The Mount Carmel Area Education Foundation exists to provide a means for alumni, parents, and friends to unite in their efforts to support and strengthen the Mount Carmel Area School District through gifts, trusts, and bequests. The goal of the foundation is to help maintain a meaningful and effective learning culture within the school by providing opportunities in academics, arts and athletics.
While much has been accomplished from year to year, the school district still faces limitations in funding which can have a direct impact on academic outcomes, as well as opportunities for extra-curricular activities.
In the past, Mount Carmel Area has been fortunate to have the support of a vibrant community, a healthy and robust economy, and state funding which fostered the acheivement of MCA programs to distinguished heights. As funding becomes more limited, and the local economy shrinks, administrators and the board of education must find ways to maintain the levels of support that MCASD has provided in decades past. It is this shortfall which the education foundation exists to address.
