We are now enrolling for 2020-2021 academic year!


South Florida Montessori Academy is a private Montessori school educating children between the ages of 18 months and 12 years old. We are recognized by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) and accredited by the Florida Department of Education.


We invite you to discover South Florida Montessori Academy, a renowned and internationally recognized Montessori school, with highly trained faculty, carefully prepared learning environments, robust enrichment offerings, and a vibrant parent community. Our learning environment with its beautiful wooden Montessori materials is designed to ensure that children have the opportunity to become independent, self-actualized adolescents ready to take on the world. We help children become lifelong learners as well as confident, socially responsible adults by developing their intellect, character, and spirit. Our integrated and rigorous Montessori curriculum includes Spanish immersion, music, art, chess, and sports.


A South Florida Montessori Academy education is by all accounts a tremendous experience, and our students emerge as high academic achievers yet still intellectually curious in their high schools, colleges, and beyond. Even for our youngest students, South Florida Montessori Academy’s integrated curriculum emphasizes geography, world cultures, history, humanities, Spanish, and the arts, in addition to the core subjects of science, mathematics, reading, and writing.

Our Mission

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.

Our difference

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.
