Mission & Philosophy

Mission

The Carmel School prepares students for success in our ever-changing world by creating a community supportive of academic, physical, and spiritual growth to instill honor and integrity rooted in Christian values.

Philosophy & Objectives

The Carmel School is an independent, college preparatory, PreK-12 coeducational school in Ruther Glen, Virginia.  The school strives to develop a well-balanced student by maintaining a commitment to Christian values. Students are challenged not only to grow academically, but also physically, spiritually, emotionally, and socially on their way to becoming responsible citizens. 
 
Active participation in school programs provides students with the opportunities for leadership and service, which equips them with the skills necessary for success in a democratic society and our ever-changing world. Through a coordinated effort, students are taught that honor and integrity are paramount during their education. These values are evident and continually reinforced through our Honor Code.
 
The faculty and staff of The Carmel School continually look for ways to improve the school’s overall curriculum through research, planning, and self study. The pursuit of excellence modeled by the faculty and staff leads to the development of well-rounded students. The faculty and staff are confident that the students are being prepared to meet future challenges with determination and responsibility as a result of the skills acquired while at The Carmel School.
The Honor Code
The Carmel School student does not lie, cheat, or steal, or tolerate those who do.
