Our Lady of Mount Carmel receives School of Distinction Award


Our Lady of Mount Carmel School in Doylestown recently received a School of Distinction Award form the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.

Auxiliary Bishop Michael Fitzgerald, who oversees Catholic education throughout the five-county Archdiocese of Philadelphia, joined senior administrators from the Office of Catholic Education to honor 43 parish and regional elementary schools named 2019 Archdiocesan Schools of Distinction.

Recognition for Growth is determined by an analysis of the Normal Curve Equivalent (NCE) scores of two consecutive years. If a class has the same NCE as the previous year, they have shown more than a full year’s growth. Taking into consideration a margin of error of +/- 5, the following schools showed between 90% and 100% growth at every grade level tested in every content area.
