Several students also received German Language Certificates for their personal achievements.

The Partner Schools (PASCH) Initiative was launched by the Federal Foreign Office and other German institutions in 2008. As a PASCH member, Carmel is now part of a global network of over 1,800 schools – including 109 in the U.S. – that receive support from the German government, through grants, access to exchange programs, and other resources, to enable their ambitious programs to continue to grow and flourish.
