Christian Service Program
Because Carmel Catholic calls each student to be of service to others, each student must complete twenty hours of Christian service each semester, even if a senior student takes two religion classes in one semester. These service hours are a graduation requirement. Other than incoming freshmen, Carmel students may complete their ministry requirement in the summer prior to the start of the school year.
Carmel Catholic High School uses the university model rotation schedule which allows 70 minute classes twice every three days. Students must take a total of seven classes during freshman, sophomore and junior year. Seniors are required to take six classes; they have the option of a seventh class or early dismissal.
