Adolescent

ADOLESCENT PROGRAM

Ages 12 to 15 years

“The whole life of the adolescent should be organized in such a way that will allow him or her, when the time comes, to make a triumphal entry into the life of society, not entering it debilitated, isolated or humiliated, but with head high, sure of himself or herself. Success in life depends on self-confidence born of a true knowledge of one’s capacities.”

Maria Montessori

The Montessori Adolescent program supports students through a challenging time in their development – as they move away from childhood and toward their adult self.  Academic development is combined with opportunities for real world experiences and creative self-expression, in an accepting community of peers that treat one another with respect.

The program focuses on three primary areas – academic development, creative expression and real world experiences, which Montessori called  “occupations”.  Our focus on place-based learning engages students in subjects of humanities, sciences, and math by linking projects with student’s daily experiences.  Students develop skills of self-expression through artistic enterprises but also through journaling and seminar participation.

Launching in 2019 – Community Montessori School is excited to announce the addition of our Adolescent Program set to launch in August, 2019. This new initiative will add grades 7 & 8 to our community, providing an authentic Montessori option for children completing the elementary program.
