The Carmel School is an independent, college preparatory, PreK-12 coeducational school in Ruther Glen, Virginia. The school strives to develop a well-balanced student by maintaining a commitment to Christian values. Students are challenged not only to grow academically, but also physically, spiritually, emotionally, and socially on their way to becoming responsible citizens. 

Active participation in school programs provides students with the opportunities for leadership and service, which equips them with the skills necessary for success in a democratic society and our ever-changing world. Through a coordinated effort, students are taught that honor and integrity are paramount during their education. These values are evident and continually reinforced through our Honor Code.
