The Sisters' Institute

In 1642, Saint Vincent de Paul established the Order of the Sisters of Union-Chretienne de Saint Chaumond to provide education and instruction to young people. The Sisters currently operate successful schools in France, Spain, Portugal and the United States. The Sisters came to the United States in 1988 and were trained as active teachers in Diocesan Catholic schools in southern California.

The mission of the Institute de Union-Chretienne de Saint Chaumond is to provide a positive educational experience for children in an environment grounded in Christ, and based in pedagogy of confidence and encouragement according to the charism of the Institute.

Tuition Scholarships

A Catholic education should be available to everyone. The Our Lady of Perpetual Help Tuition Assistance Fund (OLP-TAF) is an effort by the community of St. Therese of Carmel Parish and Notre Dame Academy to provide economic assistance to families with limited economic resources, to enable them to provide Catholic education to their children.
