On Sunday, Mount Carmel welcomed scores of prospective students and parents to the Fall Open House.  The entire faculty and staff was on campus to welcome guests and answer questions, while the National Honor Society and Barda Leadership group (along with other student leaders) conducted tours.  The MC Mother’s Club provided wonderful hospitality, and the Father’s Club assisted with parking.
