Mount Carmel High School Retains Connor Associates for Enrollment Feasibility and 2021 Enrollment Forecasting

Connor Associates Strategic Services, LLC (CA) has been retained to conduct Enrollment Feasibility and Five-Year Forecasting Research for Mount Carmel High School, an all-boys, Catholic high school in the city of Chicago.

Mount Carmel High School is Chicago’s premier college preparatory school for young men. 

Located just south of the Museum of Science and Industry, the University of Chicago, and the site of the future Obama Presidential Center, Mount Carmel attracts students from all across Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana.  Over a century after Mount Carmel’s founding in 1900, under the leadership of the Carmelites, the school continues to fulfill its mission to inspire young men to live with zeal for God, for life, and for learning.

Mount Carmel offers several levels of college preparation to meet the unique talents, needs, and abilities of its students. Teachers work to identify the strengths of the individual student, placing him in an academic program that will challenge him to reach his full academic potential.

According to Mount Carmel President Ned Hughes (MCHS Class of 1970), “Generations before me have developed a strong alumni network of more than 14,000 men of Carmel; a thriving 117 year-old academic institution that prepares young men for success in college and in life; and a storied athletic history with 23 state championships.”

The next phase of Mount Carmel’s legacy will bring important change - change that already has begun with the complete renovation of the third floor classrooms, and improvements in technology to meet the unique needs of 21st century male learners.

These developments are part of a $15 million capital campaign that will include renovating all classrooms into technology-rich learning centers and repurposing portions of the main building into design and build labs, art studios, student gathering spaces, and a performing arts center.

“As an alumnus I know the impact a Mount Carmel education can have on a young man,” commented Jim Gilbert, Director of Finance and a 1998 graduate of Mount Carmel. “We are looking forward to working with Connor Associates and connecting with even more families from across Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana who can benefit from our academic program, just like I did.”

We are proud to have Mount Carmel High School as a client. Connor Associates Strategic Services, LLC is based in California and has served the market research, planning, and branding needs of 450 private, charter, and independent schools and colleges in the US, Europe, Africa, and Asia over the past 20 years.
