Join us for a Montessori Summer!

Lower School

For Infant, Toddler, and Early Childhood students, the summer months are included as part of the year-round contract, providing a continuous Montessori learning environment for young children. Daily outdoor activities enrich our traditional Montessori curriculum, allowing students to bring their work into the courtyards and develop gross motor skills in our expansive natural playscape where children use real shovels for digging, balance on rocks with their bare feet in our sensory walk creek bed, develop their vestibular system in our labyrinth, and feed and care for our pig and chickens.

Upper School

Join us for the Elementary Enrichment Summer 2021: An Outdoor Adventure and Performing Arts Experience. We are offering a 10-week summer enrichment program, beginning June 1 and concluding on August 6. This year’s program is new and exciting! Areas of focus include:

  • Outdoor exploration
  • Hiking & camping skills
  • Drama & musical theater
  • Set & costume design
  • Construction of our new outdoor stage

We plan to host an overnight family camping trip at a local state park over the July 10th weekend so students can put their hiking and camping skills to good use. There will be an informal outdoor drama performance held during the last week of summer, so be sure to sign up for all 10 weeks!

All activities will be primarily held outdoors for maximum COVID-safety precautions. All rising 1st-6th grade students are welcome to attend. Families can choose to sign up for the entire summer term or by session. See the details below:
