About Us

Montessori Scholars Academy (MSA) is an educational facility in Alpharetta, Georgia that is dedicated to the highest standards of pedagogical practices for your children. Our school focuses on teaching your child the skills necessary to succeed in the technologically ever-changing world we live in. We have obtained SACS AdvancEd accreditation, which help demonstrate our dedication to the advancement of your children in our educational program.

All of Montessori Scholars Academy’s Lead Teachers are certified by one of three Montessori societies: Association Montessori International (AMI), American Montessori Society (AMS), or Pan American Montessori Society (PAMS) . In order to obtain this certification, the teachers must attend and successfully complete the entire training program offered at designated training centers for their specific level (e.g. Primary). The teachers must also complete a practicum and work as assistants in the appropriate classrooms before becoming a lead teacher. More information about the certifications of our educators can be provided upon request. Please feel free to contact us for more information, or visit the websites of the certification societies at the links provided here: AMI Website, AMS Website, and PAMS Website.

We believe that kids are born with a quest for learning and we strive to provide them a more joyous and fun-filled learning experience.

Mission

We seek to consistently serve children in a safe and nurturing educational environment by challenging and inspiring their individual quest for knowledge and skill, and by empowering the development of their self-discipline and self-confidence.

Vision

We envision children who grow up to become engaged, productive and compassionate members of society. We envision our school as a pathway to future generations of critical thinkers, creators, leaders and professionals who trust themselves and understand the world in such a way that they will confidently be able to create positive change.

The Importance of Family

Our school stresses the importance of the family-teacher partnership. Family members are invited to participate in the classrooms through a variety of ways: reading, cooking, classroom projects or participation in “going-outs”.

Official Parent-Teacher conferences are scheduled twice a year to discuss children’s progress, and individual meetings can be scheduled at the request of the family or the teacher.

MSA has set as a goal the education of the families it serves regarding their child’s Montessori educational experience.  It is crucial for the family to understand the underlying values that the child is acquiring at school, in order to support his growth. We achieve this through Educational Nights which are scheduled throughout the academic year to discuss topics ranging from the principles being taught, the areas of the classroom and its purposes, discipline approach and socialization.

In depth training for families is also another goal of MSA, and this is done in sessions offered to families twice a year that are called “Silent Journeys”. These sessions offer an opportunity for parents or other adult caretakers to experience Montessori in-depth, and support from home the work that the school is doing with the children during the school year.
