Mission / Vision


The MMA mission is to nurture a child’s love of learning and respect for self and community through an authentic public Montessori prepared environment.

Guided by Maria Montessori’s idea that “the secret of good teaching is to regard the child’s intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown, to grow under the heat of flaming imagination. Our aim is not only to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core.”

Magnolia Montessori students will develop a strong academic foundation and a love of learning. Students will draw upon that foundation to explore the world through project-based learning and thematic studies in science, math, and humanities. Magnolia Montessori seeks to cultivate students who are responsible citizens in the local and global communities through service learning. In addition, Magnolia Montessori students will build relationships with community mentors to extend their learning beyond the classroom.


The MMA vision is to cultivate the ethical leaders of tomorrow and promote dynamic growth of the Montessori Philosophy in our communities.

In keeping with Dr. Montessori’s goal of making the world a better place for all humanity through education, it is incumbent upon us to prepare our students to be tomorrow’s ethical leaders. Magnolia Montessori Academy students learn to be skilled communicators, innovative and creative thinkers, collaborative problem solvers and take responsibility for their actions. We promote a culture of high academic standards, strong moral and ethical values through a partnership between home and school that fosters intellectual growth, independence, responsibility, and a sense of self-worth.
