Colloquium\n, pl: an academic meeting at which information is given on a topic or related
topics with questions answered related to them.
Dear Carmel Catholic Families,
FROM THE PRESIDENT
I am pleased to be able to offer you this first edition of the reconstituted Colloquium.
After feedback and analysis we have decided that a paper copy of this communication serves
the community more effectively than an e-copy. We will publish this newsletter seven times
over the course of the year.
“Who knew 50 could look this good?” is our “unofficial” tagline for the celebration of our
golden anniversary. I think it is quite fitting because Carmel Catholic looks stunning in every
respect as she moves into the next decades of life. The vibrancy of a new year is contagious
among the faculty, students, parents, administration and staff. We have had a positive, smooth
start to the year.
On Sunday, August 21st we began our year-long celebration with an outdoor liturgy honoring
our founding communities, the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Order
of Carmelites. A chartered bus from Dubuque arrived carrying the Sisters who reside in and
around Mount Carmel. Those who minister in the Chicagoland area joined them in the student
lounge for refreshments prior to mass. The Carmelites followed shortly thereafter which
completed our VIP guest list. An additional 1100+ people filled the home stands and chairs
which were set-up in Baker Stadium. The student soloists and choir were accompanied by
professional musicians and singers to round out the musical selections for the event. Against
the blue sky flew a plane pulling a banner which read “Happy 50th Birthday Carmel Catholic
Guest homilist, Sister Mary Ann Zollmann, BVM (President of the Congregation) offered this
Community at Carmel is grounded in God. Certitude that divine life breathes in everyone
and everything is the primary source of our communion; sharing a common life in God; we
are one family. Even as specific events like Kairos retreats, liturgies and sacramental rituals
bring the presence of God to heightened awareness, the sense of being in sacred space
infuses the whole Carmel environment. It finds expression in a spontaneous greeting, in
unrequested kindness, in attentive mutual conversation, in selfless celebrations of another’s
success, and in generous compassion at times of tragedy. To be at Carmel is to learn by
heart that there is no separation between what is holy and our everyday life; wherever we
are and whatever we are doing, there is God.
May each of us live out this spirit so beautifully expressed as we begin another year together!
Judith Mucheck, Ph.D.
From the Principal’s Desk…
Meeting the Challenges of the 21st Century
“The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how
to learn…and change.” This wisdom comes from Carl Rogers, a noted
psychologist. His insights are especially applicable to education in the
21st Century, a time marked by accelerated growth of information and
the impact of globalization. The teacher-centered classroom, simple
coverage of material, and memorization of facts are ineffective. Authentic
learning, defined by in-depth study, and critical thinking skill development
in an atmosphere of collaboration and inquiry based education, lays the
foundation for an academic program that empowers students’ with the
ability to recognize relevant patterns and apply that knowledge to anything
that comes their way. As an academic institution, Carmel Catholic is
committed to meeting the challenge of empowering our students with 21st
Century learning skills.
In response to this demand, we have identified Understanding by Design
(UbD) as the framework around which to build our curriculum, a framework to educate students for the demands of the world today.
UbD is built on “big ideas” and “essential questions” that must be realized by each student in the process of “learning how to learn.”
Visitors to our building will notice these understandings and questions visible in each classroom, as well as the UbD unit designs for
each course posted to faculty Edline pages. Our curriculum is developed with the end results in mind – what students should know, be
able to do and understand.
The curriculum is supported by the redesigned use of assessments: formative, summative and common as well as the movement
toward student-centered learning. Formative assessments allow teachers to monitor student progress and adjust instruction as needed.
You might call it “measurement along the way.” Summative assessment allows measurement of standards achieved through the
traditional use of testing. The common assessment, which is both the standardized tests given each year as well as the internal tests
which are designed by teachers who share common courses and used to measure all students enrolled in the same course. These
common instruments provides data across the student body as well as some insurance that the student academic experience will be
consistent, no matter which teacher is teaching the class.
