General School Mission

"Montessori Children's Academy is a non-denominational independent school.

All teaching staff are Montessori trained. They share a common philosophy radiating warmth, skill and dedication to the Montessori education experience.

Teacher Assistants receive Montessori Assistant training.

The curriculum includes the well-established basic areas of a Montessori education: Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Mathematics, Science, Geography and Art.

French is offered as a foreign language to full day Primary students through the fifth grade.

Our students experience community service through participation of teacher and student planned projects throughout the year.

A music program based on the Carl Orff method is experienced by all of our children.

Each classroom includes a three-year age span of students (three years to six years in primary; six year to nine years in the Elementary I, and nine years to twelve years in the Elementary II). The mixed age grouping allows the students to have the ability to work at different academic levels and to be mentors in addition to being students. They move from the youngest child in the class to the oldest, which offers developmental opportunities in itself.

We are concerned with the total growth of the child. Our learning experiences promote the child's social, intellectual, emotional and physical growth."
