INSPIRING LEADERS OF TOMORROW

LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR CURRICULUM

At the Montessori Academy of Chicago, our goal is to develop engaged and independent thinkers who embrace community responsibility and leadership. Our teachers strive to inspire a joy of learning, academic success, emotional well-being, and creativity in each student, so they may advance from the Academy to make a difference in the world.

The Nursery Program is designed for the developmental needs of infants and toddlers.

There are two major components to the nursery program: a comfortable home-like environment for non-walking children, and an open space for the walking children to discover their world through exploration.

The space is created with your child’s need in mind to assist them in reaching their full potential. The furniture is child-sized and all materials provided are smaller versions of the real materials your child sees you using at home.

The Primary classroom offers children precision, exactness, and order through manipulation of materials. Preparation of the mathematical mind is crucial to further development of intellectual pursuits. Using concrete materials, we introduce abstract forms and calculations. Each particular quality of an abstract idea can be presented in isolation.

We support the natural drive for independence by encouraging children to choose activities of interest, without interruption. The resulting feelings of accomplishment and satisfaction engender respect from the children towards others.

The Montessori Elementary program offers an unrivaled option for the further development of your child. Designed for children between the ages of six and twelve, this program offers a planned environment that supports your child’s growing need for independence. Our Elementary program shapes not only academic skills, but also a child’s lifelong outlook on learning.

In the Montessori Middle School program, classrooms are treated as a community, of which students are vital members. As a member of this community, students are encouraged to remain respectful, honest, and held responsible for their commitments.

The multi-age grouping continues in Middle School, with classrooms of students ages twelve to fourteen. This grouping allows for peer mentorship, building leadership skills and self-confidence.
