The School

“…Because education begins at birth.”
   – Dr. Maria Montessori


At the Montessori Academy of Chicago, we believe that learning is a journey. Our goal is to develop engaged and independent thinkers who embrace community responsibility and leadership. Our teachers strive to inspire a joy of learning, academic success, intellectual excitement, emotional well-being, and creativity in every student. It is with confidence, joy, compassion and leadership that Academy students venture forth on their unique journeys to make a difference in the world.

Our school is a proud member of the American Montessori Society and the Association of Illinois Montessori Schools. We welcome the opportunity to share more about our mission and background. Please also visit us during our informational coffees to learn more.
