General School Mission

"Montessori Private Academy (MPA) is a child-centered school. Our Mission is to prepare the whole child intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically, not only for the child’s years in school, but throughout life. As the child matures, his Montessori education and experiences will help him / her become a productive member of the global community.

The Core Goals of a Montessori Private Academy education:

Multi-sensory learning through hands-on materials in every curriculum area, leading to strong understanding of process and integration of information.

Independent thought and actions learned through accepting responsibility and based on respect for the child’s capabilities and desire to be independent.

Formation of positive social relationships based on daily interactions with other members of a diverse school community.

A strong understanding of the child’s responsibility as an agent of his own education.

Respect for oneself as both a learner and teacher, at each level of development.
