A quality curriculum is necessary to ensure the continuous improvement of the educational program at Montessori Academy. To that end, curriculum is evaluated, developed and modified on a continuing basis.
Because of our commitment to preparing students to leave Montessori Academy ready for the next stage of their education, our curriculum is aligned to the Pennsylvania State Academic Standards. The standards stress not only procedural skills, but also conceptual understanding to make sure that students are learning the critical information they need to succeed at higher levels.
Although the standards provide a framework of what and when children should learn concepts and skills, their Montessori training determines how our teachers prepare the environment and guide the children in their learning.
