Our program is specifically designed for toddler aged children 18 months to 3 years. Maria Montessori recognized that the first few years of a child’s life are critical to the development of personality and intellect. We will provide a prepared toddler environment and allow our students the freedom to learn, develop self-confidence, and understand that they are part of a community.
Our Primary Program is intended for children aged 3 to 6 years. Our students begin with practical life skills that develop their concentration, independence, fine and gross motor skills, and personal and community responsibility. They will engage in hands-on lessons that provide them with the fundamentals for reading, writing, grammar, geometry, algebra, and the study of the natural world.
Our Elementary Program is designed to meet the developmental needs of children aged 6 to 12 years. Collaborative learning in an academically enriched, prepared environment drives incredible intellectual inquiry. Lessons in math, science, language, the arts and social studies ensure that students completing our program are well prepared the next level and beyond.
Our Middle School Program, Chiaravalle Academy, seeks to provide a quality prepared environment, rich with applied learning opportunities. Graduates of our program will be rigorously prepared for the challenges and opportunities of high school.
The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program is an approach to the religious formation of children based on the principles of the Montessori Method. It is rooted in the Sacred Scripture, Catholic doctrine, the liturgy of the Church, and prayer.
After school care is available to all primary and elementary students on days when school is in session unless otherwise noted. Students with homework will be encouraged to complete it before going home. Ample time is given for socializing and play.
Enrichment programs such as Chess Club, Math Club and Theater are offered throughout the school year. Programs are announced through our newsletter and weekly emails. Registration and a nominal fee are required to participate.
The Summer Program follows a Montessori style format, with a weekly thematic approach, and runs approximately 10 weeks. The program is educational in a relaxed summer format with numerous lessons and activities.
Students in our program are enrolled in an online learning suite and may choose one of 12 languages to study. This interactive program is complimented by resources in the classroom and support from our teachers.
