Faculty at Carmel Academy Nurtures and Drives Academic Success

What if there was a school that offered every child rigorous and differentiated academics, award-winning social emotional learning, and broad enrichment opportunities – all wrapped in deep commitment to Jewish learning, values, and community?

 

Carmel Academy sits on a beautiful 17-acre campus 35 minutes north of NYC.  The  individualized, whole-child approach supports and stretches their  students to achieve their fullest potential, believing that every child should be deeply understood on a social, emotional level; met, nurtured, and challenged academically, and supported in the pursuit of their interests.

 

They recognize that every child has a unique learning style.  By identifying, leveraging, and growing that set of innate strengths, their faculty nurture and drive academic success.  Advantages of a Carmel education include a rigorous and award-winning curriculum focused on critical thinking, connecting, and collaboration, a faculty who can differentiate lessons to leverage learning styles, an incredible average student to teacher ratio of 7:1, and a dedication to Jewish values and learning focused on developing citizen scholars.

 

Carmel Academy was pioneering Social Emotional Learning long before it was a buzz word.  With a decade of curriculum development and a strong cadre of professionals, Carmel is a leader in developing this key element of student success.  They have three full-time SEL staff, school-wide social skills curriculum, and skills classes to develop executive functioning, study skills, self-esteem, self-awareness, and self-advocacy.

 

Their whole child focus includes supporting interests and opening minds to new areas of engagement.  They  have three modern STEM labs and curricula in science, biology, engineering, computer coding, and mathematics including NYS Regents Algebra; an arts curriculum including music, chorus, band, studio art, and theatre productions, and interscholastic athletics including soccer, cross-country, volleyball, basketball, tennis, baseball, and softball.
