our VISION

our MISSION

our PASSION

Montessori Academy's vision is that each student
will become an independent, confident, motivated learner, and a responsible community member as a result of the dynamic partnership between
students, parents, and teachers.
This partnership within the exceptional Montessori environment, while developing these characteristics, enables each student to become a life-long learner.

Montessori Academy is a unique school not just within the Nashville/Brentwood community but also within the national Montessori community.  We are authentically Montessori as attested by our accreditation from the American Montessori Society (the only AMS accredited school in middle Tennessee) and rigorously academic verified by our accreditation by AdvancEd (SACS).  Starting at age eighteen months and going through eighth grade, the Montessori pedagogical framework means that our students thrive in an environment that stresses and develops intrinsic motivation, self-confidence, independence, and out-of-the-box thinking (executive thinking skills).  At the same time we have a solidly academic program which has our students prepared to thrive in whatever academic environment they chose when they move on from here after middle school.

While most public schools are cutting back on the Arts, we view them as a very important component of a solid education.  With specialists in all areas, we have strong programs in the visual arts, strings, band, choral music, and drama.  These areas are highlighted each year with art shows, a musical drama performance, and multiple concerts.

Please feel free to look through the website as it contains a wealth of information.  You can call the office to set up a time for a tour of the school or ask any questions you may have.
