Cathedral-Carmel is an institution where excellence in Catholic education has been a tradition for more than 160 years! Our co-educational elementary school serves PreK through 8th grades. Established in 1846, CCS is the oldest Catholic school in Lafayette and is considered the flagship school of the Diocese. The administration, faculty, and staff are composed of lay and religious teachers and professionals distinguished with masters and masters-plus certification.
Our school is dedicated to the fulfillment of “teaching minds and touching hearts” through a faith-filled academic community in the tradition of the Sisters of Mount Carmel and the Christian Brothers of St. John Baptist de la Salle.
