Carmel Catholic High School has named Nate Brill as its new athletic director, replacing Mark Pos, who announced his retirement earlier this spring. As associate director for admissions and an assistant football coach at Carmel since 2020, Brill brings nearly two decades of experience in public, private, and nonprofit educational systems.
Since 1962, the Blessed Titus Brandsma Chapel has welcomed generations of Carmel Catholic students who have encountered Christ in Word and Sacrament. Please join us in our efforts to enhance the natural beauty of our chapel. Our intention is to preserve the tradition of this place, and reflect the legacy of our founders, while creating a timeless aesthetic worthy of the celebration of the Eucharist.