In addition, our students are challenged to take control of their learning through activities that require them to construct meaning
through experience-based study. They are called on to shape new learning built on a foundation of their culture, experience and
previous knowledge. Students learn best when in-depth inquiry and independent application experiences replace simple coverage.
We are building active learners with the ability to take what they have learned and transfer it across disciplinary and cultural
boundaries in order to generate innovative solutions. This project based learning is often supported by collaborative group work and
expanded boundaries of learning. This is one reason why technology integration throughout the curriculum is a priority. Expanding
access to technology through the one-to-one laptop program, currently in the planning process, will allow us to move beyond the
classroom walls like never before. At Carmel, we understand and accept the responsibility of preparing our students to be life-long
learners in this fast paced, ever changing world.

We welcome the start of our academic year, 2011-2012! It is my
hope that the past two months have given us time to replenish our
energy, refresh our minds, and rejuvenate our spirits as we begin
another year filled with excitement, hope and optimism.
The start of school is always an invigorating time for most of us, as
once more we see Carmel come to life with our students, whose
faces, voices, and presence we have missed and whom we are
happy to have back in our watch and care for the next ten months.
We welcome the Class of 2015 who in some wonderful way is
starting their high school experience during a milestone year for
Carmel Catholic - our 50th birthday! We are also very pleased to
welcome the new members of our faculty, who bring their wealth
of experience, expertise, energy and initiative to the collective and
strong force of educators, administrators and staff that make up the
The Office of Institutional Advancement (OIA) spent the summer
planning and preparing to gear up for another extremely busy
year. In August this year, we hosted five ZIP code parties. We were
thrilled to have more than 150 freshmen parents join us, as we
welcomed them to the Carmel family. We are grateful for our host
families including: Beth and Mike Brennan, Margaret and Bryan
Cloe, Annette and John Nikolich, and Ron and Janis Paulson.
We were happy to see the proud faces of parents during our
Welcome coffee drive-through as they dropped off their children
on the first day of school. We were also overjoyed to have 1,200
members of our Carmel community join us for our school’s
Opening Liturgy on August 21. It was heartwarming to be with so
many Carmel families and friends, and members of our founding
religious orders, the BVMs and the Carmelites grace our very first
event to commemorate our 50th anniversary.
To date, we have hosted five of the nine class reunions scheduled
for this year (2006, 1976, 1991, 1966, 1981). It is always a joy to
see alums having a good time, reconnecting and re-living their fun
memories of high school.
The past two months have allowed me the time to reflect on
what we have accomplished and to think forward to meeting
new challenges and opportunities. Earlier this month, I had the
privilege of participating in a leadership workshop for Carmel’s
administrators and department chairs which I found very timely
and most uplifting; as together we affirmed our roles as servant
leaders and our commitment to Carmel’s core values and mission.
Carmel has an extraordinary faculty, administration and staff,
who give their absolute best to ensure that students receive
excellent education and faith formation. It is both a humbling and
rewarding experience to serve alongside like-minded individuals
whose passion and dedication to provide transformative education
for our students.
Thanks to our very generous Carmel community of current and
past parents, alums, grandparents, staff and friends, we are able
to provide our young Corsairs with endless possibilities and
opportunities for growth and development.
There are many reasons to be grateful and to celebrate as we begin
another school year. Great and exciting times are ahead of us.
Please mark your calendars for our upcoming events and social
activities in the next few months. Please call the OIA for additional
information about these events at (847) 388-3390 or email
[email protected] We would be grateful if you can join us.

Golf Classic 2011
It was the best we have had in years! What
exactly? The weather, the location, the
participants, and the golf.
The Annual Carmel Catholic Golf Classic
was held at Stonewall Orchard Golf Course
in Grayslake on June 13, 2011. The event
raised more than $35,000 for the tuition
programs. Parents, alum, and friends of
Carmel enjoyed a round of golf, meals, and
a silent auction while supporting CCHS.

