Montessori Academy serves families with children 18 months of age through 8th grade.
Montessori Academy developed lifelong learners before the phrase became popular in educational circles. It is the only school in Middle Tennessee that holds dual accreditation with the American Montessori Society (AMS) and AdvancEd (see links below for more information about our re-accreditation). The rigorous standards set by both accrediting organizations keep the focus on a commitment to academic excellence and continuous improvement.
This unique, diverse community offers an unexpected and astonishing alternative to traditional education in the Middle Tennessee area. We invite you to come, tour, and learn about this caring community of academic excellence as the first step in the admission process. Please contact Mrs. Cathi Prather or call 615-833-3610 to schedule a tour today!
