ENROLLMENT OVERVIEW

Remarkable things are happening at American Montessori Academy — and we thank you for your interest in our thriving Montessori community.


We are excited to get to know you and your family, and we invite you to explore our schools, programs and Montessori way of life.

We are dedicated to providing an enriching and diverse learning experience for your child — both in the classroom through full enrollment, as well as Montessori programs offered through our remote learning and platform and other resources.

Traditionally, we begin the admissions process with a school tour that invites families to visit an AMA campus for walk-through and observation. We also have regular weekly information sessions, which are currently being conducted over video conference due to COVID-19 circumstances, and we hope to resume our walk-in format in the near future.

You can also contact us for more information regarding admissions or to set up a different time to visit.

American Montessori Academy’s Anti-Bias Anti-Racist (ABAR) Statement

AMA recognizes that biases are inherent in our world, however, we are actively working to challenge these notions and dismantle the systems that uphold them. These can include biases for or against racial/ethnic backgrounds, culture, language, gender expression, sexual orientation, family structure, cognitive or physical ability, economic class, and religion.

We recognize that every person — from faculty and staff to parent, child and family members — at AMA experiences privilege and oppression differently. It is our duty as Montessori educators to prepare our staff and environment to provide a safe and inclusive space for every member of our community. AMA is committed to taking a proactive approach to eliminating biases and/or racism in our environment. To that end, AMA is committed to:

  • Engage in yearly ABAR training for all staff members;

  • Recognize the biases and privilege that permeate our interactions with families, staff, and children;

  • Support each other in understanding and dismantling our personal biases and privilege;

  • Restructure our systems to eliminate barriers to accessing quality education; and

  • Incorporate lessons that teach how to acknowledge, honor, and celebrate our students, staff, and family differences.


Anti-bias/anti-racism work is ongoing due to the changing nature of a school community. It focuses on uplifting individuals to be proud of their uniqueness while honoring other individual’s differences while holding ourselves and our community accountable to practice and stay active in this work. AMA is dedicated to integrating and practicing ABAR education at all levels of the school community.
