Montessori Centre Academy, Inc., a school nestled on 20 acres of private woodlands and accredited by the Middle States Association, is celebrating 50+ years of quality education.
Our staff has over a century of experience in education, and are committed to the learning principles of Montessori. For 50+ years, we have been educating children using the Montessori and current high education standards and current innovative curriculum to impact the child`s development. Every year we work, as all educators do, to refine and enhance the curriculum to meet the needs of the child and prepare them for the future.

If you care about your child's curriculum and about fostering the love of learning, then this is a "fit." It is a small school run by an intelligent and insightful Principal. The students have accelerated lessons without stress. Learning comes first here.

Academic standards are high. The teachers are caring and dedicated. Spanish classes start the 3rd year of pre-school. I have both my kids in school here and it's fantastic.
