Christian Montessori Academy students learn at their own pace in a cooperative atmosphere. They are encouraged to make choices to help develop a sense of independence and self-worth. The Montessori materials provide concrete learning experiences and the joy of discovery. They are also the basis for abstraction in future learning. Advancing children are not receded, nor is any child required to attempt a complicated concept before basic knowledge is obtained. The classroom Guide is able to assist each child with lessons and therefore, "guide" him in his educational journey.
We believe that the impressions formed today have a lasting impact on a child's attitude towards learning and life itself.
Children attending CMA are not viewed as a group, but rather as individuals working toward their full potential within our community.
Christian Montessori Academy is dedicated to sending enlightened, motivated, independent thinkers into the world who are willing and able to strive for peaceable excellence in all areas of life.
TRADITION OF DIVERSITY
Christian Montessori Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, creed, or national origin. Applicants and their families should understand that Dr. Maria's Montessori's collaborated religious curriculum will be present and taught in each classroom.
Dr. Maria Montessori was a scientist and physician who pioneered early childhood learning and facilitated through her own designs, a way of educating children through purposeful play. Her curriculum includes all basic subjects: mathematics, language, writing, reading, science, history, geography, sensorial experiences, and life skills for children as young as age 3.
The Montessori method of instruction has been in place for over 100 years and continues to produce individuals who are capable of making decisions, learn to their fullest potential, question the world around them, and strive to overcome.
