Mount Carmel High School, 6410 S. Dante will host an open house on Sunday, Nov. 19.

The 100-plus-year old, all-male Catholic high school prides itself on college readiness and its curriculum that attracts students from across the city and in Northwest Indiana.

Parents and prospective students will have the opportunity to tour renovated classrooms at the school. Guests will also engage in small group presentations that will highlight the advantages of all-male education, technology as a tool for success, financing a Catholic education, McDermott-Doyle program, Mount Carmel’s honors program, student activities and preparing for college, said Mt. Carmel in a written release.

The open house will begin at 11 a.m on Sunday, Nov. 19 in Mount Carmel’s Convocation Center.

“Mount Carmel is at the center of so many cultural and academic opportunities,” said President Ned Hughes ’70 in a written statement. “We are excited to invite and encourage families from throughout the Chicagoland area and Northwest Indiana to campus and see all Mount Carmel has to offer for learners of all levels and backgrounds.”

The placement test at Mt. Carmel takes place on Saturday, Dec. 2. Eighth-grade students may only take the placement test at one Catholic School in the Archdiocese of Chicago.
