The school participates in the Department of Education and Skills’ School Support Programme under the Delivering Equality of Opportunity in Schools (DEIS) action plan. As part of this, Mount Carmel is involved in the School Completion Programme (SCP). 
Fifty percent of the students enrolled in the school come from outside of Ireland, from thirty two different countries. The majority of these students come from Poland, Romania and Lithuania but other countries including Mauritius, Nigeria and China are also represented.

In contrast to earlier periods in the school’s history, the student population is now very diverse. One third of these students study Irish despite having been granted an exemption from the subject. 

There are currently 363 students enrolled in the school. In addition to the newcomer population, students come from the local primary schools in the immediate catchment area. In the last four years, enrolment has increased by 25%.
