Adolescent Program

12-14 years old


The adolescent years are an important time of growth, change, and mystery. As children move beyond the elementary classroom, they embark upon the journey of adolescence that will ideally lead them to maturity.  


Our Montessori adolescent classroom is designed to meet the changing needs of the adolescent student while encouraging a continuation of the love of learning and discovery.   

Student’s needs at this stage include:


  • social interaction
  • experiential learning
  • meaningful work
  • creative expression
  • positive adult interaction


By having these needs met, the students can experience a rewarding and positive educational experience. 


Based upon their needs, students often work in small groups to accomplish projects and are encouraged to work together on individual assignments. 


Our Adolescent curriculum includes:


  • Language Arts using StudySync*
