Acarath Montessori Center

  • Acarath Montessori is a preschool day-care and first grade elementary school.
  • The word Acarath is an acronym for Academics, Arts and Athletics.
  • Montessori philosophy and education is the mainstay of the center.
  • While the children spend time each day in auxiliary activities, Montessori philosophy governs the interaction of children with the staff, each other, and the environment.
  • For an explanation of Montessori philosophy and its everyday application, see "Montessori Philosophy." Acarath is unique because of the activities we offer, and our student's daily schedule.
