Carmel Adventist College is a co-educational day school and boarding school, providing a comprehensive program from Kindergarten to Year 12.
The clean, country atmosphere, combined with a caring Christian environment, encourages students to develop to their potential. Each student is unique and his/her positive contribution to the College is highly valued.
The young people attending our College are provided with many opportunities for self-development: the College Choir, Mathematics competitions, Accro Squad, Sports teams and Bush Rangers all encourage personal and group development and achievement.
New students are welcomed into our College with its warm, caring environment. They can feel secure and safe.
Student academic development is promoted in our College. Dedicated staff effort, high standard facilities, close personal friendships and a sense of belonging all help foster feelings of positive self-worth within the students, which, in turn, translates into a desire to achieve. Students leave our College with a sense of purpose, a desire to better themselves, and a recognition of their responsibility to the wider community.
Daily relationships are enhanced on the sporting fields. Excellent sportsmanship in inter-school competitions, and the enjoyment derived from staff versus student competitions at carnivals are further indications of the quality of relationships that are encouraged at the College.
The Prefect system, based on democratic selection, provides, along with sport House Captaincy and the Student Representative Council, opportunities for leadership and representative government. This level of student involvement is a positive asset to the College.
Carmel Adventist College is owned and operated by Adventist Christian Schools (WA) to provide education in harmony with the beliefs, values, lifestyle and commitment of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The College forms part of the world-wide system of Adventist Education that delivers Christian education to almost one million students in nearly six thousand institutions. Adventist Education offers something for everyone from Kindergarten to University.
Seventh-day Adventists believe in the reality of God the Creator, and that man was created perfect in God’s image. Man has fallen from his original perfection through sin. The ultimate aim of Christian education is the restoration of the image of God in man through the redemptive power of Jesus Christ.
Adventist Education is one that provides families with an education that
- nurtures students with care
- allows students to develop as well rounded individuals
- reinforces the values of home
- instils in students self-discipline and respect for others
- teaches students how to learn
- gives students skills and knowledge to build a future economically and socially.
