Carmel Central School District Mission Statement  

The parents, staff, students and community of the Carmel Central School District are committed in partnership to quality educational experiences in an environment that fosters mutual respect, values the uniqueness of the individual and challenges all students to become self-motivated, lifelong learners and contributing members of society.

As an academic institution we contribute to the development of minds through inspiring children to create and pursue their own goals and objectives. We accomplish this by creating a welcoming, nurturing and trusting environment for all that empowers children to work alongside their peers, regardless of limitations, ultimately becoming independent lifelong learners. 
Foster personal and academic growth


We are a cohesive community of professionals with a strong sense of family that possess, celebrate and share our unique and individual strengths. We share a common focus to help, facilitate and encourage young minds to grow and fulfill their potential. As facilitators of learning, we utilize a multitude of resources to model and promote these desired outcomes.
A strong cohesive community


Our service is focused on the children who will develop a solid foundation of skills, knowledge and values, maximizing their individual potential along the way. This will in turn contribute to the perpetual improvement of society.
Our children 
As we practice our deep commitment to learning, we accept the roles we fulfill because we understand that children require a safe, positive environment in which to develop into self-motivated and socially appropriate adults. We realize that fulfilling these responsibilities has an even greater benefit to all of us as a growing and ever evolving global community. 
To inspire children to be their best in all aspects of their lives
We are a community that is dedicated to developing and inspiring children to be their
best selves in all
aspects of their lives.
