130th Anniversary

The 2017-18 school year marks the 130th year of our school.  All Hallows Academy opened in the fall of 1887 as a small girls school with 21 students.  At the turn of the century, the name was changed to Mount Carmel Academy.  In the 60's, the ladies moved across town to the current location of 8506 E. Central.  In 1971, the boys of Chaplain Kapaun Memorial joined them and the school was renamed to become our present day Kapaun Mt. Carmel Catholic High School.  It is because of that legacy, founded by our predecessors, that we are still one of the area's finest schools, and one of the oldest in the state of Kansas!

This legacy needs to be celebrated, and celebrate we will.  We plan celebrations for every month of the 2017-18 school year, beginning with a birthday party in September, marking the 130th anniversary of the opening of our school.  Other celebrations are in the planning stages, and a culminating Gala celebration is planned for May 2018.  We hope to engage many of our great MCA, CKM and KMC alumni, parents of alumni, past and present faculty and staff, as well as current KMC parents, students and friends of the school in this exciting year.  Hopefully there will be a celebratory event for you among the many that we are planning.  Please contact Chenay Sloan, Director of Advancement, with any questions at 316-636-9612 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

We look forward to seeing and meeting many of you during the next year. May God bless you and may He continue to endow our school with His abundant blessings. Let’s all celebrate our 130th year with the energy and enthusiasm that the Mount Carmel, Chaplain Kapaun Memorial and Kapaun Mt. Carmel community richly deserves.
