WELCOME TO

American Montessori Academy



We are a network of independent Montessori schools that offers year-round, all-day programs based upon the Montessori Method in stimulating learning facilities, located in South Loop and Andersonville (opening Spring 2021), affiliate schools on the North Shore, at-home through our brand new remote learning curriculum and delivered learning materials with the AMA Montessori Box product.

Our main objectives are to provide a carefully planned, stimulating environment which helps children develop within themselves the foundational habits, attitudes, skills and ideas which are essential for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning. When engaged in well-structured tasks, the students experience a deep inner satisfaction which leaves them with an overall positive attitude toward the joy of learning.
