The Montessori Academy of Colorado is a metropolitan school that engages each child through innovative academics, exploration of character, and a fearless, forward mindset. Students and families benefit most when they embrace the whole Montessori journey from Nido to Elementary. Our school is proud to offer a Montessori education for students ages eight weeks to sixth grade. Certified Montessori teachers lead each classroom, and our individualized learning curriculums allow all children to work at their own level in order to achieve their full potential. With mixed ages in all classrooms, children are allowed to become role models with the ability and excitement of helping others in the class. Each community builds on the next with new experiences and learning opportunities. We see children strengthen and mature their confidence, self-control, curiosity and persistence.
Our Elementary school combines the Montessori and Place-Based educational philosophies, seamlessly blending the independent, small group and experiential learning of both in a Spanish-English language classroom. In the work cycles, students use Montessori materials for hands-on understanding of mathematics, language, literacy, science, history, and geography. The arts in MAC’s Elementary school include an Artist-in-Residence and Makers Ed program, along with extended studio in Multi-Media Arts and Music, and Physical Education. Outings are at the heart of Elementary at MAC; these experiential explorations are designed to take advantage of MAC’s metropolitan location by exposing children to Denver’s culture and history. Service-learning is also a critical component of our Elementary curriculum, encouraging children to give back to their community through these intentional service projects.
MAC celebrates creativity and curiosity in all our students by encouraging hands-on, self-paced, collaborative learning through experience. We create an academically strong community where students will acquire self-efficacy and social and emotional intelligence from an educational foundation built on integrity, compassion and support.
