About the School
Carmel Convent School is run by the Congregation of the Sisters of the Apostolic Carmel, an Indian congregation that took its roots in 1870. The school was founded on 16th July 1957 and has completed its Golden Jubilee. The school was initially located at 65/ 48 Diplomatic Avenue. The school soon expanded and moved to a large rented house at 4 Kichener Road (now Sardar Patel Road). The sisters resided on the first floor of the house while the school was run on the ground floor. The 3 acre plot on Malcha Marg where the school is currently located was acquired in 1961.

The stated mission of the school is both the total development of its students and the installation of Gospel values in them.
