curriculum, and even our physical spaces within the school.
