General School Mission

"The educational program at The Montessori Academy emphasizes the stages of development and a respect for the child's whole being. It allows the children to explore, learn and grow intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially so they can reach their fullest potential and make a meaningful contribution to society.

To implement this philosophical goal, we utilize the Montessori program that will involve school personnel, parents and the students in a cooperative spirit operating as an educational team.

The staff at The Montessori Academy believe in providing a safe, orderly and a well-structured environment founded on mutual respect, which allows each child to experience the excitement of learning, so that his/her ability will be at a maximum in future learning situations.

The Chesapeake location now has a state-of-the-art security system that includes password protected keypad entry into the building as well as automated check-in and check-out for your child. Guests who come to the door during school hours will have to ring a bell before being allowed to enter the building. You can have peace of mind while you’re away knowing that your child is learning in a safe, secure environment.

Our program is committed to standards of excellence in the quality of the curriculum, in the nature of staff interactions with students and in the overall aesthetic and social environment. "
