Battle Creek Montessori Academy is a tuition-free kindergarten through eighth-grade public school.

Here, you can expect a school where children’s natural desire to learn is celebrated, where moving at their own pace is encouraged, and their unique learning style is embraced. We will also offer a full day, five-days a week, tuition-based preschool program to children who are age three and potty trained.

Our multi-age classrooms are lead by State and Montessori Certified Teachers that guide students through long blocks of uninterrupted work time. The Montessori Method allows for individualized learning within the classroom.

Battle Creek Montessori Academy will be the choice K-8 school in Calhoun County.

Battle Creek Montessori Academy educates students through Montessori methods and character development leading to intellectual curiosity and academic excellence, developing children who are self-reliant, peaceful, embrace diversity and contribute meaningfully to their community.


Ferris State University (FSU) authorized its first charter school in 1997, and now authorizes 16 schools throughout the state. FSU believes that each academy authorized will have a positive impact on:

  • the lives of the children and parents they serve;
  • the communities of the families they serve;
  • the taxpayers of the State of Michigan;
  • and ultimately, the societies of the world.

To accomplish this, each academy must provide an environment to achieve academic excellence by delivering quality programming and instruction for the children it serves. The virtues of character include: the values of freedom, honesty, integrity, and civility, in addition to rigorous accountability to all stakeholders. The virtues of character are a part of our vision for each school academy.

What do Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Princess Diana, and Bill and Hilary Clinton have in common? They were all Montessori parents.

What do the founders of Google, Sergey Brin and Larry Page, the founder of Amazon, Jeffrey Bezos, Jacqueline Kennedy, and Julia Child have in common? They were all Montessori students.

Curiosity, creativity, and passion for lifelong learning are all hallmarks of the Montessori Method, where children are encouraged to ask questions, explore their interests, and develop mastery through hands-on experience.


MIChoice is a family-owned, Michigan-based, education service provider. Our team is passionate about all things Montessori.  Over the years, we have developed a solid curriculum that links our schools in the Montessori philosophy, but celebrates each community’s uniqueness.

Our teachers combine both Montessori and Michigan Department of Education school standards. These dual responsibilities help ensure that your child is receiving the best education they possibly can. The mixed-age classes enable students to learn and develop at their own pace and develop their role among peers.

We believe the Montessori education is one of the greatest gifts children can receive. Please explore the information on this website, and see for yourself why Montessori works!
