Principal Mrs. Millie Lujan Afaisen

We are very pleased to inform you that the Mount Carmel Alumni and Endowment Foundation have again directed that MCS not raise Tuition Rates or Registration Fees for school year 2016-2017. MCS has not raised tuition or registration in years and continues to strive to provide the best education on Guam at the most affordable costs possible. MCS maintains the lowest tuition and registration rates of all Guam private schools while providing Guam’s most accomplished and qualified Faculty and Administration. Please register soon!   


Over the last nine (9) years we have enjoyed an annual enrollment of between 350-550 students and our MCS Familia continues to grow! In order to accommodate our expanding student body we will use this summer break to continue our extensive capital improvement development made possible by the generous contribution from the YSRAEL FAMILY. Phase I Summer renovations include the removal and replacement of the Phoenix Hall, Music Academy, & Chamorro Lecture Hall roof and ceilings (original building); the Dance Studio will be extended to create one large combination Dance Studio and Martial Arts Dojo; construction of walkway extensions between the elementary school and Chamorro Lecture Hall/Phoenix Hall; removal and relocation/placement of all exposed/hanging electrical lines underground; refurbishing, repairing or replacing railings; complete painting of all MCS buildings and more!!! The second floor has been and continues to house our Chamorro Lecture Hall and Music Academy; no other school on Guam compares with MCS’ Chamorro Language and Music programs. As a result of this large capital improvement development, offers the most complete, progressive school curriculum for students in elementary and middle school. In addition to rigorous and competitive instruction in areas of Math, Science, Language Arts and Social Studies, we are the only Guam school to offer full mandatory courses in Religion, Music, Chamorro Language, Physical Education, and Art. As enrollment increases, we look forward to Phase II renovations which will provide additional upgrades and repairs to the remainder of the campus. These capital improvements have an estimated value of nearly half a million dollars!!! This investment is greatly needed and will contribute enormously to our continued development and improvement of MCS facilities.  


MCS will continue to work towards upgrading and improving classrooms and ensuring smaller class sizes for every grade –Pre-School through 8th grade. MCS has added new Promethean Boards and lap tops to middle and elementary classrooms. We hope to add to our multi-media resources (audio and visual).




 

Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic School Mission Statement

Mount Carmel School educates and develops the entire Child.  As a private, Catholic school we teach Morals, Values and Culture, just as parents are able to teach the Virtues of right and wrong at home.  Mount Carmel celebrates more than a half century of ensuring our children enjoy education. We are community based and MCS students are immediately more relevant and functional in their homes, villages, and Church communities.  We enhance character and discipline while preparing our students for advanced education and the highest roles of responsibility in their lifetimes.   MCS prepares students for lifelong learning and for excellence in family and community.    

 


 

History of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic School

Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic School (MCS) was founded in 1957 to initially provide a Catholic education to the students of southern Guam under the spiritual guidance of Father Mel McCormack. Despite the devastation caused by many natural disasters over the years, Mount Carmel School was restored through the kind generosity from many of its alumni and Southern community, thus continuing to provide a quality Catholic education, in line with its traditions and heritage. The school’s population hit its all time high in the 70’s with an enrollment of over 900 students. While maintaining its high enrollment, Mount Carmel also maintained its ability to promote students who eventually moved on to become successful and outstanding members of our island community for years to come.


In 2007, the Mount Carmel Alumni and Endowment Foundation was created and Chaired by Attorney Michael F. Phillips. Resulting from their commitment, generosity and support, the Alumni and Endowment Foundation increased the school’s population and made significant improvements to the school’s physical and educational structure.


Today, Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic School has a student population ranging between 350 and 550 students enrolled from Pre-K through 8th grade. Mount Carmel Catholic School has the most highly qualified faculty on Guam and continues to attract master teachers. Principal Millie Lujan Afaisen, with her dynamic educational and administrative strengths, greatly supports the school’s mission to offer the most complete education on island. Mount Carmel School offers the most complete, progressive school curriculum for students in elementary and middle school. In addition to rigorous and competitive instruction in areas of Math, Science, Language Arts and Social Studies, we are the only Guam school to offer full mandatory courses in Religion, Music, Chamorro Language, Physical Education, and Art. MCS strongly encourages and offers students and parents the greatest opportunity for additional learning through sports and many other extracurricular activities. MCS produces events ensuring students enjoy early learning experiences working independently and performing collectively as a team with MCS families and in our communities.


Over the last nine (9) years MCS has become the most winning elementary and middle school on Guam (music, sports, language, and other academic competitions). This year MCS will begin implementation of the new Ysrael School Of Business which will promote and enhance a higher level Business Curriculum and Junior Achievement Programs. The last WASC accreditation team labeled MCS the “Harvard of Guam.” At the same time, we continue to service Guam’s most financially challenged families and maintain the most affordable Tuition of all private schools on Guam.


The Mission of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic School is to educate and develop the entire Child. As a private, Catholic school we teach Morals, Values and Culture, just as parents are able to teach the Virtues of right and wrong at home. Mount Carmel School celebrates more than a half century of ensuring that our children enjoy an education rooted in Tradition, Spirit, Heritage and Pride. We are community based, and MCS students are immediately more relevant and functional in their homes, villages, and Church communities. We enhance character and discipline while preparing our students for advanced education and the highest roles of responsibility in their lifetimes. MCS prepares students for lifelong learning and for excellence in family and community.
