The mission of South Florida Montessori Academy is to closely follow Dr. Montessori’s original philosophy and method under AMI (Association Montessori Internationale) standards in order to educate young people to their fullest potential by developing their intellect, character, and spirit. SFMA's intent is to help children become lifelong learners who grow up to be capable, confident adults with a deep sense of personal independence and social responsibility.
What separates us from the other choices you face for your child’s education? South Florida Montessori Academy is one of only six Montessori schools in Florida that is recognized by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI). This ensures we strictly adhere to Dr. Montessori's original pedagogical methods, which were designed and tested over a century ago. Our whole child approach to education sets the standard for an integrated, comprehensive curriculum that promotes lifelong learning. Each of our teachers is highly educated and has completed a rigorous AMI Montessori training program. For more information on AMI's educational standards, please visit: www.amiusa.org.
Based on Montessori philosophy, our core values guide our community, programs, initiatives, and distinctive culture. At South Florida Montessori Academy, we believe in:
- Rigorous Academics
- Interdisciplinary Curriculum
- Mutual Respect
- Diversity & Inclusion
- Igniting Each Child’s Curiosity
- Guiding Children’s Desire to Learn
