Why Cathedral-Carmel is your best choice?
Cathedral-Carmel is an institution where excellence in Catholic education has been a tradition for over 165 years! We are a co-educational elementary school serving PreK through 8th grades. Established in 1846, CCS is the oldest school in Lafayette. The administration, faculty, and staff are composed of professionals distinguished with masters and masters-plus certification. Our mission is to teach our students Roman Catholic values in an environment of academic excellence. We are dedicated to the fulfillment of “teaching minds and touching hearts” through a faith-filled academic community in the tradition of the Sisters of Mount Carmel and the Christian Brothers of St. John Baptist de LaSalle.
 Academics focus on the preparation of our students to become “life-long learners.” We believe that the education students receive in elementary years is the fundamental and foundational basis for growth and achievement in their adult lives. Cathedral-Carmel School offers a school environment that provides solid Christian values and morals, “state of the art” technology, and high academic standards.
We encourage you to visit our campus and experience for yourself why we say that at Cathedral-Carmel School our mission is “teaching minds and touching hearts.”
