Our Lady of Mount Carmel Regional School is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission of Elementary Schools. Though not mandatory, we believe that accreditation demonstrates our commitment to excellence and provides a strong endorsement for the value of an OLMC education.
The accreditation process is a collaborative effort, beginning with a vision created by the school’s key stakeholders (faculty, administration, board members and members of the community) and ending with a five year written plan which charts goals and measures outcomes. Faculty and staff work above and beyond their regular responsibilities to complete a year-long self-study in language arts, math and technology, then receive an evaluation and set of recommendations from a professional and impartial team. The result is a deliberate strategy for ongoing improvement in these areas. A Progress Report is submitted to the Association every three years to keep the accreditation updated. This accreditation is renewed every seven years.
