Productive. Peaceful. Positive.

It LOOKS different here.

Here at Battle Creek Montessori Academy, we have an open workspace that allows children to move freely from work area to area. In our classrooms, you will see self-motivated, curious children moving from table work to rug work, from letter sound sequencing to math manipulatives.

It SOUNDS different here.

One of the first comments we hear from visitors is how peaceful and quiet it is here, even in a building full of children using hands-on materials in multi-aged classrooms.

It just FEELS different here.

You can only understand the true difference that we offer, by coming in and checking it out for yourself. And NOW is the best time to visit – our classrooms are full of students that can demonstrate just how magical the Montessori environment can be.

The Montessori approach to education is grounded in the belief that children have the desire to explore and learn about their environment.
