Montessori Academy's vision is that each student
will become an independent, confident, motivated learner, and a responsible community member as a result of the dynamic partnership between
students, parents, and teachers.
This partnership within the exceptional Montessori environment, while developing these characteristics, enables each student to become a life-long learner.
The Montessori Academy Treasure Chest of Life Skills
Numerous authors have described Dr. Montessori as having had a passion for precision, order, accomplishment, and organization. Dr. Montessori cleverly designed her curriculum to incorporate specific life skills that relate to these attributes.
Our 6-9 and 9-15 students study individual skills that relate to these attributes, as well as respect for the materials, for their peers, and for the environment. The students study how individual skills impact and define each student's personality and how the skills relate to the atmosphere of the classroom. Student group meetings invite participation and a thorough study of the skill of the week. Skill cards are earned, stored in individual treasure chests, and become part of each student's portfolio.
Montessori Academy focuses on twenty different life skills including the four listed below.
Precision - a life skill
Love of Order - a life skill
Joy of Accomplishment - a life skill
Sense of Organization - a life skill