Carmel Catholic High School Welcomes
the Class of 2015
On August 18, 2011 Carmel Catholic High School officially
welcomed the Class of 2015. Approximately 340 new faces walked
through the many entrances of the high school, anxiously awaiting
the start of their Carmel Catholic experience. Students from over
65 different grade schools were beginning their academic journey
together. Although this was the first time this class came together
in a formal academic setting, these students were already familiar
with one another, with over 98% of the incoming Freshmen Class
participating in the Freshmen Experience.
The Freshmen Experience is a one-day retreat that serves as a social
catalyst, where the freshmen come together to participate in team-building and icebreaking
activities. Some activities are active and others are thought provoking, and participation in these
activities allows students the opportunity to branch out and meet other students in their class. The
Freshmen Experience is geared toward fostering new friendships within the freshmen class while
strengthening existing ones.
For the second consecutive year, the Freshmen Experience took place on the campus of Carmel
Catholic and was very successful. Hosting the Freshmen Experience on campus gives our
Freshmen Class a unique opportunity to have an organized event on campus prior to the start of
the school year allowing students to become more familiar with one another while acclimating to the larger campus.
On August 18, 2011, I expected the halls to be alive with more excitement than anxiety, and they were. These students reaffirmed my belief
that we are very fortunate to have them join the Carmel Catholic family! Their energetic and accepting nature has been on display from day
one and these qualities are certainly hallmarks of this class.
I am very proud to welcome the Class of 2015!

Street Scenes Ad Drive
Notification Concerning Asbestos Content and
Management Plan for Carmel Catholic High School
The Street Scenes Ad Drive began
Friday, August 26th and extends
through Friday, September 30th.
Carmel Catholic’s operating budget
relies upon these funds to meet
normal operating expenses during
the year. This is one way we are
able to keep our tuition lower than
other Catholic high schools in the
Archdiocese. To the end, each student
is expected to bring in a mandatory
amount of $150, and if not, $150 will
be billed to students’ tuition accounts
during the fall semester. Selling ads for
the Ad Book or selling tickets to Street
Scenes can satisfy the amount due.
Thank you very much for all you do to
encourage your student to do his/her
part for this important fundraiser.
In 1986, Congress passed the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA). That
law requires all schools, kindergarten through twelfth grade, to be inspected to identify
any asbestos-containing building materials. The law further requires the development of a
Management Plan, based upon the findings of the inspection, which outlines our intent in
controlling the potential for exposure to asbestos fibers in our school.
We are in need of volunteers, 8:30
a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for the Street
Scenes Ad Drive Collection days;
September 20, 23, 28 and 30. Please
call Mrs. Collette at 847-388-3377 if
you can provide assistance any or all
of these days.
Every three years the asbestos in this school is required to be re-inspected. The re-inspection
report notes any changes in the condition of the asbestos since the previous report. The last
three-year inspection was conducted at this school in December of 2008 and has been
added to the management plan. This past summer, asbestos ceiling tiles and pipe insulation
were removed from the 700 hallway. A copy of the three-year inspection report and the
management plan is on file at Carmel Catholic High School in the Academic Office for
your review if you so desire.
In the past, asbestos was used extensively in building materials because of its insulating
and fire retarding capabilities. Virtually any building built before the late 1970’s contains at
least some asbestos in pipe insulation and structural fireproofing. We, too, have buildings
that contain asbestos materials. The primary concern arises when these materials begin to
deteriorate or become damaged.
The inspection of this school is complete and some asbestos-containing materials were
identified in the building. The materials are distributed in various locations and include pipe
insulations and mechanical areas not readily accessible to building occupants or students.
The Inspection Report and Management Plan outlines in detail the methods we will use
to maintain the materials in a safe manner. Carmel has had, or is in the process of having,
people properly trained to successfully administer this program.
