Programs and Events
NOVEMBER 3, 12-3 PM
Carmel Catholic is moving forward with some of the most sweeping changes in the school's history. The Advantage: Carmel initiative will provide students with an education "never before seen." Expansion and refinement of several academic programs, design and implementation of a modern classroom aesthetic, and completion of key projects already in the works characterize the initiative which is slated to be in place by Fall 2021.
Prospective students and their families are encouraged to attend our Open House to learn more. Discover Carmel Catholic's unique high school experience, including programs that support academic, social and spiritual growth, as you tour our campus and meet our faculty, staff and students. Free giveaways, free food, and so much to explore. Registration is not required, but doing so will save you time at the door! Enter door G.

To get a firsthand look at Carmel Catholic, we encourage prospective students to spend a day with us for Carmel's most popular program. During a Shadow Day, visiting students are paired with a Carmel student for the day and get to follow that student through his or her classes. We have found that visitors who participate in this unique Shadow Day experience are less apprehensive about their impending high school experience.
Shadow Day visits begin at 7:45 a.m. and conclude at 1:50 p.m. Visiting students will receive a free lunch in the cafeteria, along with fun giveaways at the end of their visit!
Visit carmelhs.org/shadowday/ to learn more and register.

During this event, parents and students will get an exclusive opportunity to explore what it means to be a Corsair athlete. Get an insider’s perspective and meet with our head football coach, Blake Annen, who played in the NFL, and Carmel’s professional trainers from EFT Sports Performance.
