Welcome to Montessori Academy

It is our pleasure to welcome you to our school. Whether you are interested in our Lower School that serves students from Infants through Kindergarten, or in our Upper School which caters to students from first through eighth grade, you will feel the family atmosphere that characterizes our institution. We are proud to offer an excellent academic curriculum based on the education philosophy developed by Dr. Maria Montessori. In our classrooms, children work at their own pace, enjoying freedom of movement and choice. Students excel by manipulating the Montessori materials, while building a strong sense of community, respect and love. Please call us to schedule a tour of our facilities to experience the difference that Montessori education has been providing to children for over 100 years.

-Ms. Monica Gargiulo-Benitez, Director

The Mission of Montessori Academy

Our mission is to prepare students to be life-long learners and responsible citizens of the world community. Through the use of Montessori methods and philosophy, an individualized approach in multi-age groupings encourages developmentally appropriate learning of academics, social development and life skills. All children are given the freedom – in a structured environment that is nurturing, child-centered and supportive – to develop their gifts and pursue their interests while also learning the incumbent responsibilities.
