Service Hours

2021-2022 Service Hour Requirements

In order to assist our parents in the raising of their children in the ways of faith and virtue, OLMC School has a series of parent education nights called Nazareth Nights.  Nazareth Nights are an opportunity to talk through significant issues facing your children and receive insights and encouragement to better deal with those issues in light of Catholic teaching.  Every family at OLMC School must attend 4 of the 6 parent sessions throughout the course of the school year as a part of their commitment to OLMC School.  The topics and dates of the series are released each summer as families plan for the next academic year.

In an effort to keep tuition low, Our Lady of Mount Carmel School requires each registered family to complete a minimum of 15 service hours per school year (a total of 8 hours if you are a single parent or have a deployed spouse; a total of 20 hours if you receive financial aid).

All families are required to track their own hours and record them in FACTS Family Online. Each quarter, a letter is sent home stating the number of hours completed and the number of hours remaining. Attendance at class programs, school functions or sporting events are not included for service hours unless otherwise specified. Service hours end May 15 of each school year. There will be a $15.00 charge per hour to the family tuition for any uncompleted hours.
