Our Philosophy

International Christian Montessori Academy is a European-style school environment with a separate pre-school and elementary school campus. Its unique, farm like atmosphere feels more like a Montessori Home of Learning.

Our curriculum and philosophy emphasize the development of the whole child. We create independent learners, who like to attain their personal best at their level of speed and development of growth. Intimate class sizes and qualified staff facilitate and encourage both academic as well as social growth. Christian Montessori provides the essential building blocks for lifelong success.