Department of Student Services - A Resource for
Student Services is dedicated to helping our students be Carmel Strong this year!
As we celebrate our school’s 50th birthday, we welcome our new freshmen and
focus on helping them transition into their new school. We are proud of our school’s
freshmen orientation process, and stress with parents the importance of making
connections early with school personnel.
We encourage our parents to get to know their school counselor. Students are
assigned counselors based on the alphabet (first letter of their last name). Counselors
see students regarding academic, social, and general concerns that arise during their
daily activities. All students meet with their counselors a minimum of two times a
year. During these meetings counselors review their four year plans, grade point
averages, and discuss career goals. As students approach their junior and senior years,
counselors assist students in matching colleges with their career goals.
Carrie Egan, our College and Career Coordinator, hosted senior application meetings
on August 25, August 28 and September 12, 2011. Seniors who struggle with
completing their applications (or who may not understand how to get started) may
attend one of the last two senior application completion night in our computer
lab (Room 505). The Computer Application Nights are September 22 (3-5p.m. and
October 17 (3-5 p.m.). In addition, individual counselors will be meeting with
their senior students the first month of school to answer any questions about the
application process, to read college essays, and to help students with their college
Students- First Semester Ministry Contracts
(available on Edline) are due Monday
September 26…looking for places to serve at?
The following sites are in need of help from
Carmel Catholic students:
Elizabeth Carlson, our Social Services Director, will be providing group sessions
for transfer students to help them with adjusting to their new school. She will assist
in suggesting clubs or other activities for them to join to get them connected to our
school. Mrs. Carlson is also busy planning for our Red Ribbon Week and organizing
Sigma Alpha Delta.
Student Services invites you and your students to get involved and to connect with our
school community. We believe that together we will be Carmel Strong!

“The orientation for new band members was well received; it was fun and exciting work
for the new students. During that day and continuing throughout the camp, the existing
band members were supportive and always positive. The freshmen were welcomed with
open arms and appreciated getting to know upperclassmen in addition to other freshmen
before school started,” stated DiAnn Behrens, parent of freshman Jennifer Behrens.

Upcoming Carmel Catholic High School 50th Anniversary Events
A Brief History
Carmel Catholic is jointly sponsored by the Sisters
of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVM) and
the Order of Carmelites (O.Carm.). In 1960, the
Archdiocese of Chicago requested that these two
religious communities build a co-institutional Catholic
high school in Lake County. In September 1962,
Carmel High School for Boys opened its doors to a
freshmen class of 175 students. In September 1963,
Carmel High School for Girls admitted students.
In August 1988, the two schools merged and a
separate corporation was established for the newly
The school occupies a fifty-acre campus with extensive
educational and athletic facilities. The school’s newest
addition is a state-of-the-art Science Wing—one of the
largest expansion and renovation projects in Carmel’s
history. The wing includes ten classroom laboratories
as 90 percent of Carmel students take science classes
all four years and 25 percent of Carmel Catholic High
School graduates pursue careers in the fields of Science
In order to heighten awareness of the school’s Catholic
roots, Carmel High School was renamed Carmel
Catholic High School in 2005.
Today, our school operates at capacity with nearly
1400 students. We have 75 classroom teachers and
over 73% have advanced degrees. Our ACT scores are
among the highest in Lake County with a composite of
25.5 that is significantly higher than the state average.
We consistently have a 100% graduation rate and a
100% college acceptance rate. In 2009, the Carlos J.
Serna Learning Resource Center was established to
serve students who are admitted to Carmel Catholic
with learning exceptionalities and to strengthen our
commitment to a quality education for all students.
The Serna Center accommodates students in grade
9 through 12 who have an active Individualized
Education Plan (IEP) or 504 Accommodation Plan.
The Board of Directors and school administration are
committed to keeping Carmel Catholic at the forefront
of Catholic secondary education. At the heart of
Carmel Catholic is a deep and abiding commitment to
community service and a deep respect for all people.
