Charlevoix Montessori Academy for the Arts offers a tuition-free Montessori education for ages 3 to 15—while the high school is a Montessori-inspired program which offers the same courses as traditional public schools but with a Montessori-philosophy perspective.
“For the first time, all children in Charlevoix have access to a free Montessori education from 3 years old through the eighth grade.” said Charlevoix Montessori Academy director Phoebe Gohs.
“Our elementary guides have completed the Montessori teacher training—in addition to being highly-qualified teachers—which enables us to offer an authentic Montessori experience for families,” said Gohs.
Students in grades nine through 12 currently work in a Montessori-inspired classroom, where students choose which courses to work on while guides provide direct instruction and are available to provide individualized support as needed throughout the day.
Charlevoix Montessori Academy for the Arts also offers a full Arts program with courses in art, music and drama while expanding arts integration opportunities throughout the day through the inclusion of art, music, creative movement and drama in student work.
Charlevoix Montessori has always offered a family atmosphere with small class sizes for all students in the community.
