  • Montessori is a time-tested, brain-based system of education that teaches to the whole child.

    Ongoing research in psychology and neuroscience continues to validate Dr. Montessori’s conclusions about children and learning, and the results are stunning. Based on her extensive observations, Dr. Montessori identified the time from birth to six years as the “Absorbent Mind” period, wherein children learn from their environment by absorbing information like a sponge.

  • Montessori at Athena

    At Athena, we also incorporate art and art history, gardening, music, foreign language instruction, and physical education for all students. The carefully crafted, self-correcting materials in the prepared environment are designed to help the child develop concentration, self-direction, independence, and a love of learning. 

    We encourage you to review articles demonstrating successful outcomes of Montessori that can be found on our Parent Resources page.

Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.

-Dr. Maria Montessori

Athena Montessori Academy

“I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my son’s education. The loving guides at Athena taught him so much more than reading and writing– he’s learned how to take care of himself and those around him while navigating the social community of his classroom. I feel these life skills will serve him well as he graduates and enters first grade in the fall!”
