Our History

Mt. Carmel:  In 1855, Father Charles M. Menard, purchased land and built a school for girls on this site. The Sisters of Mt. Carmel bought the property and building, operating the school from 1855 until the Thibodaux Central Catholic High School opened in 1965. The Carmel Inn and Suites was opened in 1973 on the same original site as the school.
