Carmel School is one of Western Australia’s leading K-12 co-educational Independent Schools, with a strong commitment to providing the highest standard of education and connection to our Jewish and Zionist ethos, culture and traditions.

We exist to create exceptional, engaged and committed members of the Jewish and wider community. For over 60 years, Carmel has continued to provide the highest standards of education and the School's graduates are leaders in almost all fields and professions. Our co-educational program fosters respect and friendships between students of varied backgrounds who unite around the shared culture, history, traditions and religion of the Jewish people.  

Carmel proudly prepares young minds to take their place as confident Jewish Australians in the wider community, through our commitment to academic excellence, and ensuring each student achieves his or her potential. We are committed to building upon the shared values of our families and developing students' leadership skills, creativity, critical thinking and a strong sense of self and Jewish identity.

We are pleased to offer a prestigious Scholarship Program for prospective and current students. The Scholarship Program will provide outstanding young people with the opportunity to be selected for a scholarship, and for these individuals and their families to be a part of our outstanding community, where students thrive and feel a strong sense of belonging.

We encourage families who are interested in giving their child the opportunity of a Carmel School education to register for a scholarship application. There is pride in both entering and being awarded a scholarship, an experience that will contribute to each candidate’s growth and self-confidence. 

The Scholarship Program will include a number of pathways for selection: academic, community leadership, the arts and sports.

The application process for each scholarship is detailed below. Scholarship Terms and conditions can be viewed here. Applications are welcome from both Jewish and non-Jewish families.
