The Carmel School is committed to a strong athletic program as a fundamental development in the growth of each student. The Carmel student has access to a wide range of opportunities to develop him/her athletically throughout their scholastic experience. Students participating in the athletic program will be committed to the sports of their choice and are expected to excel. Every opportunity is provided to offer the best competition on a year round basis. Tournaments and opportunities are provided for students to showcase their talents. Students are encouraged to participate in more than one sport but are expected and encouraged to fulfill all academic and athletic requirements.

Our Core Values
  1. To foster a safe environment and create a community built on the Christian tradition.
  2. To esteem personal honor and integrity as an integral part of all school programs.
  3. To treat every member of the school community and beyond with respect and dignity.
  4. To instill a commitment to a lifelong pursuit of excellence.
  5. To embrace the diversity in our community.
  6. To partner with one another to be responsible citizens.
At The Carmel School, we strive to instill in our athletes a sense of respect for themselves, their teammates, and their opponents. In our program, this sense of sportsmanship and respectful conduct carries over to the entire student body, and is promoted and reinforced by faculty, parents, coaches, and spectators.

Leaders and Good Citizens:
Athletes who openly and consistently make good decisions regarding personal behavior and life choices set examples for their peers and each other. The Carmel School athlete learns the value of good leadership from examples set by coaches, and the work ethic instilled in each boy or girl results from daily practice, high expectations, the accomplishments of personal and team goals, and consistent behavior.

STEP: " Students Train, Excel, Progress"  
Is an after school study hall that is assigned when a student's grade falls below a C in any Academic subject.

STEP as an opportunity for advanced notice and remediation opportunities. Students cannot participate in extra-curricular activities if their grades drop.  Such things as chorus, drama and sports are suspended until the student can sufficiently improve a D, F or Incomplete grade to C or better.  STEP gives students this opportunity to focus on study.
