The Mater Amoris Montessori School is dedicated to the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori in the belief that her teachings provide a scientifically based system which not only aids the child during early development, but throughout life.
The Montessori philosophy is based on love for the child, respect for the child's dignity as a person, and a strong desire to help the child realize his or her fullest potential in society.
The Montessori philosophy emphasizes the importance of spiritual and moral strength.
The rural environment of the Ashton, Maryland campus fosters the development of thinking, self-sufficient, and flexible young people - whatever their chosen course of life.
The 13-acre campus brings pupils into close contact with nature, where they enjoy clear air and spacious surroundings.
