Raritan Valley Montessori Academy

Celebrating 50 years, we are a community of students, parents and faculty defined by and committed to the four pillars of our mission; excellence, universal values, global understanding and service to others.
Academic preparation is not our only goal.  We develop social skills, emotional growth, global citizenship and responsibility and physical coordination.
We encourage the development of self-esteem, self-motivation, enthusiasm for learning, and being closely bonded to our community and the world. It is our committment that our students respect themselves, each other and the environment.
This philosophy permeates our teaching of children from toddlers through 6th grade.
