is that each student will become an independent, confident, motivated learner, and responsible community member as a result of the dynamic partnership between students, parents, and teachers. This partnership, within the exceptional Montessori environment, enables each student to become a life-long learner, respects the individual strengths, needs, and abilities of the student, and is a model within the educational community.
Montessori Academy developed lifelong learners before the phrase became popular in educational circles. It is the only school in Middle Tennessee that holds dual accreditation with the American Montessori Society (AMS) and AdvancEd (see links below for more information about our re-accreditation). The rigorous standards set by both accrediting organizations keep the focus on a commitment to academic excellence and continuous improvement.
Academics at Montessori Academy serve families with children beginning at age 18 months through 12th grade. The complete Montessori program is enhanced with specials curriculum including art, Spanish, and Music. Music includes general music, band, choral music, and strings. Children have opportunities for many activities through our club program including, private music lessons, piano, guitar, instruments, chess club, ballet, sports, sports clubs, sewing club, and foreign language clubs.
Our Mission is to be a vibrant Montessori community that engages children to thrive in our changing world.
