St. Mary of Carmel Catholic School is a pre-kindergarten through eighth grade parochial school accredited by the Texas Catholic Conference Accreditation Commission and AdvancEd and we are recognized by the Texas Education Agency. The school offers a strong academic program for all its students.


The development of a child is multifaceted: the intellectual, spiritual, emotional, physical, and social dimensions all require care and nurturing for the formation of a healthy child. We recognize this process by utilizing developmentally appropriate teaching practices designed to address the age group served. The Diocesan Curriculum Guide serves as a model for content and pacing at each grade level.
